MichiganTrailMaps.com says, "The park’s lone trail, while short, is a scenic and very interesting hike, especially if you are a birder. The trail is mainly a sandy path that connects a few stretches of boardwalk along the Tawas Bay and Lake Huron sides of the spit. Its most obvious feature is neither birds nor beaches but the historic Tawas Point Lighthouse that can be seen from different angles throughout much of the walk." Click here for trail maps!
