Public Trails

Extending from St. Ignace to Drummond Island, and North to Pickford, the North Huron Birding Trail encompasses the byway and beyond, with excellent bird-watching sites marked throughout the region. Waterfowl including Loons and Cranes and raptors like the Snowy Owl find well-preserved habitat along the byway. Eastern Upper Peninsula Regional Planning & Development Commission, along with many partners, recently completed mapping all Great Lakes water trails in the region. The North Huron Shoreline is divided into multiple sections, the Les Cheneaux and Island Explorer (Drummond Island) sections pre-date the completion of the regional trails. From broad sandy beaches, to islandprotected alcoves, the north shore of Lake Huron provides a varied paddling experience with endless potential for a variety of trips.
