Located right within Houghton, Huron Creek Falls is a tiny set of cascading drops with a distinctive urban flavor. Located behind the Copper Country Mental Health building, a stone's throw from a four-lane M-26, this waterfall is fairly east to reach. There are small rapids downstram on the way to Chutes and Ladders.

Directions

Park at Copper Country Mental Health Services off of M-26 on the back parking lot, close to the woods. With the traffic on M-26 it may be easiest to take Razorback north off of Sharon to get to the lot. Head down the gravel poor rock to the creek to see the falls.

    • Jacob Emerick Apr 12, '09 Not going to lie - I was hesitant on calling these falls until I saw the drop by the Foot Doctor. I'd read about them in a few Michigan Tech documents, heard about them from friends, but was hesitant on calling them falls until I actually saw them. Ignoring the pollution and urban setting, they are rather pretty.
