One of the most iconic drops of Pictured Rocks is also one of the more difficult ones to view from the land. Spray Falls empties from the top of eighty-foot sandstone cliffs and sprays down onto Lake Superior below. Some side views can be caputred from the shore on either side, but the best views are from the lake itself.


Starting in Munising, head east on main roundabout on M-28 along H58 towards the Pictured Rocks National Park. Continue on H58 for 14 miles until you pass through Melstrand and see a sign for Chapel - Mosquito pointing to the left. Take this road (Chapel Drive) for a mile and turn left on 695 (Camp Rd). Turn right at the fork after another mile and continue after the fork for 3 miles. Parking lot will be on the left hand side - there should be plenty of signs along the way for 'Chapel Falls' to follow.

After parking head to the trails to the north and take the right one to Chapel Lake/Falls. Pass over Section Thirty-Four Creek and Chapel Falls and keep on the trail until it meets the shoreline at Chapel Rock. This is about 3 miles in. Turn right along the shoreline trail and follow it for 1.5 miles until Spray Falls literally flows under the trail. Some limited views can be had from along the shore.
