The water seems to change color as the minutes pass while you look through this arch. It is a beautiful view and just a bit past the fort. It is worth seeing.

My husband and I decided to explore Mackinac Island on foot while we were there. We came across Arch Rock and it was beautiful. It was a great photo opportunity for us. We got to see it from the top and bottom view and both are amazing. You should definitely go see this rock if you are visiting the island.

We went to Mackinac Island toward the end of August. It was pretty hot needless to say. We decided to rent bikes. I was exhausted by the time we got to the rock and I was less than thrilled to climb the steps to get to the top. It was very much worth the extra effort. It was absolutely gorgeous and I took some amazing pictures. I would recommend arch rock to everyone! If you leave the island without seeing it, you're truly missing out!

But for those who don't want to hike them, the site is accessible through the carriage tour.

Arch rock offers a breathtaking view of the island.

Don't stop there...if you've already climbed all the way there, there is another set of stairs just to the left of arch rock that leads to the "tranquil trail". It is very serene (it was aptly named) and quite beautiful.

Arch rock is a limestone formation a few hundred feet above the shore of Lake Huron. About a half mile from the downtown area, most tourists walk, bike or take a carriage tour to the site. Be aware that if you hike or bike you will have some a very large hill to walk up before you reach the destination! The rock is also viewable from the shore line, with a staircase of 100+ stairs to the viewing platform a the top. Pretty site, nice for photos!
