Pictured Rocks is a 7.4 mile out and back trail located near Munising, Michigan that offers scenic views and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is best used from May until October.
Not physically demanding. Amazing views (like everywhere up there)!
Did this trail Memorial Day 2015. Simply amazing! Not physically difficult. Definitely plan your trip. Book early so you can select the sites you want. Took a shuttle from Munising to Grand Marais. Super nice people. Started at Grand Marais with mostly wooded hike. Sable Dunes is spectacular. Stayed first night at Sable East. Awesome views. Easy access to water. Tough 12+ mile hike second day. Hike along the water is very beautiful. Interior hike was a bit blah following the water and cliff views. Second night was at Beaver Creek. More awesome views and cool sites. Bear boxes at both sites. Hike day three from Beaver Creek to Chapel Beach was amazing yet again. Had to depart early due to lightning approaching so hiked out to parking lot near Chapel parking lot. BEWARE: ZERO CELL COVERAGE! Hitched a ride to main road and shuttle picked up at corner store. Overall an incredible experience! We apparently did the ugliest part first. If that section was less desirable, can't imagine the rest!

Completed Miners Castle to beach. Amazing water, very clean. Great places to cliff jump!
Did this hike in segments, nice place
Beautiful! Words can't describe the beauty!
Went on a 5 day/30 mile hike/camping trip and was stunned by how nice it was. Beautiful view and a good challenge. Started at Log Slide and ended at Minor's Castle
beautiful picturesque hike
We have hiked the entire Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore trail in several day hikes (40 miles + connection to trailheads). It is one of the most varied, spectacular trails you will encounter. Waterfalls, hidden coves, rock formations, inland lakes, Lake Superior shoreline. None of the trail is that difficult...some up and down but mostly along the shoreline.
Hiked out to the rocks and saw amazing waterfalls. Incredible hike to secluded beach.
We took the boat tour (late afternoon) out of Munising, and it is awesome! You have great views of the coastline; something you can't get from shore. A must see if you're in the UP.
