Explore Wagner Falls

Originally added by Sonja Saxe

A short half mile round trip walk through the woods will take you to a viewing platform at the base of the scenic Wagner Falls.

Wagner Falls is an easy-to-reach waterfall right off of 94. There are parking areas on both sides of the highway so even when the trail is busy you will likely find a spot. Its close proximity to the highway and short trail make Wagner Falls the idea place to go if you are limited on time but want a rewarding view.

The trail to the falls is only a quarter-mile and ends at a viewing platform that gives the perfect perspective of Wagner Falls cascading over rocks and logs. There is a bench on the viewing platform and if you get lucky and have the place to yourself it is a peaceful spot to relax, watch the waterfall, and eat a quick snack.

Wonderful Spot

Great scenery, the waterfall was great. Hard to miss on the way into Munising

Secluded with easy access.

This is one of the most beautiful waterfalls we saw while camping the Pictured Rocks area. Easy roadside parking, beautiful walks, the formed trails are beautiful and allow a great view but the real treat is off the beaten path. It is a fairly mellow hike, even after heavy rain the day before, and allowed for some of the most beautiful views I have ever seen of both waterfalls and the woods surrounding them. The only down side, I lost my sunglasses when I got back under the trees and didn't realize it until we were back to the car, a small price to pay.
