Ogemaw Falls - Baraga County

Ogemaw Falls – Baraga County

The small falls found on Ogemaw Creek off of Baraga Plains Rd. are located about a hundred feet from the main road, but due to a deep gorge they are surrounded by lush forest making for a very picturesque setting. The “hike” to Ogemaw Falls is a lot easier now that a trail has been put in place and signed. The main, upper drop of the falls (above) is 6-8 feet high, and upon closer inspection we found that the creek drops 3-4 feet just below a small pool at the base of the main falls, then narrows and slides down the remainder of the gorge and out of view.

Directions: From US-41 south of L’Anse, turn onto Baraga Plains Rd.(left) and follow it a little over a mile until you see a pond on the left after a curve. Park near the pond, then look forĀ a sign on the right and a dirt path back to the falls.
