Exquisite Tannery and Memorial Falls in Michigan's Upper Peninsula | By Sherry Trautman | Traveling Michigan

If you are searching for waterfalls that pack a WOW factor combined with a good hike in Munising, the Tannery and Memorial falls are perfect for you!  These twin waterfalls in Michigan's Upper Peninsula are jaw dropping and the hike to them is just as awe inspiring.

You have two options for parking at the Twin Falls, Tannery and Memorial Falls. 

Option 1. Park in a small dirt lot on Washington Street then cross E. Munising Ave to stairs that lead to the two falls.  The Blue path leads you to Memorial Falls and the Green path leads you to Tannery Falls. 

Option 2. Park at the end of Nestor Street on the right side only. There is a sign to the entrance to the path leading to Memorial Falls.  There is a second path leading away from Memorial Falls taking you to Tannery Falls.

Tannery Falls

Tannery Falls is an exquisite waterfall in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.  Half the fun is "finding it" after walking along a fabulous towering sandstone cliff and forest trail.  

Be Sure To Bring:

  • Water
  • Sunglasses
  • Bug Spray or wear a bug jacket. This one is invaluable and has a hood.  It comes to right below my shorts and is a Medium.
