Eagle River Falls, Michigan

Eagle River Falls is a treasure of a waterfall in the beautiful Keweenaw Peninsula. The Keweenaw Peninsula is an extremely beautiful place. I visited in early May when the trees had yet to turn green, and I think it would be even more beautiful when the leaves turn in the fall.

Eagle River Falls is one of the more scenic waterfalls in the peninsula. Many of the waterfalls on the peninsula are very easy to view, and Eagle River Falls is extremely easy to visit. M-26 crosses right over the Eagle River, and parking area is directly adjacent to the falls. Pay attention to the old dam (?) that is found on the river. It adds to the view of the falls.


  1. Head north on M-26 from Houghton/Hancock. You’ll go a considerable distance and keep heading on M-26 to the village of Eagle River.
  2. As you pass over the Eagle River, if you look to the right, you’ll see the falls. The parking lot to get a better view of the falls is to your right.

Accessibility: 10/10 (easy)
Height: 60′
