After hiking the Union Mine Trail in the Porcupine Mountains we drove through the park on the South Boundary Road to the Presque Isle River. Our intent was to walk the loop trail along the river. Unfortunately the fall colors were not that great so we decided to walk along the boardwalk to check out the waterfalls. Normally on a visit to the River we stop for some photos of the bowls from the suspension bridge. This is the iconic shot that everyone takes. Unfortunately this year there was so much water in the river that the bowls were covered in water. This is a shot from an earlier visit.

We walked across the bridge to the island and down to the mouth of the Presque Isle River.

The water was still low enough that we could walk along the east side of the river following to the North Country Trail.

We then headed back to the suspension bridge and hike along the boardwalk to Manabezho Falls.

After a few photos we continued on to Manido Falls before returning to the car.

Manabezho Falls is the largest waterfall on the Presque Isle River. It is located on the western end of the Porcupine Wilderness State Park. The day we were there was a beautiful fall day and we had time to walk the trail on both sides of the river.

More fall photos from the Presque Isle River can be found on my website.
