Reviewed September 29, 2013

Awesome views and beautiful formation. We walked for 30 minutes to get to it, but it was worth it! Favorite attraction on the island for sure.

“Awesome Arch”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Easy to access from above and below, the Arch Rock is a sight to be seen on the Island. I liked the view of the Rock from above better with water in the distance.

“Good Stop”
Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

This is a nice photo stop on Mackinac Island. We rode a carriage ride to get there. Renting a bike is the best transportation if you are up to it.

“Best view on the island according to hubby”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

I must agree it is a beautiful view. You can either walk there, ride a bike there, ride a horse or even go by carraige like we did. Mother nature knew what she was doing when this was created/carved by the wind/rain/weather. It is one of the many sites one HAS to see while on the island. Don't miss your chance of seeing this. Pretty no matter what time of day or time of year.
