Northeast Michiganís Lake Huron coastal shoreline contains some of the most ecologically rich and diverse areas found in the state. Marshes, limestone bedrock shorelines, cobble beaches, sand beaches, low dunes, dune and swale complexes, wet meadows, northern fens, conifer forests, islands, coastal wetlands, sinkholes and lowland hardwood swamps along the coastal area provide critical habitat for many rare and endangered species. The Huron Shores Greenways is a system of public lands, ecological resources and trails. This web site shows the location of trails with information such as uses, trail length, surface type, and terrain. The greenways also present information on the natural resources, natural features, birding sites and geology of the region.
