Marshall Falls is a set of drops on a small creek west of Ice House Bay in Lake Gogebic. The creek, which is reduced to a trickle in the summer, descends over giant tortured rocks along narrow mossy chutes and plunges before calming down near a gravel pit and flowing, sluggishly, into Slate River.

Directions

Park on M-64 near E Shore Road and head down the two-track on the north side of the road into the gravel pit. Note: there is a pit on both sides of the creek, the east one appears to be less active and make a better approach.

Head north up the pit, keeping to the left side, cutting off to the creek near the end of the pit. Follow the creek upstream to see the falls.
