Canyon Falls

Canyon Falls Michigan

The falls are fed by the Sturgeon River, a 106-mile-long river that runs throughout Baraga County and Houghton counties. The river flows in a generally westward direction.  When it reaches Baraga County, it begins to run northward and crisscrosses Baraga/Houghton county many times. The river flows out into Portage Lake and Chassell Bay.

Information and Location for Canyon Falls

Canyon Falls is located 15 miles south of L’Anse, MI.  It is right along Hwy 41 and is very easily accessible.  The trailhead is located at a roadside park.  The hike in to the falls is about 1 mile; make sure to bring a walking stick. and wear hiking shoes on the trail as some spots can be steep with tree roots running through some of the trails and muddy after a spring rain or snow melting. The falls are very popular for swimming and cliff jumping into the pools of the falls on hot summer days.  The large gorge that the falls feed into is quite amazing and gives it a very “boxy” feeling.
