  • We completed the nine mile hike from the Chapel Falls parking lot around to Mosquito Falls and back. The hiking path gets narrow at times and isn’t marked the greatest, but it is a great hike. The sce...  more »

  • Breathtaking views! Visiting Pictured Rocks by land or water delivers a great adventure. For hiking enthusiast there are miles and miles of hiking trails to enjoy. For kayakers the water is so clear and fresh, and the shoreline provides a completely different perspective of the shoreline. Beaches are beautiful sugar sand. The park has many waterfalls and points of interest. Late in the day, in the last few hours of daylight, is one of the best times for viewing, as the sun lights up the shore and brings out the colors of the layered rock. Remember, if you’re on the water that it is Lake Superior and conditions can change in an instant.
  • Absolutely amazing. My family and I took the boat tour, it was great. If you are easily sea sick the boat isn't for you the is a lot of rocking. The rock formations are awesome to see and truly beautiful. There where water falls and the history behind the rock was interesting. Truly worth going to see. You can also walk up on top of them and look out, this was also an amazing experience.
  • My boyfriend took me to see the ice caves and they were worth every slippery uphill step! Make sure you have ice cleats or you will have a rough time seeing everything and taking the best pictures possible. We went on a Sunday and it was super peaceful and we had the ice all to ourselves - and the ice climbers, which were very impressive to watch and respectful of hikers' safety.
  • 🏆A TOP 10 PLACES IN AMERICA If this Coastline were in - say - California it would be mentioned in the same breath as Big Sur for its unsurpassed beauty. The big question; should Michigan feel slighted because PICTURED ROCKS seldom makes the cover of travel magazines? Having been to the circus that is the Yosemite Valley where it took nearly 2 hours to find a parking space, and then here where I hiked for 2 hours and never ran into a soul, I'd say - let's not tell California about this place. I'm fine with this gem being our little secret.
  • Beautiful place, first time visiting here in my lifetime. I’ll tell you this I can’t wait to go back. Do yourself a favor and pay for the boat tour and do it more towards the evening as the colors change dramatically. Lots of trails along the rocks, you can see different waterfalls. Wear good shoes if your going to be doing the trails... definitely worth visiting
