THE LAKE HURON TRAIL... SHELTERED BAYS AND ANCIENT PATHS...

is95-1269963560-80892.jpeg
Explore the Trails Of The Great Waters

12,000 years ago, the ancient paths of The Great Waters were first traveled by the wildlife that followed the retreating glaciers north.

Lake Huron was, and still is, a gathering place: where the waters of Lake Michigan and Lake Superior flow together, where the ancient migratory flyways funnel birds in the fall and spring, and where centuries of human settlement converged on the eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

Lake Huron's many islands and sheltered bays offer a sense of intimacy unlike any of the other lakeshores.

Historic towns, forts, and villages dot the edge of Lake Huron. The area’s rich maritime history can be seen in the historic rock-crib docks, boathouses and commercial waterfronts that adjoin miles of pristine lakeshore.

Gather your family and friends and discover the wonders of the Lake Huron Trail.
