My go to for a quick hike when I'm not up for a drive out of Erie. Gets a bit muddy in spots, but well maintained. Beautiful views of the lake and inland lagoons and great for spotting animals.

This trail is rather short, only about a mile, not long enough for a serious hike. It is best to go in winter, the actual point is a protected wildlife (gull) refuge and is only allowed to be accessed during winter months when the birds are migrated south. The point is very neat, a long sandy area with a wooden lookout. If you venture out in winter, watch for crunchy ice with puddles underneath, or you'll be walking back in wet shoes.

This is a trail on Presque Isle, mostly used for birding. Lots of migratory birds and endangered. Everyone's watching what the piping polvers will do! :) For the "crowds" option on here it all depends on how many people are birding that day...personally I've only seen between 1 and 3 people when I walk it, if anyone.
