Our property spans 0.9 miles from the main land side of our access bridge, across Snowshoe Island, across a 1/4-mile causeway, then to the far end of Association Island. The terrain is generally level which is perfect for brisk or leisurely walks or bike rides. So bring your walking shoes or bikes! Note that the road surface is oil and stone, and not as smooth as asphalt so roller-skates or -blades are not permissible.
