Pretty,but rather small. Nice little stop on bike tour. Probably not worth going out of your way to see.

A truly perfect example of Pure Michigan. It was absolutely incredible with the view over the entire lake. Take a carriage tour here or rent bikes to ride! We saw this on our carriage tour which was a great experience.

We were taken to Arch Rock as part of our horse and carriage tour of Mackinac Island. An interesting formation which I guess will eventually erode away.

We have been there twice ready to go back again next year. Be sure to walk down the steps to the lake and see it from the bottom and walk to Mission Point and relax in the front yard on the lake.

It has such an amazing view! I love it, and my family loved it too. It looked as if it was a painting! I am serious.

When I went there with my brother and wife this past September, it was a night walk. We did have flashlights so we could see the arch, but obviously we couldnt see out any distance on the lake. Since I am easily frightened, it was a slightly spooky walk for me. All the haunted stories about the island prior probably... More

Every time we go to Mackinac Island, we have to hike up to Arch Rock. Each time it's worth the hike/climb. Breathtaking views of the water and bridge.

On a beautiful day, you can see for miles. This is a very nice place for pictures and just admiring the scenery. Bring your camera.
