We really enjoyed the beautiful National Park and scenery. Make sure to bring warm coats as it had been chilly.

For our first visit to Pictured Rocks, this was a great day hike. ~3.5 mile trail each way to a beautiful, secluded beach and gorgeous Chapel Rock formation right on the water. Highly recommend for a day trip!

The best way to see this entire formation is from the Pictured Rocks Boat Tour. This single pin tree is the only thing on the rock formation and is just beautiful.

Chapel Rock, Falls and Beach are all part of a ten mile hike that you can do around Pictured Rocks State Park. I messed my knee up three weeks ago but was able to do the loop in about 6.5 hours. Definitely worth it with...More

One of the most amazing sites you will see anywhere. A mostly flat and fairly easy hike in, don't miss this!

You'll enjoy seeing the spectacular view and lake-shore. Need to take a Pictured Rocks Cruise or perhaps Northern Waters Adventures (call 906-387-2323) to check. There used to be a long hike to see it on land, as well.

Definitely plan to do the 10 mile loop around Chapel Falls, Rock and Beach as well as Mosquito Fall. It is worth every step. The vistas are spectacular.

Water was absolutely pristine, beach great - very few people, kids said the best beach ever. The stream from Chapel Falls created waddling opportunity for adults and kids alike (range from 5-13 years). Hike to the beach was easy (3.2 miles).

I agree with Peg. You'll walk by the waterfall first them make it to the Chapel Rock. We took the boat tour and we didn't get very close at all. The beach below is fantastic though too.

Quick answer is NO. They are allowed in developed areas such as Munising Falls and Miners Castle and drive in campgrounds but not in buildings or on hiking trails or beaches.
