Beautiful views, nice bike paths, wildlife

We were able to bike around the Isle and stop at some nice look out points. We rode past deer and raccoon. We enjoyed an ice cream cone when we were done at the ice cream stand.

This town's park is a true gem for the area. Tourists and locals flock to it in good weather, and probably in bad, too, with its beautiful views overlooking Lake Superior. Observing the red cliffs is breathtaking. Watching the waves break over and on the small rocky islands offshore is awesome. A lot of the red cliffs have a barrier... More

Lots of great views. Cool to watch the "lakers" (huge cargo ships) pull in and out of the ore dock. Lots of wildlife to see. The park is easy to get around; hike, bike or drive. Well worth a visit.

We drove the entire circle drive on a Sunday morning. Be sure to check the hours when you can drive the route as there are some hours when motorized vehicle traffic is prohibited. There are numerous sites where you can park, get out and take pictures. There is a spot for sunset viewing which is spectacular. Mis way around the... More

If you like to walk this or drive around the whole island watch were other cars go and park and get out and take a look so much to see on such a cool Island. There is a light house and a cliff where the college kids dive off into Lake superior BURR and it's cold. Plenty of walking paths... More

I loved going here. You are able to get out and go to black rocks, dive off some of the rocks *with school events and other events*, see lots of wildlife, hold weddings here, even have fun at the beach. There is so much beauty here. I lived here and visited here many a times years ago. There is a... More

We drove the loop in a short amount of time - very pretty views of the Lake from here. Worth the drive!

We were in town for a wedding so I had to come visit Presque Isle again as I hadn't been here in years. Beautiful views of the lake with many bluffs and rock formations. No admission fee. A nice roadway makes for a pleasant drive if you choose. The road is closed to cars most days including weekend mornings, Tuesday... More

One tip, plan ahead of you plan on driving around, as they close the drove around the park certain times. Views at sunset point were stunning. Would love to try the trails when we have more time.

Tiny little beach where you get a great view of the lake and the birds. Nice place for a quick picnic.
