P.H. Hoeft State Park - birding site

A site along the Sunrise Coast Birding Trail north of Rogers City

You will find this gem along Lake Huron by traveling approximately 4.5 miles north of Rogers City on US-23.

Marked hiking trails wander through the mature pine and oak woods, and provide nesting habitat for an excellent variety of passerines, especially warblers. Some of these species that regularly nest here include the Nashville, Chestnut-sided, Magnolia, Black-throated Blue, Yellow-rumped, Black-throated Green, Blackburnian, Pine, Black-and-white Warblers, American Redstart and Ovenbird. In recent years, Merlin have also nested here. Prairie Warblers have been recorded here in the past.

Please remember that in the fall hunting is allowed on the state park land west of US-23, but not on the east (lake) side of the highway. State park motor vehicle permit or recreational passport is required for entry.
