The stunning sandstone cliffs, numerous trails and plentiful opportunities to canoe and kayak are what draw travelers to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan. The lakeshore hugs the coast of Lake Superior — the largest, deepest and most pristine of all the Great Lakes — for more than 60 kilometers and boasts hiking, camping, boating and many other opportunities to get outside.

In the spring, the hiking trails are carpeted with colorful wildflowers indicating the approaching warm, sunny days of summer. Come autumn, the park dazzles with orange, red and yellow foliage. And in the colder months, snow blankets the landscape, transforming the lakeshore into a bright winter wonderland. No matter what time of year you visit, you’re bound to encounter a beautiful scene.
