P. H. Hoeft State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The drive along the Lake Huron coastline is quite scenic, and this state park makes a good stopping point on that journey. The core of the 300-acre park, one of Michi- gan’s original 14 state parks, came from a man whose fortune was made cutting down trees. Lumber baron Paul H. Hoeft gave the land to Michigan in 1922. The picnic shelter we see today was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. Today the park offers a mile of sandy lakeshore that draws day-trippers and campers. The sites are nicely shaded, and a small network of trails keeps hikers busy. The Huron Sunrise Trail, which connects Rogers City to the world’s larg- est open-pit limestone mine, runs right past the park. This means bikers can make the 4-mile trip into town. An actual 1929 Sears and Roebuck mail-order cabin is on-site and can be rented."
