Great place to hike, picnic, or just drive through to enjoy the views of Lake Superior. Plenty of places to pull off the road to hike. View from Sunset Point, at sunset, were amazing.

This is a lovely park with great views. Driving through at sunset was beautiful and relaxing. It's a very nice, well kept up area with times set up for walkers, people on bikes, and cars to use the island. Very nice.
