Tag Archives: Union Mine Trail

One of my favorite fall photography subjects is landpools (reflections). With the beautiful day there were plenty of reflections shots in the streams along the Union Mine Trail.

Normally the best time to photograph the many waterfalls along the Union Mine Trail in Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park is in the spring when the water is likely to be flowing. This year with all the rain there was still a good water flow in the streams along the trail.

While reading Phil Stagg’s book Waterfalls of Michigan I noticed there were quite a few waterfalls along the Union Mine Trail in Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park. I had been on the trail before but had not noticed any interesting waterfalls. As it turns out the best time to find the waterfalls is in the spring when there is good water flow. Fortunately there had been a lot of rain in the U.P. this fall and there was good water flow so we were optimistic of finding some nice waterfalls. We weren’t disappointed. They aren’t the biggest waterfalls but there are a lot of them.
