Just south of the Door County Coastal Byway, R-77 parallels Lake Michigan with a Coast Guard station and lighthouse at its southern end. Many types of trees including cedar, maple, white birch and pine line the route. A municipal park is also located along R-77. It was from this spot that Native Americans “portaged” from Lake Michigan to Sturgeon Bay before the ship canal was constructed.
