Walk the same rough-poured sidewalk that the old lighthouse keeper walked when he went from his home in the Presque Isle Lighthouse to his boat at the US Lighthouse Service boathouse on Misery Bay. Along the way, you’ll pass a marsh with thriving vegetation and vernal ponds. There’s a reason more than 4 million people visit Presque Isle every year. The phrase “something for everybody” has been bandied around, and though it’s worn thin from overuse, nothing could be truer. There really is something for everyone, whether you’re an outdoor lover, a history buff , a natural history student, a birder, or, of course, a hiker. Thirteen miles of roads transport visitors from one end of this 3,200-acre park to the other.
