Descent

Scott Falls at Hiawatha National Forest in Au Train, Michigan is an easy 0.1-mile out-and-back walk that leads to the 10-foot tall free-falling waterfall, Scott Falls.

This is not a hike but rather a very short walk that leads a couple dozen feet from M-28 to the base of Scott Falls. Scott Falls cascades in a free-fall waterfall over a bedrock that features a small cave behind it. The best part about this waterfall is that it's extremely scenic despite being right on the highway, has a small cave to explore, and hikers can get up close to the base of the waterfall.

Parking
Hikers will find a parking turnout along M-28 in front of Scott Falls on the south side of the highway. The turnout is large enough to fit several vehicles, but cars can park down the highway if they wish.

Pets
Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
