Great View

Take the carriage tour to get to it. The carriage tour is worth the trip. Only had to climb up a few steps to get the great view.

An interesting stop on our carriage ride. Scenic, but not a great angle for taking pictures. Worth a look though.

Great legend of how this arch formed but now everyone believes it was by the glacier. Wonderful photo opportunity with a scenic overlook as well.

Not much going on in Mackinac Island and the Arch is one thing to View. If you bike around the Island you can view it looking up through it.

I was surprised at the various colors of the lake. We were on a tour so we had about 7 minutes to see this site but it was pretty. My photographs did come out spectacular

I'm not a fan of Mackinac Island. I'm not impressed with all the typical tourist crap on the island. Arch Rock is a spot you could ride your bike to. It would take about 5 minutes to see the arch.
