Manganese Falls is one of the last waterfalls on the tip of the Keweenaw and is located right outside of Copper Harbor. Lake Manganese drains down to Lake Fanny Hooe, a quick 100 foot drop, down a steep gorge that hides most of the waterfall behind steep rock walls and fallen boulders. A small viewing platform allows visitors a partial view straight at the crest and down the gorge.
Turn south on 2nd/Manganese Street, right next to the Pines Resort in Copper Harbor, and drive .7 miles to the wide shoulder and park. The path to the viewing platform should be visible from the road. To get a closer view follow the trails downstream and slowly climb down the gorge to a wooden bridge over the creek. Follow the creek and gorge back upstream to the falls.
