Turnip Rock is a small geological formation in Michigan. It is a stack located in Lake Huron, in shallow water a few meters offshore, near the rock called the Thumbnail which is the extreme tip of Pointe Aux Barques, a small peninsula in Pointe Aux Barques Township which in turn is the extreme tip of The Thumb, a large peninsula comprising several counties in eastern Michigan.
A trip to a place that looks like a giant turnip in the lake huron of Michigan, which looks like a downscaled island, becomes a whole experience with kayaking in the shallow waters of the lake huron.
The trip consists of a 7 mile out-and-back trip via the Point aux Barques trail. The shallow waters surrounding Turnip Rock allow you to get out and enjoy the area as well as snap a few photos while you are there. Be sure to wear suitable footwear if you are going to exit the kayak as the rocks are slippery.
The gigantic stone developed its signature look after millennium of being worn away by waves thumping across its bow. After being separated from the mainland in prehistoric times, Turnip Rock is an isl and inhabited by some trees and very little else.
Turnip Rock has been severely undercut by wave action, so that its top has a significantly larger cross-section than its base.
It is a private property so you can go there, Kayak for a while, meet other Kayakers, take photographs and leave, it’s prohibited to stay there, camp and party.
The view is beautiful though.
You can’t really appreciate the beauty of this place just by looking at your backlit window to nature, that’s why this place has become travel enthusiasts’ hotspot.
Imagine paddling 3.5 miles just to witness this beauty.
