  • Bring a good camera. This shoreline will amaze you. Every color in the rainbow and every type of rock formation. Best seen from a boat but there will be enough scenery even from the shore to occupy yo...  more »
  • Took the longer of the 2 tours tho see the falls. The guide did a good job of narrating. I'm glad I did the tour, but being from the southwestern US, I wouldn't begin to compare the cliffs and colors ...  more »
  • We enjoyed the cruise along the shoreline. Going back to do some backpacking and see it from that side.  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
