Upcoming events (4+)

After Work Hike - Pickerel Lake Park

Needs a location

This will be a 5 mile hike through wooded hills and across ramps where there is water in swamp and lake areas. Dogs are not allowed in this nature preserve. This is done together with the Grand Rapids Hiking and Adventure Meetup Group.

After Work Hike - Aman Park

Needs a location

Hike moderate terrain through the woods for 3-5 miles. We will meet in the paved parking lot next door, but begin on the north end of the road. Afterwards, those who choose will meet at Westside Social, 2802 Lake Michigan Dr. NE, Grand Rapids for the Tuesday special of half off select wines and $10 burritos.

Hike Ionia State Recreation Area

Needs a location

Hike the the beautiful eastern equestrian trails for a couple of hours through wooded areas. Not many horses are on these during the weekdays and when they come we just step aside and say hello as they pass. Park at the Cross Country Ski Area which is the first left and before the Bike Trail Head.

Hike Saugatuck State Park - South Trail

Needs a location

This is a mixture of a hilly wooden area, open grassland, and dunes with a possible stop on lake Michigan, depending on the weather. Option to hike some of the north trails after the south trail so we can get 6-10 miles in. We will do this along with the Grand Rapids Hiking and Adventure Meetup group.

Meet at the westside of the township parking area by the mansion, not the state park parking area.

Wear layered clothing. Bring water/snacks. Those willing may go into Saugatuck to enjoy the rest of the day.
