The Sturgeon River enters a group of tough slate rock a few miles downstream from Canyon River Falls to form a series of low rapids and falls. Tibbet's Falls is located on the south side of Barage Plains just before the river starts a long sweep northwards. While the waterfall is small and spread out the area is pleasantly remote and has easy access from the North Country Trail.
Take Plains Road north from M-28 for 3.4 miles, crossing over Sturgeon River on the way, before turning left on a small sandy road. The first left fork will lead to a two-car parking area with a trail leading south to the river. Follow the trail downhill to the river, taking the first split right to view the falls from a downstream angle.
