Horseshoe Harbor Professional Review and Guide

"A certain aura, a whiff of raw fury, hangs on the shoreline here. Even on a benign summer day, the stark reefs of eroded conglomerate rock seem to speak of the epic storms of November; wind and waves sending spray sky high, and a timeless clash between the lake and ancient bedrock. The Upper Peninsula and the Keweenaw have other notable wave-washed shores. This one though, with its exposed location and striking rock architecture, is a worthy contender for ranking as an icon.

While the U.P. and the Keweenaw have other notable wave-washed shores, this one, with its exposed location and striking rock architecture, is a worthy contender for ranking as an icon. Begin your visit by walking north on a broad and rocky trail that starts opposite the trailhead’s parking pullouts. After a woodsy 0.3 mile, the trail emerges onto a rock cobble beach, the Lake Superior shore."
