From Rogers City, it’s just 11 miles west on M-68 to the Lower Peninsula’s only major waterfall. Ocqueoc (sacred water) Falls cascades over a series of two- to six-foot drops. The picturesque site is a favorite of picnickers, sunbathers, and swimmers. A seven-mile trail for hikers and cross-country skiers starts next to the falls.
Just a few hundreds yards away, the Bicentennial Pathway (created in 1976) loops through the deep woods and over the gently rolling hills of the Mackinaw State Forest. The pathway’s three loops measure 3, 4, and 6.5 miles and are well used by area hikers. Bed down at the Ocqueoc Falls State Forest Campground across M-68.
