Au Sable LighthouseGrand Marais, MI (near), Picture Rocks National Lakeshore, Lake SuperiorScenic, shipwrecks, nature, landscapePer Wayne Gammel: It's not the most highly visited lighthouse as you have to walk 2 miles to get there, but it's an easy hike on a level trail through the woods or you can also walk along the beach and view all the old shipwrecks.

This part of the lake is often referred to as the "shipwreck graveyard" due to the rocky shallow reef a short distance offshore and the area's long history of notoriously bad storms. The lighthouse is still in service today but it uses modern solar powered LED lights to guide passing ships away from danger.
