Tahquamenon Falls State Park: Rivermouth Pines Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Nothing about the upper or lower sections of the Tahquamenon—a quiet river, meandering yet ponderous—hints at the cataclysms in the middle. Springing up from the Tahquamenon Lakes, the river is steeped in tannins as it flows through cedar bogs, giving it a unique copper tone (locals sometimes call it Root Beer Falls).
The more dramatic of the two sections, the Upper Falls sends water over a 48-foot drop. At this point the river has expanded to more than 200 feet, creating a wide curtain of falling water. The Lower Falls farther downstream are a combination of five smaller cascades, which are a bit more approachable."
