The trail is nice and easy to navigate from downtown Bayfield. It’s not challenging and it’s not all that scenic when compared to the hikes around the sea caves - but it is a nice trek if you’re looking for something quick and easy.

This path is well maintained and welcomes pedestrians, bikers, stroller, and pets. We walked it back and forth to town and went on longer walks in the evening with our dog. It is w wonderful addition to Bayfield's attractiveness.

We stayed at the Seagull Resort. We enjoyed taking this nice shaded trail along Lake Superior to Bayfield.

This is a pretty flat walking or biking trail on an old railroad track very near downtown Bayfield. We enjoyed early morning walks, not so much for the scenery, but an easy trail for exercise.

My B&B recommended this trail for running and it was a tranquil crushed stoned with good footing run. The trailhead is at the bottom of 3rd by the water. Shady and a view good vistas of the island.
