Beauty Bay Overlook is a quick leg stretcher with decent views across Beauty Bay. It is not nearly as dramatic, or popular, as nearby Mineral Ridge, but give it a try anyway: it’s only half a mile and features excellent picnic facilities.

The first bit of this trail, to the viewing deck, is wheelchair accessible. Views are limited to the Beauty Bay area. From the viewing deck onward, the trail is a packed-dirt singletrack, climbing to the hilltop, but the views really don’t improve. The trail then meanders through the woods with filtered lake views and circles back to the parking lot. Short and quick!
Things to Consider
Not so great
