It was a cold blustery day and I had less than hour to enjoy it. I viewed it from the Look out decks. Beautiful.

Was a fairly easy walk but there are many steps. Beautiful view of Lake Superior from here. There are bathrooms and picnic tables available.

Beautiful park, helpful visitors center and great overlooks. To hike to Moner's cAstle isn't the same as taking the boat tour, but certainly worth the time and effort. It's a very easy walk to all three overlooks and a short hike to,the beach. The hike to,the beach is a through the forest, so there are a lot of roots and... More

It's an easy stroll from the parking lot to the rock - and the view is amazing! The kids loved it, the dog loved it, we loved it!

Well worth the hike in. The shoreline combined with the spectacular rock formations are a must see. I also enjoyed the educational plaque that showed before and after pictures of how the rock formations have changed in the area over the last hundred years or so.

Make sure you go on a nice day so you can walk the upper park area and get great pictures overlooking the Castle. If you look close, there is water running through the structure almost looking like a waterfall.

This was really beautiful. My mom, who is on a cane, could walk to the 1st overlook. I walked lower down the cliff to take everything in. The walk to the lower observation is easy going down but be aware it is steep going up. There is a lot of handicapped parking there.

Miners Castle Rock is a rock formation, one of the most well known, along the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. It is one of the few easily accessible portions of Pictured Rock to see from land and I highly recommend visiting if you have a short period of time in Munising, or if you are older/in poor health, along with taking...

Upper Peninsula of Michigan is a great place for a road trip. With multiple water falls 3 of the great lakes and plenty of natural wonders. The people are friendly and the food is great. They love their white fish.
