Tahquamenon Falls are the pride and joy of the UP, aptly located near Paradise in the UP. The Tahquamenon State Park is the second largest in the state. Besides the fantastic waterfalls, there are 40 miles of hiking trails, 13 lakes, and 24 miles of river, with fishing, birding, and paddling. People always ask, why is the color of the waters clear brown? A Yooper would know....do you?
