This little waterfall is located in close proximity to the well known Jampot, It took 2 minutes to walk to, it is near the road so be careful of cars passing by. You can climb up the side of the falls, but it is somewhat steep and a little slippery due to the water spraying the rocks. Good photo op!

This attraction is located right along Rt26 and there is a spot to pull over. The access is right along the road and it makes for a good photo opportunity. While there, make sure you hit the Jam Pot.

Cool waterfall next to M26 very close to the Jampot. I recommend that you park at the Jampot and get a treat there and walk over to the falls

Driving to Copper Harbor saw a small green sign for the falls as we passed by. Turned around to take in these roadside falls. Small but beautiful!

easy to find, if you are looking for it. Nice area, lots of traffic along the road, so watch any little kids, to keep them out of the road. Nice photo ops

Depending on time of year and rainfall later in summer will dictate how much is actually falling, but the scenery at the Falls and the surrounding UP is spectacular, so all good

Great adventure for a short climb and a hike. My 10 yr old son and I did this together and really enjoyed it. The climb is steep and the trip down should be done with care but the hike is beautiful. Before or after a Jam Pot stop, this is a great way to see some natural beauty and work... More

Great pit stop before the Jampot. Make sure to hike a little ways up the falls if you have the gear and weather...the bonus view is worth the effort

We drove past it, pulled over to take a photo or two. We ended staying for about 15 minutes. My kids did a little bit of hiking and we took some family pics that we'll end up using for a Christmas card.
