Need to Know

In nice weather people are able to get to Little Presque Isle, but the current between Little Presque Point and the Isle can be very dangerous and change quickly. The currents combined with energy-sapping cold water have resulted in a number of deaths. Be careful!

Description

A large gravel parking area allows access to this trail. A self-registration kiosk at the east end of the parking lot allows you to register and pay the fee when applicable. The first half of the trail is an old forest road so it's wide, flat, and super easy. You'll pass the NCT trail and then enter the dunes area. You'll come to an area with a number of warnings about the dangerous currents and flotation devices to use in an emergency. A clear route drops down to the beach at the point. A big step down is required and the sand is deep here.
