Haven Falls, Michigan

Haven Falls in May 2009

Haven Falls is one of the more isolated waterfalls in the Keweenaw Peninsula. Off of a rather desolate stretch of US-41, you’ll turn onto Lac La Belle Road, which is also rather quiet. (Lac La Belle Rd. is paved. Some GPS units will suggest you take other roads which are often unpaved. Do not follow those directions, but instead the much safer Lac La Belle Rd.) The falls are found near Lac La Belle, and is surrounded by a number of houses. The area is beautiful and the falls, while smaller, is very pretty. The falls also benefit from being very easily accessed once you have finally arrived. They are just feet from the parking area in very plain view.

Heading back toward Houghton, I headed east toward Lake Superior and the Keweenaw Bay. If you head this way, you will be treated with an amazingly beautiful stretch of the lakeshore for a number of miles. Bete Grise Road leads you toward some very small towns/villages/unincorporated areas that are very interesting. A GPS can be helpful, since the roads are rather distant.

Directions:

  1. Heading north on US-41 in the Keweenaw Peninsula, turn onto Lac La Belle Rd. Head for about 4 miles down the paved road to a split in the road.
  2. Turn right at the split in the road and head about 0.5 miles to the park where the falls are very easily accessed. The park is just across from a lake.

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