Checked out Presque Isle State Park for a running destination! Thirteen miles of FLAT scenic paved trail if you run out and back, restrooms are plentiful and depending on the time of the year there are things to do in the area for everyone, swimming, biking, water park or the Tom Ridge Environmental Center. This is a must do trip!

We were passing through the area and stopped at Presque Isle State Park. Spent two hours there and would have liked to spend more time. The park is very large and scenic views of Lake Erie, and Erie PA. There are two lighthouses. Go down the road that says Coast Guard and you will see some very quaint boathouses in... More

If you like nature and taking photographs, this is a great drive. There are three interesting lighthouses, an area with boat houses and many sandy beaches.

The Sunsets were awesome! The Park drives all the way around so you can see the beach and the bay side. Beach was very nice.

My wife and I spent 2 days riding the bide trail at Presque State Park. The trail was well paved and it's a flat trail,we had a great time.

Presque Isle has something for everyone. Beaches, volleyball, biking, hiking, canoeing, ice fishing in the winter :>P. Sunsets on beach 10 are the best part of the park.

We visited in the fall, which was beautiful! Still warm enough for biking and walking the trails. Some stores and eateries were closed around the park, but there is still plenty to do and see close by.

The beaches are great and you feel you are in the ocean. There are a lot of landmarks to visit in the park. Don't miss the Tom Ridge center near the park entry.

So glad that I was able to visit this beautiful piece of beach several times over the years. Is a great alternative to driving all the way to the ocean to feel like you're actually at the beach. 7 miles of pristine beaches with woods and some history to go along with it. Depending on which beach you go to... More
