Michigan's Upper Peninsula is home to over 300 waterfalls. From Tahquamenon Falls to the beautiful Munising Falls, Michigan truly has a lot to offer regarding waterfalls.

One of the most scenic and popular falls in Michigan is Bond Falls in the western Upper Peninsula in southern Ontonagon County near Paulding. It's about a four-hour drive from the Mackinac Bridge on the middle branch of the Ontonagon River.

Bond Falls is said to be one of the most scenic waterfalls in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

How Do You Get to the Falls?

Once you're in southern Ontonagon County, to get to the falls, take Bond Falls Rd. three miles from US-45 to Scenic Overlook Dr. and follow signs to the main parking lot. After that, it's only a five-minute walk to the falls. You simply follow the paved trail to the 600-foot boardwalk. You can also hike along either side of the river.

The boardwalk and main viewing deck are wheelchair accessible.

For years, I've wanted to take a road trip north to Michigan's Upper Peninsula to visit as many waterfalls as possible. Obviously, there's no way that I could visit 300 waterfalls in a single trip but I'd love to hit the most popular ones including Tahquamenon Falls, Bond Falls, Munising Falls, Miners Falls, Sable Falls, Manabezho Falls, Manido Falls, Great Conglomerate Falls, Nawadaha Falls, and Superior Falls. I think that's doable during a week-long trip.
