The nature area was created in 2007, and further expanded in 2010 and 2016 for a current total of 131 acres under protection. Funding for this project was obtained from multiple sources, including the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service's National Coastal Wetlands Conservation program and several partners who helped provide local match, including the original family that sold the core property to KLT at bargain sale.
Visitors can enjoy the beautiful sandy beaches and wonderful trails found at Lightfoot Bay free of charge year-round. An access drive leads off of Pinery Cemetery Road down to the parking area. Hiking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing are encouraged on the trails that traverse the landscape. However, motorized use of the nature area is prohibited.
Note: Not all sections of each trail are approved for every activity listed for the trail as a whole. Please click on individual trail sections to see approved activities for that section.
