Welcome to the Tahquamenon Falls Wilderness Excursion located in the beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

The TOONERVILLE TROLLEY, an authentic narrow gauge railroad, takes you 5 1/2 miles through thick forest, the
habitat of bear, deer, moose, gray wolf, and many types of birds. This incredible train has been in operation since its early beginnings in 1927. Partners Joe Beach and Robert Hunter developed this unique train ride and river boat tour that provided the only access to the Upper Tahquamenon Falls.
Visitors and dignitaries from afar travelled here for this unique opportunity to view one of Michigan's greatest attractions! Utilizing Hunter's Logging Railroad, Mr. Beach and Mr. Hunter began a business that is still moving along the tracks to this day. Mr. Hunter's great grandson Kris Stewart continues the family dream.

Birding the Tahquamenon
Migrating birds using Whitefish Point to enter or return from Canada, pass through the park every spring and fall. More than 300 species, including the rarities, have been documented using this migration corridor.

The park also provides exciting birding during the breeding season. A variety of natural communities including, old-growth hardwood forests, red pine/white pine ridges, jack pine plains, grass and shrub peatlands, and black spruce bogs offer nesting habitat for approximately 125 species. Among these are several boreal species including spruce grouse, gray jay, black-backed woodpecker and boreal chickadee. Photo by Gina Harman
