Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore located on the shore of Lake Superior in Michigan was established in 1966. Known for its colorful sandstone cliffs, (similar to that of the Grand Canyon), it covers over 73,000 acres including 42 miles along the water’s edge. The naturally sculpted sandstone shorelines include shallow caves, archways, cliffs, and waterfalls. Well known areas of interest in the park visitors may find are Munising Falls, Miners River, Chapel Falls/Rock, Shipwrecks, and Grand Sable Dunes just to name a few. Popular methods of exploring the park include snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing in the winter and hiking, camping and sea kayaking in warmer weather.
