This is a packed trip with many adventures and lots of hiking! We suggest planning lots of rest time in the evenings... Also check out our hiking with kids tips or about our carriers for kids here!
Stay safe on the trails and leave no trace.
There is an upper and a lower falls. Be sure and try and hit up Browns Fishery while you are in this area!
Day 3 & 4 morning:
Pictured Rocks Lakeshore- The only way to see Picture Rocks is by Boat, Kayak or a long Hike. We suggest taking a day and a half in this area. One day enjoying everything along the lake shore (short hikes to waterfalls, dunes, lighthouse and more) and end that evening in Munising taking the sunset Boat Tour of Pictured rocks. That's not enough though! The next morning get up and head over to Chapel Loop Trailfor our absolute favorite hike in all of Michigan! More info about it here.
Head out on Day 4 afternoon towards Houghton, Michigan. We stayed at the beautiful Cabins by the Course -
Be sure and stop for a pasty along the way! We are still finding our favorite spots -what's yours?
We also drove up on a beautiful trail, that come to find out is pretty popular around here!
This park is filled with beautiful waterfalls and trails! Be sure and plan at least a day if not more here. We opted out of the long hikes and did many of the shorter ones.
To end the day we headed here. It was a perfect place to end our adventures as we were exhausted... Breathing in the fresh air and dipping our toes in the water right below this magnificent Waterfall was incredible! Click here for more info on Bond Falls.
This unique experience is like none other! You not only can enjoy the most beautiful clear Springs, the kids can pull you across the Springs in a raft! All for free :) Be sure and check it out in the summer or winter.
