Bridal Veil Falls
Bridal Veil Falls is along the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, about 1.5 miles from Miner's Beach. It is a long slide that drops straight into Lake Superior. It is probably best seen from the water, although you can hike to it. According to the topographic maps the cliffs are over 160 feet high at the point the trail crosses above the falls. The falls slides directly into the lake for a total drop of at least 140 feet making this the tallest waterfall in Michigan.
