  • 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.
  • Trees need some trimming but if you can zoom past it, beautiful shots
  • Great views and ability to climb some dunes.
  • Amazing view. Kids loved the sand dunes.
  • 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.
