    This is a short drive along Gitche Gumee's lake shore. The views of the lake during gale warnings the day we were there were powerfully humbling.  more »

    Beautiful and historic, Pictured Rocks is breathtaking. We hiked along the North Country Trail above Lake Superior. Well worth the drive.  more »

    Went to Chapel Rock trails. Beautiful place. Great views and decent trails. The only bad part was the black flies. Wore a long sleeve t-shirt and they bit through it. My brother must have had 30 on his back. Couldn't stop to look at the rocks without getting swarmed. It was a bummer. Also 6 mile rough dirt road leading to the chapel rock area.

    Awesome scenery along the lakeshore! Great (but muddy) hiking trails. Enjoy the views as you hike high above the shoreline. Little Beaver Lake Campground was the best primitive campsite we've ever had.

    Backpacked from Sable Falls to Munising. Hiked over dunes, through forests, along the beach, on sandy trails, over creeks, beside waterfalls, and atop 200 foot cliffs overlooking Lake Superior. Beautiful diversity and picturesque views every step of the way.

    I highly recommend the boat tour. It gives you a great view of the rocks with a very knowledgeable crew explaining as you go along.

    Lovely walk and beautiful views. This guy couldn't get enough of the view. He loved it all much he couldn't see to read the signs posted
