Along the shoreline of Lake Huron is the Sacred Rock and it is huge. It’s about 20 feet long and 8 feet wide and 4 feet tall out of the sand. The Native American tribes used the rock as a boundary marker to separate two tribes hunting grounds. Legend has it that the two tribes chiefs argued over the hunting ground and Kitchie Manitou, the Great Spirit, dropped the massive boulder on the two chiefs to keep the tribes from going to war. It is said that when it rains the blood from the two chiefs underneath it weeps out of the rock. The rock is about a mile north of P.H. Hoeft State Park near Rogers City in front of private cabins. You can hike along the shoreline to the rock from the state park.
besides being a historic landmark the rock has a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers mark secured to the top of it. The top of it is a little scuffed up and I can only assume the wind was pushing the ice from Lake Huron across it.
