We visited in September and were disappointed that the restrooms were locked up and everything was closed up. It's less than 300 ft from the parking lot to the overlook and even enjoyable to see the views on a rainy day. Beautiful scenery.

Well worth a visit to see Miner's Castle on foot. We saw it from the boat a few months ago and it was just as beautiful from the path. Steps are well-kept and easily negotiable with resting points along the way. At sunset, the colors...More

After we looked over the edge and gasp at the beauty...we just stayed on the overlook to enjoy watching other people's reactions when they looked over for the first time. It reminded us of the gasps when we visited the Grand Canyon! OH MY -...More

Pictured Rocks, the islands are awesome but very remote. Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is drivable, short hikes beautiful and well worth the trip!
