Presque Isle River
#1 of 12 Nature & Parks in Ontonagon
Make sure you travel to the western end of Porcupine Mountains State Park to see the Presque Isle river hike and the 3 waterfalls that appear within a one mile stretch of the river leading out to Lake Superior.
Nice hiking trails and a great place to indulge in outdoor recreation, enjoyment of nature or mindful meditation.
Bond Falls
#2 of 12 Nature & Parks in Ontonagon
There are lovely little trails along both sides of the river (lots of steps and rocks, but fun if you're up for a little clambering about!), and a nice picnic/park area at the top.
This state park and waterfalls is an absolute jewel and thousands every year flock here to see the beauty and fun to be had here.

Luckily I did not encounter anybody going the opposite way when on that part of the trail, as maneuvering around each other would have proven difficult, but that's the price you pay in nature, which couldn't care...
