Jacobs Falls, Michigan

Jacobs Falls’ redeeming quality is that is so easy to visit! Jacobs Falls is a pretty waterfall not too far from Lake Superior in the Keweenaw Peninsula. You’ll pass by the falls as you’re driving along M-26 past Eagle Harbor. While you’re in the area, check out the beautiful, scenic shoreline.

The waterfall has two drops, the upper one not visible in the picture below. There is a very unstable “trail” that leads up to the upper drop and beyond, though it was very slippery. It is doable with the right shoes, though.


  1. Drive along M-26 north past Eagle Harbor.
  2. About 3-4 miles past Eagle Harbor, on your right (if you’re driving north), you’ll see Jacob’s Falls.

Accessibility: 10/10 (easy)
Height: 20′
Length of Hike: roadside
