Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

The Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore offers a splendid array of multicoloured cliffs, rolling dunes and secluded sandy beaches. Over the millennia rain, wind, ice and sun have carved and gouged arches, columns and caves into the face of the lakeshore, all stained different hues. Hiking trails run along the clifftops, and Hwy-58 takes you close to the water, but the best way to see the cliffs is by boat. Those in a hurry can get a glimpse of the cliffs by visiting the Miners Castle Overlook, twelve miles east of Munising, or Munising Falls, one of a half-dozen nearby waterfalls, near the village’s well-signposted visitor centre.
