Downstream from the well-known and well-visited Canyon River Falls there is another waterfall. Upper Falls is a split drop marking the point where Sturgeon River empties from the confining slate box canyon into a wide, green rivery valley. Most of the water slides over a long slide of slate but the right side, partially hidden, drops down a small chute into a dark little pool of water.
10 miles south of L'Anse on US-41, the roadside park for Canyon River Falls is located on the right side of the road just north of the bridge over Sturgeon River. Park at the park, which is open seasonally, and follow the rock trail to Canyon River Falls. Continue on the path past the maintained area, along the edge of the slate canyon, until the path and canyon ends at Upper Falls.
