Must see · Water Body · Hiking Trail
Lake Erie Bluffs is nationally significant: The 600-acre Lake Erie Bluffs property will permanently protect a significant amount of wetland, meadow and mostly undeveloped lakefront habitat used by rare and common plant and animal species.

Amazingly, the property remains largely unspoiled by previous development. The mix of 40-foot high beach bluffs and open sandy and cobble beach across 9,000 feet of shoreline are the site’s dominant features. The beach area hosts trees, shrubs and small plants including the majority of the park’s rare plants.

Visitors can enjoy low-impact recreational activities such as hiking and fishing at this new park. Improvements made to enhance public use include parking lots, restrooms, and installation of gravel trails with a scenic overlooks and two grand access point to a natural beach along Lake Erie.

  • This is not your typical beach. The water comes almost all the way up to the trees. The shore mostly rocks with some sand. It is a great place to hike and collect rocks. Lots of beautiful Droid wood.
  • A quiet and beautiful walk. Not too much elevation, except on the observation tower of course. The sounds of the waves and the forest are absolutely serine.
