I don’t usually like paved trails but this one was nice. We were the only ones up here for the first 15 mins. Come early!

Easy and quick stroll through the woods along a nature trail and ending at a nice platform overlooking a rock formation. The viewing platforms were fairly crowded.

Nature tripsFeeGreat!

This really is a beautiful sight to see. The trail itself isn’t anything fantastic. You can take a paved road and walk 207 (206?) stairs to the top of the trail to see Arch Rock. That’s what makes it special. Mackinac Island has several other forest trails that are quite enjoyable as well.

Nice paved path once you hike up the hill by the Governor’s residence and the fort. Look out for the horse poop as parts of this trail are shared with the carriage tours. The views from Arch Rock are breathtaking! My only complaint has nothing to do with the trail. Rather, Mackinac Island was packed like I’ve never seen it before. It made me horribly uncomfortable. Many people were not following COVID protocols and lacked masks. This was really disappointing.

Walked the perimeter “road” and then up the stairs. Great vista. Recommend going at dusk to avoid crowds

Great walk, very scenic and peaceful! Found a couple cool side trails that were a little more technical and adventurous! Great day in a great park!

First to Review

A must see natural feature of Mackinac Island. There are two routes to the Arch - you can follow the perimeter of the Island east of downtown along the paved road then climb the stairs to the top, or follow the recorded trail to the top of the Arch. The views from under and the top of the Arch are both worth the hike!
