If you take the scenic carriage ride around the island, you will see this site and be allowed to stand in front of the arch and take pictures. There is a staircase beside it to climb and better view the Lake.
A truly perfect example of Pure Michigan. It was absolutely incredible with the view over the entire lake. Take a carriage tour here or rent bikes to ride! We saw this on our carriage tour which was a great experience.
When I went there with my brother and wife this past September, it was a night walk. We did have flashlights so we could see the arch, but obviously we couldnt see out any distance on the lake. Since I am easily frightened, it was a slightly spooky walk for me. All the haunted stories about the island prior probably...
It was a nice hike to get there but once we got there everyone was like... wow that's a hole in a rock lol... the view from the stairs was nice... next time I would skip this or take a bike or carriage ride there
