The three main trail heads are:
bulletAccess A: Two miles east of Rapid River on U.S. 2.  Turn left onto County Road 509 and travel 1.5 miles north.  Parking lot is on west side of road. Trail goes north 22 miles to Access B.
bulletAccess B: Two miles east of Rapid River on U.S. 2.  Turn left onto Country Road 509 and travel 16 miles north.  Parking lot is on east side of road.  Trail goes north 18 miles to Access C.

The Bay de Noc - Grand Island Trail parallels the Whitefish River, staying from 1/2 to 2 miles east of the river.  The trail follows the approximate location of an ancient Chippewa Indian portage route used to carry canoes and supplies between Lake Superior and Lake Michigan.  Following the river bluff for a considerable distance, it offers the hiker many extended views to the west across the Whitefish River valley.
