Located on the eastern side of Mackinac Island, a popular tourist destination that attracts tens of thousands of visitors every summer, Arch Rock is one of its most popular attractions. It’s a shame that such an attractive arch should have such a prosaic name. The arch can be viewed from behind and wonderfully frames the waters of Lake Michigan or from below on the Lake Shore Road.

According to an Indian legend the arch was formed by giant fairies as a gateway to the island.

It has a span of 50 ft and a height of about 137 ft.
