Besser Natural Area Loop Trail

Besser State Natural Area

The Besser State Natural Area is a nice little piece of protected property that sits on the Lake Huron shore in extreme eastern Presque Isle County. Formerly home to the logging community of Bell the natural area features a nice empty stretch of Great Lakes shoreline, virgin forest, and a few scattered remnants of Bell itself. Quite a variety of things to look at for only a 1.5 mile hike!
