On the trail:

Westbound: Although overall the trail is heading west, this segment is mostly northbound as it picks up from the intersection of the Wetmore Landing parking area trail and hugs the shoreline of Lake Superior through beautiful pines and hardwoods with views of the lake that are spectacular. You arrive at Little Presque Isle Point that has a handicap accessible viewing pad before taking that trail back to the parking area.

Eastbound: Although overall the trail is heading east, this segment is mostly southbound as it takes off from Little Presque Isle Point that is accessed via a handicap accessible trail from the parking lot. At the intersection with the NCNST, the handicap accessible trail proceeds towards the point where it ends with a viewing area of Little Presque Isle. Turn right at the intersection and follow the NCNST as it traverses rocks and goes in and out of the woods as it hugs the Lake Superior shoreline, giving excellent views of the lake and the shore. This segment ends at the Wetmore Landing parking area trail.
