Walk a little west and north of Tahquamenon Falls, and the landscape reverts to a pattern that is representative of vast swaths of the eastern Upper Peninsula Low sand ridges, arranged in long arcs, overlook flat bogs; the water level in those bogs rises with the snowmelt and falls steadily in summer. This is a neat hike in quiet, remote country. Skilled hikers, who aren’t fazed by following faint trails or having to search for the next blaze, should consider it. In the spring and perhaps early summer, count on water levels that may come over the tops of your boots at the boggy spots.
