The Tahquamenon Falls
One of the United States most
breathtaking waterfalls, the Tahquamenon Falls of the Upper Peninsula,
will amaze you, your friends and family!
Experience this fantastic wonder
of the world that is set within a pristine wilderness. The Tahquamenon
Falls is over 200′ wide and 48′ high. Spring visitors will be amazed by
the 50,000 gallons of water per second that cascades over the
waterfalls!
The Tahquamenon River was made famous in the Longfellow poem Hiawatha.
According to Indian lore, the origin of the name
Tahquamenon is attributed to the water’s amber color, which is the
result of leaching of tanic acid from the cedar and hemlock swamps that
feed the river. A magnificent walk path will direct your way through the
forest within the Tahquamenon Falls State Park. These Upper Falls are
the second largest water falls east of the Mississippi. Also visit the
equally beautiful Lower Tahquamenon Falls.
