Horse carriage ride
Oct 2021
Took a public horse carriage ride that went to the park. It stopped so you could see the Arch Rock. Very nice, but chilly.

Hidden Arch
Oct 2021
The arc is located near east shore of the Mackinac Island.
If you riding a bike, it’s not far from the main entrance of the Fort Mackinac(about 10 minutes of riding).
There is a platform situated above the rock with the great view of the lake.
Even in October, this place was very crowdy. There was a lot of carriage riders.
The best is to wait until crowd will pass. There are some benches nearby.
Beside of sunny spot on the platform, this place is shadowed, covered by tall trees.
It’s worth to see it.

Hi Roman, Thank you for taking the time to review, and we're glad you enjoyed your visit to Arch Rock! Since the arch is a stop on the carriage tour, it can get very crowded at times. We recommend visiting early in the morning or after 5:00, as the crowds are certainly thinned out. We hope you are able to visit us again!

207 steps but worth the hike
Oct 2021
Great view, even in the fog. Good exercise and a very nice, healthy walk. Enjoyed checking out Mission Point on the walk back to town.

Well worth the 207 stairs to the top for the view!
Sep 2021
Breath taking views of Lake Huron and sunrise. There are landing areas to rest on the way up to the top. Make sure to view from road looking up as well.

It's about a 15-minute walk (up a big hill to start) from the ferry along the road and a quiet path through the woods. If it's not crowded, you can get up close from the viewing stands for great photographs. Rest rooms available.

Pretty

It is pretty to see but it is a rock! I am glad that we stopped and saw it. Was pretty busy but we were able to get some good photos.

Thank you for taking the time to review. It is, indeed, a rock in the shape of an arch, which is why we call it Arch Rock. It's a natural curiosity dating back thousands of years, and we're thrilled that we can show it off in our park. Thanks again for visiting.

Best feature on island

We pedaled to this location twice. It is a beautiful feature and the walkways to it and above it allow for good photos.

Don't Miss This View!
Sep 2021
We rode our bikes to see the Arch Rock both ways, it's a lovely view and interesting to visit from the road below as well as the interior road to the top. Don't miss it.

Beautiful! There are two ways to get to Arch Rock: either climb the many stairs from the road or bicycle up through the island. There my be a line to take pics but it moves fast.

Beautiful , We did this as part of the carriage tour and it was very nice that we didn’t have to walk all that way and we still got to see the attraction
