The Fisherman's Foot Path at Erie Bluffs State Park in Lake City, Pennsylvnia is an easy 0.2 mile out-and-back trail that leads from the eastern end of the Bluffs Edge Trail and runs between Elk Creek and Lake Erie before ending along the shoreline of Lake Erie.

This trail is very short but worth the views of Lake Erie, Elk Creek, and The Mouth (where Elk Creek feeds into Erie). It's also a very popular fishing spot, hence the trail name.

The eastern portion of the trail heads downhill before reaching the shoreline and this hill is fairly steep so watch your step. Dogs are allowed on this trail.

Note: as of early March 2018, there's a large tree that's blocking the last section of this trail where it leads down to the shoreline. You can likely find a way around the tree, but the park will also likely clear this up by the Spring.
