Nice drive into the park. There are a couple of ports potty’s at the parking area. We hiked the trail which wasn’t really marked but you can see where others have walked. We saw several people turn around because of the lack of a trail map or markings. We also eventually turned around. You are on the top of the bluffs so watch out if you have little kids as you get close to the edge a few times. Views are nice in a few spots.

This is a beautiful place with majestic views on what seemed like unofficial trails, although we did find a bench at the top. You can climb up through the cedars over roots, or find a path to climb down to the water. Not many people here the first Sunday in June. Just be warned, the path up is bordered by perilous drop offs onto the rocky beach below… super dangerous for little kids who don’t know to stay away from the edge. We were very glad to be traveling just the two of us, or we would have left to find a safer option!

We were looking for short trails and this one caught our eye. We may have passed on it if not for a fellow hiker just leaving the trail. He gave us some information--VERY many roots--not muddy, can turn back when ever. No map on info board.
True to his description, a lot of roots but not much up/down and a nice bench to sit and enjoy this view. We were happy hikers when back to the car:)

This park gave us a unique hiking experience. The trail is all roots. Wear a sturdy shoe, not flip flops .

This was one of the more interesting hikes I landed up doing in flip flops. Just got done swimming at a beach so thought, why not? Talk about roots! Next time I'll wear hiking boots.

No crowds. Great walks through cedar forests on undeveloped trails. Keep going and the better the views get. We enjoyed going here, away from the more traveled and touristy areas. Seems a few other people were here when we arrived but very few ventured beyond the first few steps on to the trail as it looks like it doesn't go anywhere. Just keep winding your way through the cedars and you'll come to the top where the view is nice and there's a bench waiting for you to sit on.

We had a tough time finding trails but when we did reach a clearing the view was spectacular. We look forward to returning

Quiet. Not crowded. Kind of a hard steep trail but so worth it for the views. There’s a longer trail but we only walked out to the rock overlooking the water. ❤️

This is pretty much where the Door County ends, and with it State of Wisconsin. There is Washington Island still to the side, plus smaller islands, but the feeling here is just that - you ran out of land to go on, and this is it. The views are breathtaking. The only downside is - this is very rustic, and it's hard to get around in the absence of trails, except the foot path that goes along the bluff (unofficial trail?). Perhaps it's better to keep it that way. One other thing - few years ago when the lake levels were low, there was a nice rocky beach where people made towers out of rocks strewn around. Last time I have been there, there was nothing left of it, and the waters of Lake Michigan were lapping at the shoreline tree's lower trunks.

We hiked this rustic bluff trail over Labor Day weekend. There isn’t really a trail map to follow so you’re on your own and we occasionally checked our GPS to see how far we’d hiked. We just followed what appears to be a foot path that eventually winds down through the woods and back to the parking area. Keep small children close when hiking up along the bluff. The views of the bay from up top are gorgeous. There are port a potties but no other services. Easy to find off of Hwy 42 and Garrett’s Bay Rd.
