A quick ferry ride across the channel from Munising. Took the bus tour to get an overview of the island and got an interesting history lesson with it. Talked with some cyclers who seemed to really enjoy their bike tour as well. Rugged terrain , beautiful woods and a couple of sand beaches.
We spent the day enjoying a bike ride around the island. The views were fantastic and the beaches were beautiful. We essentially had the island to ourselves as there were very view hikers and other cyclists who travel beyond the immediate area of the dock.
We had decided to come to the UP MI for a fall vacation to see another side of Lake Superior other than the Duluth, MN side. Though it has been a real warm year and the colors have not quite turned yet the area and it's history was amazing. We took the Grand Island 3 1/2 tour. Eric was our... 更多

My partner and I spent several nights here around Labor Day. What a great place to go backpacking!

You can also do bus tours around the southern part if you want to just come from the... 更多

Not readily accessible but there are tour boats that will provide a nice view of parts of the shoreline - Pictured Rocks Tour & Shipwreck Tour. I was able to transit the west, south and east shores by private boat on several occasions and it was a very pleasant experience. The Shipwreck Tour will take you right into Murray Bay... 更多
My wife and I biked the outer rim of grand isle. It was terrible. But, it could be awesome. I think you need to know what your in for. This is a tough, grueling uphill, through the mountains. If you love to trail ride, and want to challange yourself then it will be awesome. But if you are hoping for... 更多
