  • We climbed the 262 stairs to the top of Mt. Baldhead. At the top you are rewarded with a great view of Kalamazoo River and Lake. Do this in the morning and work off your breakfast.  more »

  • This park has huge sand dunes which separate the river and fishing town from the beach. On one side of the dunes there are steep stairs to climb (or descend from) and on the other towards the beach, a steep sloping dune. This makes for a great workout! However, if you're not fairly fit, this could pose a challenge so beware. Parking can be a pain if it's a popular day so be prepared to do some walking. The beach is small but nice with direct parking.
  • Looking for some exercise, maybe a quick run up some steps? This is your place! I believe it's over 300 steps to the top, but along the way there are many landings with benches, where you can sit to catch your breath. The steps were rebuilt a free years ago, so they are nice and sturdy with good rails. Once at the top their is an old military base/ lookout. It's fenced off, you can't get in. Also there are some good hiking/walking trails to explore once you reach the top. If you walk down the back side, oval beach awaits, but be warned, the walk back is much longer than you may think. Once your back down to the parking lot, there is also a Mt Baldhead museum across the street. Hope this helps.
  • Breathtaking views! Great area for those who don't mind hiking. Not handicap accessible and MANY stairs so I wouldn't go if you cannot tolerate intense cardio. Well maintained and there is a lot of nature!
  • Had so much fun walking up the stairs then running down the dunes that lead to lake michigan.
  • Stairs will kick you butt... Great workout!
