Our carriage ride stopped here. The arch is pretty amazing. Great walkways around it so it is easy to see.

The hike up the steps is well worth the view! The whole island is gorgeous, but Arch Rock is a must see!

If I didn't know I was in Michigan, you could easily imagine this formation and back drop being in the Med or Caribbean.

Arch Rock is deteriorating away. They are not sure how much longer it will be there, so see it soon.

We took a break from biking to climb the 200+ steps to see Arch Rock up close. The steps were in very good shape, with spots along the way to stop and rest if needed. The view was definitely worth the climb! Fun pit stop while biking around the island.
