A 1-milelong trail shows historical and geographical features along Big Bay de Noc. The trail follows the shoreline ridges marking ancient lake levels. Limestone fossils are evident along the shorelines. The trail ends at the 1865 Peninsula Point Lighthouse. 19 miles south of Rapid River on County 513.


From Rapid River drive 2.4 miles east on US-2 to County Road 513. Turn right (southeast) on CR 513 and drive 17 miles to the RV parking lot. Please not that the last 0.8 mile of the road to the lighthouse (south of the RV parking lot) is a very narrow winding road and is not recommended for RVs or vehicles pulling trailers.
