MUNISING, Mich. (WZMQ) – The Miners Falls area will be temporarily closed beginning Monday, July 24th through Friday, July 28th during the hours of 7:00 am to 5:00 pm EST. This includes Miners Falls Road and the parking area. Access to the Miners Falls Trail and Miners Falls will be unavailable during this time. Visitors can expect to see 3 to 5 dump trucks traveling in the Miners area during these hours. This temporary closure will only include Miners Falls Road and will not interfere with access to Miners Castle or Miners Beach.
Maintenance crews will be spreading gravel on Miners Falls Road to improve road conditions and repair damage caused by wear and tear. This work will improve the quality of the road and allow for a better driving experience while traveling to the Miners Falls parking area. Workers are looking forward to completing this important project that will ensure continued access to this unique natural resource.
Check the park website for reopening and updates on Miners Falls Road. Information on the other waterfalls of the park is also available on the website.
