Pinnacle Falls is located in the township of Champion, 8 miles (12.8 km) southwest of Big Bay, in Michigan’s Marquette County. A short 15 minute walk from the parking area will lead you downhill to the river and upstream to the falls. This waterfall is approximately 25 feet (7.6 m) high on the Yellow Dog River. It gets its name due to the large rock pinnacle on the right of the falls.
