Established in 1966 as our first national lakeshore, Michigan’s Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is a narrow strip
of a park that hugs the Lake Superior coast for more than 40 miles. The shoreline consists of 200 foot high colorful
sandstone cliffs, numerous beaches, and 300 foot tall sand dunes. The shoreline is bordered by boreal and eastern
hardwood forests with numerous waterfalls, streams, and lakes. There is abundant wildlife, including black bears,
deer, and porcupine, with bald eagles and peregrine falcons dotting the skies.
