From Kalamazoo, we will drive 1-hour northwest to Saugatuck Dunes State Park on the shore of Lake Michigan.  The South Trail stretches 5.2 miles through a secluded strip of the Lake Michigan shoreline.  The terrain of the trail varies from steep slopes to rolling dune hills, making it a moderately difficult journey for hikers.  Visitors will encounter deep dune forests as well as picturesque views of Lake Michigan.  Of the trails that compose the trail systems in Saugatuck Dunes State Park, this is the most secluded and wooded hike.  A lunch stop will be made at a local restaurant on the return trip.  Trip participants will meet in the hotel lobby at 8:45 AM.

Includes: Transportation, guided hike; lunch on your own.
