The shoreline from Arcadia to Frankfort consists of beautiful sand beaches and steep dune bluffs that rise up to 300 feet above the lake. From the public beach in Arcadia to just south of Frankfort (Elberta), there is no public land so much of the route must be admired from the water not the shore. Still this paddle is well worth it for the lovely scenery. There is an access point using Lower Herring Lake that allows kayakers access to Lake Michigan between Arcadia and Frankfort. In all, four access locations are avail-able: one in Arcadia, one 5 miles north of Arcadia via Lower Herring Lake, the public beach at the Frankfort harbor, and Point Betsie, 4 miles north of Frankfort. A trip to Point Betsie to visit the historic Point Betsie Lighthouse is worthwhile.
