Hungarian Falls Trail
A prized recreational spot located in the heart of the Keweenaw, Hungarian Falls is one the most visited destinations for both tourists and local residents. A series of impressive waterfalls cascade down the steep gorge before draining into Torch Lake near the small town of Tamarack City. Mixed hardwood forests fill the valley, with towering white pine, dense hemlocks, maple, oak, birch, and other native species providing shade in summer and beautiful hikes in the autumn. A series of trails meander their way up both sides of the gorge, allowing hikers an almost unlimited number of viewpoints from which to enjoy the waterfalls' scenic beauty. The Keweenaw Fault, a billion-year-old geological feature, is exposed at the uppermost falls and provides insight into the history of how the Keweenaw landscape was formed long ago.
