Black River Hike
On The Upper Peninsula of Michigan


There are hundreds of waterfalls in the Upper Peninsula. Among them is an impressive collection of cascading falls found in the Western U.P. along the Black River. The Black River trail parallels the Black River for five miles with its scenic rapids and waterfalls from just north of Copper Peak to the beautiful Black River Harbor on Lake Superior.
The high point of your hike are the five waterfalls making the experience seem more like a combination of a botanical and geological tour rather than a hike.

Directions to the trail.

From Ironwood, Upper Peninsula, Michigan, go east on US highway 2, just before Bessemer 1 mile turn north onto County Road 513 (aka. Powderhorn Road), follow 10 miles to the best parking at Great Conglomerate Falls. Camping available.

Conglomerate Falls

The hiking trail drops steadily as you near the river. At the falls, the river separates into two sections, falling 40 feet around an island of Conglomerate Rock, which gives the falls its name.

Potowatomi/Gorge Falls

An asphalt surface trail connects the parking area at Gorge Falls to the viewing platform overlooking Potawatomi Falls. The trail, rest room and viewing platform at Potawatomi are fully accessible, providing a unique opportunity to view one of our areas most beautiful waterfalls.

Sandstone Falls

A ¼-mile hiking trail will take you from a paved parking lot down a series of steps to the falls. The trail is short, but there is a steep series of steps. Not a large falls, but has varied rock formations and hollows carved out of sandstone and conglomerate rock by stream erosion.
