Bond Falls: Accessible U.P. Grandeur
First, here's what the Michigan DNR says:
Bond Falls is a scenic and popular waterfall in southern Ontonagon County. The falls are created as the Middle Branch of the Ontonagon River tumbles over a thick belt of fractured rock, dividing it into numerous small cascades. Total drop of the falls is approximately 50 feet. Currently, roadside parking and picnic tables are available near the top of the falls. An accessible boardwalk with six viewing locations has been added to this location.
That last bit of info makes this a very special natural spot for those with mobility issues. A gently sloping paved path leads down from the parking lot to a fenced boardwalk. The views here are mostly taken from those viewing locations along the boardwalk that rings the base of the falls. Steps on the west side and dirt/rock paths on the east provide routes up the sides of the falls.
The drop of Bond Falls, in the southwestern U.P., is equal to the drop of the more famous upper Tahquamenon Falls in the northeastern U.P., though not as wide. But at Bond Falls you have much better access to the base of the falls.
There were quite a few families visiting when this was recorded, with ages ranging from elderly to newborn. If you are in the region, consider taking someone who normally has difficulty visiting scenic spots to see Bond Falls. They say the negative ions created by waterfalls are good for us. So is helping others.

Directions: Tale US-45 north of Watersmeet for 10 miles and turn east on Bond Falls Road in Paulding. Go 3.5 miles and you will arrive at the top of Bond Falls.
From M-28. just east of Bruce Crossing take Calderwood Road south to Bond Falls Road West. Follow the signs to the parking lot and the boardwalk to the viewing platforms.
This scenic waterfall tumbles over ancient fractured volcanic rock in several cascades for a total drop of about 50 feet in all. The falls pools at the bottom creating a little island with a bridge to the island so you can stand in the middle of the falls for an up close view.
There is a new parking area near the base of the falls and an easy level path to the viewing area where you will see one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the Upper Peninsula. A 600' boardwalk leads to 6 viewing platforms for a wonderful view of the falls
There is also roadside parking at the top of the falls where you will find a little park, picnic tables, grills, and a little store that sells snacks and ice cream.
The old trail with some steep rocky climbs on the east side of the falls is still accessible for hikers and there are other trails through the woods.
The steady flow of water over Bond Falls is controlled by a hydroelectric dam operated by the Upper Peninsula Power Company. The flowage above the dam is a delight for anglers of all ages and a favorite fishing spot for trout.
