An excellent location for a walk. The lake level is very high so most of the trail is underwater. It is still possible to do a loop to the point and back.

The lake water level was pretty high and had washed out part of the trail.

Tail overgrown and washed out in many places. Lots of poison ivy.

An awesome place during the second and third weeks of May for birding. Warblers and migrants everywhere and some nice rarities like Little Gull and large shorebirds. The trails are flat and broad and easy to follow.

No clue how the trail is as half the place allows dogs and half doesn't, the light house is great though and we saw a super cute skunk <3

Mid July. Hiked trail just after tour of the lighthouse ( cool and interesting by the way), the trail was easy for most of it but there was one section that was so overgrown that I felt I needed a machete to get through. Some areas were washed out. The views of the lake were beautiful however. Did not see much wild life other than a few species of frogs and birds. Decent trip.

Need to make another trip out here soon; it's been ages since we've been hiking up there near Tawas Point and the lighthouse! This was where I won a couple fishing trophies as a kid and my mom sang a couple concerts here (among other places around Tawas). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We just hiked the rough trails down the tip. Nice trail, a bit confusing and waterlogged at times. Great views back toward the mainland. This is a nice little food stand where the pavement ends and the trail begins. The lighthouse is also a delight. Swimming a possibility; the beaches are small but more than adequate.
