Spray Falls - Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Michigan

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore
near Munising, MI

A highlight of the Pictured Rocks boat cruise is a trip out to Spray Falls, where water cascades off the cliff straight into Lake Superior. You can also see these falls after miles of hiking along the lakeshore trail, but its easiest to see from the boat, which provides a better vantage point. Additional highlights of the cruise include the Grand Island East Channel Lighthouse, seen below:

The falls in the Pictured Rocks area are one of the reasons I love traveling there, but seeing the cliffs up close is also breathtaking. An occasional bald eagles sighting may also be a highlight of the trip for some. Not every cruise of the cliffs goes all the way out to Spray Falls so be sure to check the latest schedule and make sure you go at the right time.
Getting there: The Pictured Rocks Boat Cruise docks are located in Munising, on Elm Ave by the city pier. If you're ambitious enough to attempt the hike, catch the Lakeshore Trail at the Little Beaver Lake campground.

Overall: Great
Hike: Moderate
