“Nature at its finest”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Arch Rock at Mackinac Island is a site to see. From the bike path below or from the look out above. I always stop to see this natural beauty on visits to the island. The views from above are simply spectacular. Something not to miss if you get a chance to visit Mackinac.

“A Total Surprise”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

I had no idea there would be a formation such as Arch Rock on Mackinac Island. We toured the Fort and on the back entrance we found that Arch Rock was an easy stroll from the fort. When you bike or walk on the shoreline, it is just past a great hotel to stay at, Mission Point! See it from both angles.

“Nice view”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Arch Rock is a cool place. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 stars is that the stairway from M185 around the island to the top has been closed all summer and is still closed due to a section washing out.

“Off the beaten trail”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We've been coming up to Mackinac Island for many years. One of the highlights of our trips is always Arch Rock. from below on the island circle or above by the arch itself, a great view. A nice bike ride east of town along the lakeshore or up the hills.

“Breathtaking”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Breathtaking views and a great photo op. Loved it, can't wait to take my whole family sometime. There are a lot of stairs to hike up to get to "Arch Rock", but it is worth it.
