Route
“Miles of deserted beach along Lake Huron. Wooded hiking trails. Amazing star gazing on a dark, clear night. Canoeing along the lake shore on a calm morning or evening is amazing. I recommend going to this spot when wind is blowing from the east or northeast as the flies can be difficult on without the wind. Well worth a visit, if the wind is right.”
