Owner description: Natural rock bridge soaring 149 feet above the Straits of Mackinac appears to be suspended in midair.

This special place is several hundred feet above the lake which makes it's creation difficult to determine. There is also a deck for viewing beyond the Arch.

This was one of the best parts about Mackinac Island... the view from Arch Rock. You MUST make the hike up and visit it. It's not that bad of a hike, people of all ages can make it. It's not hard to get to at all. It was breathtaking and one of the prettiest views I have ever seen.

Either way it's Awesome. There is a lot to do. Bike rentals, shopping, peaceful walks, nature, no cars, just a good place to visit. Leave your car and your worries behind. Jump on the ferry and make your way up to Macinac Island, Michigan. It's the simplest of ways to live.

It's an arched rock. Not too spectacular. But nice to get a picture of. If you take the carriage ride they tell you the story behind it.

Not a destination in itself, but something you should see on horse-drawn cart tour. You could go down to the shoreline and get a different perspective.
