Pinnacle Falls is billed as a remote, wild waterfall, located eight miles west of Big Bay, near Marquette. Danielle Adams and her friend, John take us there today. Iím going to let Danielle tell you about the adventure:

ďWe went out to Big Bay and drove around, where we saw the sign for Pinnacle Falls. Drove in the woods for a few miles until we got to a small parking area. Thereís a walking trail from there and itís about 1/2-3/4 of a mile down a steep canyon ridge to get to the Yellow Dog River below, then maybe another 25 -50 yards to see the falls! It was an awesome find and sight for sure! Well worth the hike to get down there. BUT the hike back up the hill is no joke. It kicked our butts, but we made it back up in roughly 10-15 minutes.Ē
Needless to say, it sounds like a bit of a challenge to get there and back, but no worries, Danielle also made a video, so we can be there without the hike both ways.

If you do want to take the adventure, click on the link at the beginning of the notes for directions to find the location.

Heard of them, but never been there. Maybe next time we're up, we'll visit (and perhaps shoot a video ;-)

Beautiful! Never been there either, maybe next
life. Reminds me of Abrams Falls, TN.

We had tried to find these falls (maybe before the sign went up) and never did. Thanks for featuring them!

One place I too have never been to either, we often
talked about it back in the NMU days... oh well,
maybe someday. If we can't drive the truck the
whole way.... doubtful lol Great pics and video

Danielle, very nice! Thank you for sharing! I've
got to get down there sometime with a flyrod. I
bet there are some massive brook trout in that
pool at the base of the falls!

Was that involved in that huge flood a few years

By Laurie B. (Ratherberiding) on Thursday, November 19, 2020 - 05:18 pm:

I have been to this falls a couple of times. The last time, this
past spring. There was still quite a bit of snow on the ground
so we had a longer hike since we couldnít park as close as
you can when there is no snow. Winter was not kind to the
trail! It was quite different than the last time we had hiked in.
I was hoping for a better view for photos, but unless I walked
into the river, well, that wasnít happening. Still beautiful!
No, this was not part of the flood some years back. That was
the Dead River, this is the Yellow Dog!

By Danielle Adams (Badkid) on Thursday, November 19, 2020 - 05:31 pm:

It was a hike for sure!!

Itís a long ride back to get there but so worth it if you follow the
clues as it isnít signed very well.
