The Bridge to Bay Trail extends from the village of Lake Port on Lake Huron south to Algonac on the St. Clair River; however, only about 37.5 miles of the 54 planned miles are completed as of early 2012. The trail is being constructed in segments, with some on-road bike lanes connecting the disjointed trail in sections. The longest contiguous sections lie south of Port Huron to Marysville and between St. Clair and Marine City.
Following closely to shores of Lake Huron and the west bank of the St. Clair River, the trail surface is a mix of boardwalks, asphalt paths, rail-trails and safety paths. Portions parallel state highways and county roads, while others pass among woodlands and wetlands.
The trail links neighborhoods, state and local parks, beaches, museums, lighthouses, commercial districts, schools and government centers.
Parking and Trail Access
