  • The log slide overlook fell down the hill and into the lake in the winter of 2016-2017. It's not open as of the spring of 2017, but the Park hopes to get it repaired in the future for people to take in the views. Don't fall in!
  • A must stop and see when on a Pictured Rocks visit. If you are really fit and in good physical shape you can jump, jump, jump down the super steep sand to the lake. BEWARE though, coming back up is a really huge work out. The sand is so steep that every step up slides back down 2/3 of your stride. So well worth it if you are physically fit enough. The scenic view from the top is stunning. If driving East after this, check out Sable Falls. Be prepared to hike a long walk but well worth it if you go past the Falls and all the way out to the lake.
  • The views are amazing, Lake Superior is truly a fresh water ocean. Be warned that going down the hill is fast and fun, but the climb up is long and arduous.
  • Amazing view. Kids loved the sand dunes.
  • Trees need some trimming but if you can zoom past it, beautiful shots
