Hundreds of waterfalls grace the Porcupine Mountains and the surrounding area. You’ll find more than 90 waterfalls in the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park alone! Each season of the year presents different aspects of these natural wonders. In the springtime, the streams and rivers are swollen with meltwater, providing an awe-inspiring spectacle of rushing water. During the summer, each waterfall becomes an idyllic garden scene amid the lush green forest landscape. Fall brings the visual backdrop of the changing leaves. And in the winter, the cold transforms the waterfalls into mesmerizing ice sculptures.
