Bay View Trail is one of several hiking and cross-country skiing opportunities available at Big Bay State Park.

Bay View Trail winds and curves around the Lake Superior shoreline for 1.3 miles. Much of the trail is wooded traversing rocky soil occasionally coming within 25 yards of the lake. Sandstone formations and small bluff caves add interest to the hike.
