This trail (busy during peak times of the year) is among the most popular in the area. For fit people, it's practically perfect. The trail is steep and rugged in a few places, with steps and steep inclines. But the payback for the effort is some of the nicest scenery and ambiance in the central section of Huron County. For me (and for most others) the highlight is the iron truss pedestrian bridge over the Bayfield river, and its connecting elevated boardwalk system. Nature lovers will appreciate the large variety of environments, which include mature closed-canopy maple-beach forest, cool, deeply shaded ravines with cedar and hemlock, marshland, fenland, the remains of an old homestead, a pine plantation, and an old pasture field slowly becoming forest. The trail is great for birds, with lots of food, cover, and a large variety of habitats.
