O Kun-de-Kun Falls Trail Photo & Hiking Guide

Take a hiking trip to O Kun-de-Kun Falls!

Okundekun Falls (O Kun-de-Kun Falls) are located within Ottawa National Forest, on the Baltimore River. Notably, the trail is also a part of the North Country Trail system that spans several states from New York to North Dakota. If you’re looking to find these beautiful falls, you will need to head to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and head to Bruce Crossing. The O Kun-de-Kun Falls trailhead is approximately 8 miles south from there. There is a small parking area right off US-45. It’s a relatively easy hike to enjoy one of the tallest “plunge” type waterfalls in Ontonagon County. Definitely well worth the almost 3 mile round trip hike there and back. (more…)

It has been a crazy summer for both Jess and I. Unsurprisingly, we needed to have a few days to completely decompress. Our most favorite place to recover our sanity just happens to be a little slice of heaven located on the far Western reaches of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula known as the Porcupine Mountains. Or, as we like to call it… Heaven on Earth. (more…)

My favorite shirt ever, has the following phrase written on the back…

Since the drive to get a “nature fix” of that level is simply not feasible on a weekly basis, Jess and I have recently been on a mission to find some nature gems in the southeast region of Michigan.  Our first discovery this year… the Bald Mountain State Recreation Area!
