Tahquamenon's Path
Rising from springs north of McMillan, the Tahquamenon River drains the watershed of an area of more than 790 square miles. From there, it travels the distance of 94 miles before spilling into Whitefish Bay. The amber color of the water is caused by tannins that leach from the Cedar, Spruce and Hemlock in the swamps drained by the river. The extremely soft water churned by the action of the falls causes the large amounts of foam.  This has been its trademark for many generations.
