Winter Get-a-Way | One Day Trip Itinerary

Tahquamenon Upper Falls Extreme Winter Conditions
Winter is an incredible season!  There is so much to do: snow shoeing, cross-country skiing, snow boarding, snow snowmobiling, fat-biking, mushing, lantern-lit trails, sightseeing, photo opportunities, hot chocolates, bomb fires, friends, and conversations.    You have one day to get away and experience Winter in Michigan's Paradise.  

A must see and do for a one day stay is Tahquamenon Falls State Park!  Open year round, the park offers an incredible view of the Upper Falls.   Park in the parking lot then take a less than 1/2 mile hike on a paved pathway to view the Upper Falls.  This area is kept passable through the winter months.  Snowmobilers park their sleds in the parking lot and take a stroll.  These pictures reveal an extreme scene and a conventional winter shot.  Regardless, the falls are breath taking.   

Each Saturday in February, tradition has it that park staff members set up a groomed, lantern-lit cross-ski trail to enjoy.  The park office offers snowshoe instruction or a guided snowshoe hike and gear free to use Saturdays in February as well.

After hiking the trail, stop in at Camp 33, Tahquamenon Falls Brewer and Pub located at the Tahquamenon Falls State Upper Falls.and enjoy a  Black Bear Stout from their list of Micro-brewed in house beers as you swap stories with your friends.  

The lower falls is a series of five falls cascading in the midst of the river as it circles a small island.  Again, it is a short walking distance from the parking lot.  Coming to Paradise, one day?  Check out the Falls, take a snowshoe hike, and visit the micro-brewery.  Add another day to your itinerary?
