Tombolo Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Take a turn across two islands—Presque and Stockton—which became one over the centuries due to the wear and tear of Lake Superior’s waves. A boardwalk crosses a notable dune and bog ecosystem and leads to a splendid beach walk that may include a bit of wading.
Ask most visitors to the Apostle Islands how the lake shapes the shoreline and they would point to the sea caves. Those sandstone caverns are a clear example of waves, ice, and time nibbling away at rock with grains of sand washing away. Waterborne sand, perhaps even the same grains, is also an element in the landscape of this hike. Here, however, the process adds to the shoreline, forming sandbars that mature into vegetated dunes as the lake recedes."
