Presque Isle River Falls

Presque Isle River Falls

Located in the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park the Presque Isle River is home to several waterfalls. The Lagoo, Nawadaha, Manido, and Manabezho are all located on the river along the western edge of the Porcupine Mountains. Head along Hwy 519. The waterfalls are all easily accessible and a short walk from the parking destination.

The best way to see these falls is to hike the Presque Isle River Waterfall Loop trail-head. This is a 1.6 mile hiking trail. Traveling on Hwy 519 up from Wakefield until you reach Presque Isle Rd. Follow this straight until you need to turn right on South Boundary Rd. The trailhead parking is right over the river.
