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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
