Nice views, a little trek for older or out of shape people but take your time and it's worth it. Park is nice

What a great way to start your land tour of the pictured rocks. The park setting is very nice and park rangers are there to answer questions and are very helpful. The scenery is beautiful and the water is crystal clear. I never get tired of stopping there. It is a relatively short drive from Munising and worth the trip.

Part of Pictured Rocks shoreline along Lake Superior, this is a beautiful and photographic site. The boat trip provides a view from below and there's a park to view Miners Castle from above. The rocks, the lake, and the green vegetation is beautiful. A nature lover's treat.

20 -25 minute stop with an easy hike- Easy hike- 10-20 minute hike appropriate for even little kids. The waterfall was nice to visit. The path is blacktopped.

You can see this for free by walking to the viewing platform or you can take one of the boat tours. We did both and enjoyed the views from both.

This is gorgeous, it looks like cliffs along the ocean! The main viewing platform is right off the parking lot, there are also bathrooms with running water and picnic tables. We brought food and had a picnic lunch there! I had a 3 year old who was getting tired of walking so we didn't do the lower viewing platform, the... More

We saw Miners Castle from the main platform but I walked down the lower one. The shoreline was beautiful as well as the water.

This is the only formation at Pictured Rocks you can drive to directly. The only drawback is the park service has put up platforms that keep you form getting very close to the formation.

There's a fairly lengthy walk and then a descent by stairs to this waterfall. Well worth the exercise and the sites to see at the end. The viewing platform is well positioned for you to enjoy the falls from afar.
