North Shore Loop Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Explore Kelleys Island by a combination of bicycle and foot to enjoy the unique natural features this charming tourist trap has to offer. Take a ferry to this Lake Erie island and head to the famous Glacial Grooves State Memorial. From there hike on the self-guided North Shore Trail to the water’s edge, where you have views of other Lake Erie islands nearby and the horizon beyond. Also check out the North Pond State Nature Preserve on a boardwalk through a wetland. Hit the East Quarry Trail and walk around Horseshoe Lake, which was created when rainwater filled this former limestone quarry.The surroundings are dotted with cedar trees, and the trail is reminiscent of a hike out west more than Ohio.

Kelleys Island is a bona fide tourist trap, but it has managed to retain its charm and has set aside several natural areas for exploration.The only public transportation to the Lake Erie Islands is ferryboat, so just getting to Kelleys Island is fun. Begin with a twenty-minute ferry ride to Kelleys and then explore the 2-by-3-mile island by a combination of bicycle and foot."
