Hiking Trail Details
check mark 40x40 navy blue Trail Difficulty: Moderate
Hiking trails are extensive and varied - from 30 minute to three hour hikes.

Each of the eight trails (covered 18 miles total) has natural terrain, but varies in skill level and length. Plus each trail has different, unique features.

You can hike alongside marshes or the beach, through the woods or over sand dunes.

Stop to explore Big Sable Point Lighthouse, launch a kayak or rent a boat at Hamlin Lake, learn historical and natural facts about Ludington State Park or fish along the river or dam.

Change it up and explore watery coves and small islands connected with foot bridges or along the boardwalk. Hike through the air on the completely elevated Skyline Trail where you might be able to see 20 miles to Silver Lake State Park.
