I have been visiting the Tahquamenon Falls for decades and marveled at its beauty. In my photos of the Upper Falls, I have noticed a platform on the other side. I looked on Google maps and there is a road that heads up towards the falls from the backside of the river.
On my most recent trip to the falls this Autumn I took the trip through the woods to see if I could get to the platform on the other side. I drove down the forest roads for over 30 minutes, I noticed a lot of signs for private hunting clubs and I began to get that sinking feeling that there was a reason why I have seen few photos from the opposite side of the falls.
As I got within a couple of miles of the falls it finally happened. I hit a gate and signs for private property. I was disappointed that my journey had come to an end but it was a beautiful ride through the woods on an Autumn day. I figured there was a chance that I may fail in my attempt but I knew that if I didn’t try then my curiosity would bother me for years as I wondered if I could make it to the other side. So if you have seen that platform and have wondered about it now you know that it is not accessible.
