MNA Memorial Falls is in Munising, off of H-58. Some of the locals refer to this waterfalls as “Twin Falls”. This is a very seasonal waterfall and is often dry. However when the water is flowing, which may only be after a good rain or when the snow is melting, you will be treated to a very pretty gorge with two waterfalls in it. MNA Memorial Falls is owned by the Michigan Nature Association and it is open to the public.
To visit the falls from Munising, head east on H-58 and turn right on Nestor street. There is a sign that says “MNA Memorial Falls” on the right. Park here and follow the trail. The trail will take you to the top of the falls. There is a small wooden bridge that crosses the creek just above the falls. The trail continues downstream along the top of the gorge and then works its way back to the base of the falls. It is at most a 10 minute walk.
Two streams empty into this gorge, but the second one likely only has water after or during a good rain. One very interesting feature of this gorge is a “window” in the walls between the two falls. You can crawl through this window, or just walk around it. You can see each of the waterfalls through this window.
