This is a drive from Port Huron to Tawas City, through small harbor towns, pretty roadside parks, and quaint villages with Victorian homes and antique shops. This 143-mile drive is unremarkable in terms of natural wonders, but it does offer the adventure of going from town-to-town along what was once an Indian foot path. Part of the Lake Huron Circle Tour, this drive follows the eastern coast of Michigan, next to Lake Huron. The drive begins in the town of Port Huron, which is located in St. Clair County. The St. Clair River, which links the upper and lower Great Lakes, runs through Port Huron. This waterway played an important part in the development of the area. Special attractions: Blue Water Bridge, Tawas Point Lighthouse, and Tawas Point Beach.

The trail started off in port huron.. Very busy city, then slowly started getting a little more rustic. In the small towns i would turn and go down by the water and walk out on the piers that are out there. There are a bunch of road side parks. On the way up the eastern side of the thumb it was very nice, but the western side of the thumb was long and pretty boring because you dont see much at all. I didnt end up doing the entire trip to tawas city because i started at 1pm and it was 9pm by the time i got to bay city so i cut the trip short.
