Wagner Falls Scenic Site

Recognition: Legally Dedicated Natural Area

Size: 23 acres

Location: South of Munising

Management: DNR Parks & Recreation Division

Activities: Walking, photography, scenic site

Importance: The Wagner Creek cascades over rock ledges in this area before emptying into the Anna River, creating a beautiful scenic spot. The ledges and waterfalls that occur in this area, and throughout this region, are due to its underlying geology: a hard, resistant cap rock (siliceous dolomite) that overlays a much weaker and more easily eroded sandstone. This is an outstanding scenic spot during the color season.
