“That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” – 2 Corinthians 12: 10
I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say this is the absolute nicest roadside (rest-stop) beach on M-28, and probably in the whole UP. AuTrain is a beach that draws people like windshields draw bugs, like headlights draw deer, like porch lights draw mosquitos, or like beauty draws smoke from a bonfire. I sometimes feel like people drive along M-28 for no other reason than to stop at this beach or to drive past its magnificent expanse of golden grains. Wow. Whatta beach!
Obviously, this is a roadside beach… a rest stop. There is a nice parking area with picnic tables, cooking grills, etc… and some outhouses. The beach is just spectacular! AuTrain is a clean beach with a lot of room for playing games. Water is clean, clear, and refreshing. Definitely worth stopping if you are traveling through. Also worth a special trip.
