Hiking the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore | Michigan
A highlight of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is spectacular at any time of year, with dramatically eroded multicolored sandstone cliffs rising from the blue-green waters of Lake Superior. It takes on an extra layer of beauty during peak fall foliage season, which typically runs from late September until mid-October. Day hikers can enjoy 100 miles of trails to viewpoints, waterfalls, beaches, and the picturesque Au Sable Lighthouse. For longer treks, the North Country National Scenic Trail passes through the park, 15 miles of it atop the cliffs.
For a different perspective on the gorgeous coastline, take to the water on a sightseeing cruise or kayaking tour. Independent paddling is permitted but requires experience and preparation, as conditions on Lake Superior are notoriously changeable.
