Category Archives: Root Beer Falls

After leaving the Presque Isle River we decided to see if we could find Root Beer Falls. I had tried to find it on an earlier trip but didn’t have good directions. We looked it up in Phil Stagg’s new book Waterfalls of Michigan and found it was not too far off of the main road. I had been looking for it in the wrong location. Turns out it is just east of Wakefield off of highway 28 just past the turn to Porcupine Wilderness State Park and the Presque Isle River.  We turned off on a dirt road and intermediately started looking for a wide place in the road to park. We couldn’t see the falls so we drove a little ways and turned around. Just as we were leaving I spotted it back in the woods. It was well worth the search because it is a beautiful little waterfall. It always feels good to bag another waterfall.
