Crystal Point Launch and Hiking Area
Crystal Point is a gem of the area. Comprising the whole southern point at the entrance to Presque Isle Harbor it includes a small pond within its green space. There are hiking trails which at times follow the sea wall of rocks piled up by earlier storms, and at times traverse both softwood and hardwood forests. These trails give access to many views of Lake Huron and take the walker close to the location of the wreck of the Albany and Albany point. Located at Crystal Point is a boat launch for small boats (although, when lake levels are low, an alternate ramp is located at the marina across from Crystal Point). In addition the association rents two mooring balls for vessels up to 45 feet which are accessible from the launch ramp. Many residents and friends watch the 4th of July fireworks from the beach near the launch ramp. There is a locked gate which limits vehicle access. Owners may purchase a key at the clubhouse.
