Thomas Rock Scenic Overlook reviews
Driving back-road 505 loop to Thomas Rock Scenic Overlook is a must do. It is a hidden gem but you can enjoy easily as it is only 1 hr drive from Marquette. Easily accessible from the parking lot... more »
This is an easy walk up to the top with a very scenic view of the lake and the surrounding areas. The trail is wide and not steep at all and fairly short. more »
This little overlook is such a pleasant place to visit anytime we're out near Big Bay. The wall isn't long but there's plenty to see on the way up. The little information posts are cleverly set up and quite compact/concise. Best of all, you can get to the top without a ton of effort. Even a wheelchair could make it up without much issue. And the view is fantastic. The two lakes in front of you and that giant radio tower off to the right. It's a wonderful place to just sit and stare. It's gorgeous in the fall when the leaves change. And there's a nice little picnic area at the base in the parking lot. A beautiful drive and a fantastic view.
Absolutely beautiful. A must do while in the area. Very well groomed and very short walk. Amazing views. Bring a good book, small lunch and just relax at the top.
