Trails at Ocqueoc Falls State Forest Campground

Phone: (989) 734-2543
Directions: Trailhead located at Ocqueoc Falls SF Campground
Not ADA accessible
The trailhead is located on Ocqueoc Falls Road, near Millersburg in Presque Isle County. Ocqueoc Falls State Forest Campground, immediately south of the trailhead, is open for camping from Mid-May through November. The trail is 1 - 6 miles in length (3 loops).

The highlight of this location is Ocqueoc Falls, which is the largest waterfall in the Lower Peninsula. In addition, there is access to the Ocqueoc Falls Bicentennial Pathway, which includes loop lengths from six miles to three miles; the trail is suitable for hiking, cross country skiing, and mountain biking.

The improvements made in 2011 include the enlargement and resurfacing of the parking lot for cars and cars with trailers; installation of an accessible walking trail between the falls overlook area, parking lot and the campground; improved access from the overlook area to the rivers edge; and new picnic tables and grills at the overlook. These improvements were paid for by grants from the Michigan Natural Resource Trust Fund, the Recreation Improvement Fund, and the Recreational Trails Program.

The access routes to the river corridor were the primary feature of this project, and are intended to provide users a choice in how they access the shoreline that fits their ability and desire for adventure. A recycled plastic decked ramp that complies with Americans with Disabilities Act design requirements provides the easiest route of travel to the river. Other access routes utilize natural rock tiers placed to offer a variety of climbing challenges. The upgrades should open up the climbing activity to more users, while armoring the bluff to reduce erosion caused by the heavy foot traffic and weather.

One of the climbing routes provides transfer stations at the top and bottom of the bluff so an individual with mobility impairments may transfer out of their wheelchair to start their climbing challenge. The height of the risers on this route ranges between four to eight inches and has tread smooth and large enough to allow movement between tiers while seated. Steeper inclines and smaller tread surfaces increase the climbing challenge on other routes.
