Depending on the weather the plan will be to hike to the Big Sable Point Lighthouse along the beach, then go inside and do the Lighthouse Trail, Ridge Trail, Island Trail and work our way between Lost Lake and Hamlin Lake to the Hamlin Lake Beach House and the dam, then take the Sable River Trail back to the parking lot. Since this is approximately 8 miles bring a snack/light lunch and water. Afterwards we will eat at the House of Flavors Ice Cream House before heading home. If you plan to camp at Ludington State Park, make your reservations early as this is a popular state park. We will be meeting in the small parking lot straight in from the entrance next to the warming shelter. If you park in the large parking lot by the beach house, just walk back to us.
Those wanting to carpool from Grand Rapids meet at the carpool lot at West River Dr. & 131 (near Fifth Third Ballpark) at 7:45 AM.
This hike is also listed on the Grand Rapids Ski Club Meetup and Grand Rapids Hiking & Adventure Group Meetup.
