Trek above and below Door County’s highest bluff on this fine shoreline ramble with views of Lake Michigan on one side and 150-foot dolomite cliffs rising above you on the other.The final stretch passes along the bluff top through hardwood forest. Peninsula State Park’s Eagle Bluff Trail is a small package with a large impact. In its 2.1-mile length, it loops above and below the cliff s of Door County’s highest bluff and samples the shoreline of Eagle Harbor. For a finale, it strolls through charming grassy glens in a beech–maple forest with birch trees scattered throughout. Start your hike at the signed trailhead at the north end of the Eagle Bluff parking area.
