This is a truly beautiful view of the sweeping shoreline along the second largest lake in the world. One can see the light houses of Au Sauble the west and the one in the quaint village of Grand Marais to the east. I visited this site 30 years ago and it hasn't changed much except that the US National Park... More

Took a drive along the shoreline and stopped for photo's, Very cool. There is a sign giving you the history, very cool. Worth the quick stop.

No reason to not stop by when you are in the south shore area. Wonderful overlook of a unique natural formation. Extremely short walk from the parking lot.

Pull up your car and check out the Log Slide Overlook. Always a stunning view, and just a short easy hike from your parked car.

This was our favorite place in Grand Marais! After driving a while we got to a nice, shaded parking lot. Bathrooms there were in reaaaallly bad shape. A small hike led us to a fork, to the south we had an overlook where we could see the log slide, the dunes and the open water. Its the kind of place... More

The drive down H58 is peaceful and beautiful. This stop along the drive offers two vantage points of the shoreline (dunes) and some historical pieces too.

Great view of nature and the sand dunes meeting the water. The sign says don't go beyond this point the return trip may take 2 hours, there are a lot of people that can't read

Most impressive thing to see in the Pictured Rocks Lake shore. Seen this several timers over the years, always impressed.

Short hike to a very impressive and steep overlook. The history behind the place is really cool. You can go down the steep cliff and make it back up in about 20 mins. The view is spectacular.

We stopped here while traveling through the pictured rock lakeshore. It's only a short hike to see where they used to send logs into Lake Superior. There is a nice platform with a picturesque view.
