The land extending northwest from Forestville Basin and the Dead River rises sharply over multiple rocky slopes and outcroppings. One of the creeks that flows off of this land is Holyoke, a tiny trickle of water that drains a sparsely populated sandy plain. Along the rocky journey this creek forms a long chain of drops, collectively called Holeyoke Falls, before flowing under the LS&SI tracks and joining up with Reany Creek. The individual drops are small in size, nestled between green mossy boulders and flowing over cluttered logs.
Turn north onto County Road 492 (Wright Street) from US-41 on the west side of Marquette. After a quick right turn head left on Forestville Road (should be marked with some recreational signs) about .6 miles after leaving US-41. Keep on Forestville Road, over the one-lane bridge, for about 2 miles. Stop at the parking area within view of the old power station, near the outhouse.
Circle back up the road on foot until you walk over Reany Creek. There is a pretty waterfall here, Reany Falls. Head up the creek and avoid walking on the private drive. The creek flows under the drive twice. Before the second pass it bends sharply to the north, getting close to the tall LS&SI grade. Climb up the grade and follow the train tracks to the left (west). Holyoke will be the first creek to flow under the tracks, a bit over a half mile down. Head to the right down the tracks to see the falls, which continue uphill almost to the power lines above.
