Parks, Beaches & Trails
There are plenty of great parks to choose from in and around Port Austin. The Village itself, though only one-square mile in size, has 4 parks, including Veterans Waterfront Park and Bird Creek County Park on the shoreline, both with sandy beaches, pavilions and play areas. Another half dozen parks and beaches are close by (ten minutes or less from downtown).
Trails include a five-mile long hiking trail at Port Crescent State Park, trails at the Huron County Nature Center, and the “Tip of the Thumb Heritage Water Trail” for kayakers and canoeists.
