“hike it out!”

There are two ways to reach Peninsula Point: you can drive to it or hike in. If you’re thinking about driving, be advised that the U.S. Forest Service road for the final mile to the nineteenth-century lighthouse is a narrow, winding, and very bumpy one-lane road not recommended for recreational vehicles more than 16 feet long or 8 feet high. The 1.5-mile path extends from the RV parking lot to a picnic area at the end of the Stonington Peninsula that includes Peninsula Point Lighthouse. The trail was built by the Boy Scouts in 1988, who also installed a number of interpretive displays. The plaques cover topics ranging from how to find trilobite fossils, to why the point is such a haven for birders, to what the effects of Lake Michigan’s high water in 1986 and 1987 were on the shoreline. When combined with a return walk on the Forest Service road, the trail makes for a 2.5-mile loop. Carry in lunch, and you can spend the better part of the afternoon at this scenic spot along Lake Michigan.
