Jacob's Falls is right next to the road, so no need to hike anywhere. You don't even have to get out of the car to see it. Beautiful falls.

This is easy to see right off the highway. We stopped here to explore for a little bit on our way to other falls in the area. It was even more beautiful at the top of the falls!

Stopped along the way as we were exploring the Keweenaw Peninsula's waterfalls! This was an easy one to find, right along the roadside stop. The bonus of this one is that there are multiple waterfalls as you hike up the side trails. These additional falls...More
