Walk 4 – Graveyard Pond Trail

This is a short and easy walk. If you like to fish, there are many stops to dip your line for perch, large and small mouth bass, and northern pike. The trail follows the Presque Isle Lagoon’s Graveyard Pond and Big Pond. At two points along the walk there are picnic tables at the water’s edge; therefore, if you have time, packing a lunch might make this a special walk. The area is rich in bird life and waterfowl. With the closeness of Perry Monument and Misery Bay, a photographer can spend hours with the unique scenery.


This walk starts at the Perry Monument parking lot. Cross the main road to the trailhead. Follow the pathway to its end and return by retracing your steps.
