Completely overgrown. Had to turn around. Didn’t mind the muddiness, but there was little to no trail direction to follow.

A nice trail that cuts through Presque Isle. Personally I did not enjoy walking through the sand and there were sections of overgrown tall grass. At the time it was also extremely muggy and wet which didn’t help the experience. Also, beware of bugs! Overall a good short hike depending on conditions!
