The Karl Boyes Multipurpose trail travels a 13.5-mile loop around the park. You will ride along the Presque Isle Bay and return along the lakeside. Many stops along the way offer outdoor exhibits, restrooms and water. The mileage is marked along the trail pavement and plenty of parking is available along the trail. The park has a "share the road" policy in place and it is permitted to ride along the roadway with traffic. It is important to obey all the rules of the road for your safety.
