Easy trail with a paved very narrow path about 2 feet wide. It is currently very overgrown and buggy, definitely wear a insect repellent. There are a few areas on the trail that are like sink holes next to the paved trail, if I hadn't looked down I'd have stepped right in, not sure how deep these go. The trail leads to a historic lighthouse and beaches. Trail is dog friendly for leashed pets.

An incredible find on Presque Isle. It was literally a sidewalk in the middle of a marsh. Fantastic views. Super easy. Even saw a turtle in the middle of the path!

This can be a nice, short stand alone trail or you can make it part of a larger loop to include the Perry Monument and the beaches if you wanted to. This trail has a paved (narrow) sidewalk from Misery Bay side to the Lighthouse on the lake side. It does get wet in places, but this is easily traversed. In late June and July there are scads of flies on this trail, and Presque Isle in general is known for a lot of ticks so use repellant. Bicycles are not allowed on this trail.
During winter, can be used as XC Skiing trail
