Twin Falls is the last waterfall on East Branch Sturgeon River before it flows into the Huron Mountain Club. The lower drop is a powerful chute squeezed between two rock outcroppings with a weird, inverted-spoon-shaped rock splitting the current. A few yards upstream a small fork empties into a deep, dark pool. Both drops are surrounded by scenic old growth and moss-covered rocks.

Directions

Head west on the Northwestern Road from the Triple A for 4.8 miles to Dodge City, a tiny hunting camp consisting of a few cabins. From here go north along the logging roads, either driving or walking along the dirt track, for 3.25 mile before cutting right down a steep, overgrown four-wheeler path to the river. Follow the tied yellow markers to the river and falls.
