The best trail of several located in East Harbor State Park. Trail is surfaced with grass, rocks, and in some areas just dirt. Minimal overhead canopy but at certain times of the day could offer some shade. Wildlife included deer, raccoons, canadian geese, a variety of ducks and birds along with plenty of butterflies. The way back was muddy, so it offered a bit more of an adventure as hundreds of frogs were crossing our path. Good view of the lake and marsh lands. Perfect for a leisure stroll in nature.

Nice trail and boardwalks. Several opportunities to walk and see the water. Trails were severely flooded.

Well kept trail. Unexpectedly sandy in places. Beautiful beach and view of Lake Erie grace the northern half of the loop. However, chased by a basset hound... people, please keep your dogs on leashes, or train them otherwise. All in all, great 3 mile jog.

nice variety of paths from beginner to intermediate. plenty of maps and location tags to keep you on trail. Getting hot? Follow the signs to lakefront walking to cool down. Great.

Awesome trail. A little confusing to follow, but once you understand the layout you can navigate it. Several sceneries, and includes a nice beach walk!

Would be good for bird watchers, saw several varieties. But trail itself was not very appealing. Spray for mosquito's it is a wetland.
