This is my favorite landmark. I can stand in front of the arch rock and only imagine the history of an excellent vantage point for defending the island. You can see other shorelines and the beautiful water below.

It's an easy hike or bike ride back to Arch Rock once you get up the hill past the Grand Hotel. The arch has been repaired numerous times over the years but you have to look close to see the cement. They matched the color well. There is a steel walkway jutting out past the rock giving you the best view of the back of the island as well as all the colors of the water.

Took a lovely walk in the rain to arch rock. Good photo place overlooking Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. Trails are well marked.

As the title says this is a fairly unique feature for this area. We are usually riding our bikes when we stop and take some pictures. Going to have to venture to the top one of these days.
