Iron County - A Land of Hills

Iron County is tucked away in the southwestern end of the Upper Peninsula, landlocked and composed of hilly forested highlands. The main watershed here is the Michigamme River, which flows south from the Huron Mountains and was once home to a number of impressive waterfalls. Today that river is held up by a number of reservoirs. Now most of the waterfalls are tucked deep in the woods, small drops and rapids between the sharp hills.
