Known as the Sanctuary of the Great Lakes, the historic port city of Alpena sits nestled between a vast forest and Lake Huron’s picturesque Thunder Bay.
  • Besser Natural Area is a serene 1-mile foot trail that leads to the ghost village of Bell, white pine trees, a lagoon, and a beautiful sandy beach.
  • Starlite Beach is a kid-friendly park overlooking Lake Huron with play structures, public restrooms, a pavilion, a picnic area, a beach, and a splash park.
  • Alpena Bi-Path Trail is a 14-mile almost flat and paved loop that runs past parks and other amenities.
