MT. BALDY

A view at the top of a 302 step climb.

There is a dune at the top that leads to Oval Beach but its quite a hike back up to get back to your car.

North Woods Trail is also located at the top.  This trail heads into the wooded area to an overlook of Lake Michigan.

Baby Carrier Recommended.

Take a cruise on the Saugatuck Princess Boat.

Take a dune buggy through the dunes at the Saugatuck Dune Rides.

This town has everything you need to plan the perfect getaway.

 

Tallmadge Woods Nature Preserve

2.6 Mile trail loops that brings you along the Kalamazoo River and then to a beautiful view of the Oxbow Lagoon, Lake Michigan, and the river.

You can Park at Mt. Baldy parking lot and walk .5 miles there or you can drive towards the trail head (further past Mt. Baldy North) and park down the hill from the trail head which is a lot closer.

A little tougher for toddlers and a few steep spots.  

Head to Oval Beach after to cool down, it is just a few minutes away.
