In the town of Quinnesec, Michigan there is a roadside waterfall called Fumee Falls. Named after it's water source Fumee Lake, which is about a mile upstream. This is a multi step waterfall with the upper falls being viewed from a platform above the main falls. The area around the falls is marked no trespassing due to previous extreme footwear causing a collapse of the rocks. This makes shooting the upper falls in a single shot practically impossible. Also, there is an ugly sign right in the way, too.
I have driven through this area a few years back and stopped at the falls only to find it running with a low water flow.
