If you’re doing a road trip around the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, you may come across roadside waterfalls.
And Alger Falls is one of the easy access waterfalls located right off a highway that’s located in Munising.
You may come across Alger Falls naturally if you drive straight from Tahquamenon Falls to Munising.
These roadside waterfalls are located right at the intersection of the highways M-28 and M-94.
And once you’re at this intersection, you can see Alger Falls from the car if you’re looking out for it as you pass it. Better for the passengers, not driver, to look for and enjoy. 😉
Because it is right along the highway, this also means that if you do stop to get out of the car, you’ll want to be careful. Cars will likely be going 60+ mph.
How to see Alger Falls
To know when you’re getting close, you can keep an eye on google maps with your GPS.
The location of Alger Falls is on google maps.
You may also consider parking at Wagner Falls where there’s a proper parking lot that’s just down the road on M-94, and then walk to Alger Falls from there. It would be about a 10 mile walk.
You might want to download offline google maps before you leave home though, as data is spotty in the UP. Offline maps will allow you do navigate even with no data. GPS will usually work.
If you want to make it a super quick stop, you can get out of the car right in front of Alger Falls and take pictures from the road. There is a small pullover area for parking.
If you want to take in the waterfalls a little more, then it’s possible to get up close to the waterfalls too. The trail might be a little muddy.
And that’s a bit about a short visit to waterfalls in Munising!
