Yellow Dog Falls is located on the Yellow Dog River in Marquette County. This river is said to run wild throughout the country, untouched by human development and it’s clearly true. Many of the waterfalls are not very easily accessible. Yellow Dog Falls is one of the larger falls, nearly twenty feet in height and is the most accessible.
There are seven primary drops to this waterfall, although several only range a few feet in height. The surrounding area is very rugged with lots of boulders, woods and rapids. The trail is easy to follow and easy to traverse. If you were short on time, I would not recommend making a stop here compared to the other waterfalls in the area.
To get to Yellow Dog Falls, from the intersection of Country Road 550 and 510, head south on 510 for about 6 miles until you reach the bridge. This bridge crosses the Yellow Dog River and there is a small parking area on the east side. From there, you’ll hit the foot trail and walk for about a mile until you reach the falls. The trail continues after that for a bit but we didn’t see anything of extreme interest beyond.
