Hurricane River Campground to the Au Sable Light Station

This level 3.0 mile walk takes you back in time to an isolated Lake Superior lighthouse. Exposed shipwreck remains dot the shoreline, and the quiet light station gives you a feeling of yesteryear where families lived and worked from 1874 to 1958. Guided tours of the lighthouse are provided daily in summer and a brochure is also available. Wayside exhibits interpret the historic scene. Water is available at the light station.

Hiking Tips

No matter what length, any hike is more fun if you are properly prepared. Always wear sturdy shoes. If you plan to be out an extended time, carry a snack and water, and let someone know where you are going and your expected time of return. Carry a map and compass and know how to use them. Lake Superior modifies local weather – be prepared for cool conditions and rain.

Pets

Pets are permitted only on specific trails – check the Pets brochure before you plan your hike. Bicycles are not permitted on trails. Backcountry permits are required only if you plan to camp overnight in the backcountry. Please use toilets where provided, otherwise, bury waste 4-6 inches deep and cover with mineral soil. Thank you for carrying out your trash.
