This area is noted for large flocks of waterfowl, eagles, osprey, various herons and egrets. In moderate wind and wave conditions this trail is somewhat sheltered and appropriate for water craft with adequate flotation and intermediate experience. Conditions on Lake Erie can change rapidly, but there are many places to pull off the water. Boat Launches are available at the North end of Erie Metro Park and Pointe Mouillee Road. In between there is the Cove Point Picnic area and Erie Metro Park Marina.
