Compared to it's big brother to the north the Little Garlic River does not have a large number of waterfalls, and the few that it holds are on the small side. What it does have, though, is the Elliott Donnelley Wilderness area that includes interesting sandstone riverbed, large pine trees, and Little Garlic Falls. The waterfall is a small, rocky slide near a large rock wall that empties into a deep pool.
Take County Road 510 north out of Marquette for about 12 miles, parking at the Elliott Donnelley Wilderness area just north of Little Garlic River. Follow the path upstream, about a 3 mile hike along a pretty little river. Alternatively you could drive just past the wilderness area and drive down Little Garlic Road, a dirt road that cross the river about 3/4 miles downstream of the falls, but the forest is well worth the longer visit.
