Third, we have Myers beach sea caves.
Providing views of forests, Lake Superior, and the sea caves, the Lakeshore Myers Beach Trail is a favorite. This trail might not be for everyone. Hiking experience, preparation, and proper equipment, especially hiking footwear, are strongly recommended. This trail is a rugged path with stream crossings and steep slopes that is best suited for strong hikers.
Starting at the Meyers Beach parking area off of Hwy 13, the Lakeshore Trail extends 6 miles along red sandstone cliffs and through forests high above Lake Superior and terminates at a reservable backcountry campsite. The trail has three sections. The first goes from Meyers Beach to the Crevasse, a 100-yard-long fracture in the bedrock. The second section travels above the mainland sea caves, and the third section passes through a wooded area, finally ending at the campsite.
