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.

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.

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 / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes 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, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
