  • This is a fun little stop with a cheap price to climb to the top. It was a great view of the lakes and scenery of St. Ignace.  more »
  • There are 171 steps each way...trust me, I counted. But there are several areas to rest along the way and hand tails. The views from the top are stunning. Very worth it at the bargain price of $1. Plu...  more »
  • Really just went to check the gift shop to see if they had any "Wooden Nickels".,which were out of. Being as I use a cane we didn't pay to climb the Rock. Did take some picture. Would have loved to go...  more »

  • Great tourist trap, vista is nice, and you can see the mackinaw bridge's towers in the distance, and of course lake Huron. only a $1 per person and the gift shop is more like a gift wal-mart. Getting to it however, is odd. You have to come from I-75 from the north as for some reason, the spot is it's own highway exit, so that's odd. You can be in and out in a half hour and it's quite a sight. Obviously not handicapped accessible, no stair lift either so enjoy the 100 step stair case.
  • I've been comming here since I was a little boy and now I get to share it with my boys. Great place to take a pit stop on a trip to the UP.
  • Fun little spot. They have a penny stamper! Great view if you climb the rock...do it! Do it!
  • It's a quick easy stop for young children. The steps are a little steep and slanted in areas. I was carrying a newborn baby in a wrap and felt uneasy on the way back down. The view was beautiful. It isn't the most amazing place in Michigan, but worth it for a nice view and some exercise for only $1. The gift shop was nice as well.
  • Short hike up to a nice vista, bring bug spray. Large gift shop at the base and a statue of Paul Bunyan.
