    Get ready to enjoy 13.5 miles of biking on the Karl Boyes Multi-purpose trail which circles the entire Presque Isle State Park. The trail provides a relatively flat terrain and beautiful views.

    Presque Isle State Park is about 1,000 years old. Sediment and rubble left over from a melting glacier stayed in this area over time, forming this peninsula. Check out this C-SPAN video for more info. Read more
