From the simple, sandy shores of Nantucket to the volcanic paths in Maui, these bike trails range from easy to exhilarating, but all reward with sweeping views of the water.

Presque Isle peninsula curls protectively around Erie, Pennsylvania, on the north shore of Lake Erie. A 13.5-mile trail around the park offers lots of picnic areas and other enticing places to rest. Flocks of migrating birds (shorebirds in April) make spring a wonderful time to visit; 814/833-7424 or presqueisle.org.
