Turnip Rock (a.k.a Point aux Barque) is situated Just off the shores of Lake Huron, about 3 kilometers north-east to Port Austin (Michigan, USA), it is a beautiful rock formation which is also (depending on the season) a tiny tidal island. Turnip Rock got it’s name from it’s turnip-like shape, the resemblance to Turnip is especially emphasized due to the trees on top of the rock’s surface. This rock formation is a result of many years of the waves erosion. The land around Turnip Rock is private property, so the only way to get to the rock is by boats/Kayaks etc.
There are kayaks to rent, updated maps and instructions at portaustinkayak.com – The trail takes about three hours to complete and is usually accessible from March till mid November.
