Northern Wisconsin has been my second home since I was 4. Over the past few years I have tried to see something new and Bond Falls was on my list. It did not disappoint.

Spectacular Bond Falls, a Michigan Scenic Site, is located on the Middle Branch of the Ontonagon River, 10 miles north of Watersmeet or 9 miles south of Bruce Crossing in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

This scenic waterfall tumbles over ancient fractured volcanic rock in several cascades for a total drop of about 50 feet in all. The falls pools at the bottom creating a little island with a bridge to the island so you can stand in the middle of the falls for an up close view.

There is a new parking area near the base of the falls and an easy level path to the viewing area where you will see one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the Upper Peninsula. A 600′ boardwalk leads to 6 viewing platforms for a wonderful view of the falls and an ideal location for photographers.
