This short trek is nice at the end of a hiking day, as it takes you cliffside for a sunset vista. Central to this 155-acre county park is Door Bluff, also referred to as Deathdoor Bluff for its view out toward the strait between the islands and the Door County peninsula’s end, Porte des Morts or Death’s Door. But the vista from the trail looks out at Green Bay to the west, making it a classic place to be at sunset. Better yet, the short walk back to the trailhead makes lingering to the end of the show, and a twilight retreat, reasonable. The park is undeveloped and notable for its rocky cliff s as well as an unusual stand of old white cedars.
