Easily one of the Michigan's best known waterfalls, Bond Falls is formed from the outflow of Bond Falls Flowage (an upstream reservoir). A small roadside park and multiple paths maintained by a mixture of UPPCO and the state provide easy access to an impressive dome-shaped waterfall. Wooden pathways over the river give unique panorama views of the large cascade on black rock.
While the large lower waterfall is the main feature Bond Falls also has multiple upper drops. Small, even drops over stepping volcanic rocks mixed with short blocks and chutes lead all the way back up to the upstream reservoir and convenient gift shops.
Head east on Bond Falls Road from US-45, located about 9 miles south of Bruce Crossing. Follow the curvy road for 3 miles to the Bond Falls area, which has a gift shop and several signs nearby.
There are two main ways to visit the falls. From the state park there are easy paths to the wooden walkways that lead below the main drop, but you may need a pass to use it. Alternatively you can park on the road above the falls, near the gift shop, and follow the older path with cement stairs past the upper drops to wooden walkways.
