Muskegon Lakeshore Trail

About Muskegon Lakeshore Trail

Muskegon Lakeshore Trail is approximately 12 miles long and winds along the shoreline of Muskegon Lake. Paralleling Lakeshore Drive and Shoreline Drive, the trail offers beautiful views of the lakes, the channel, the South Pier Lighthouse, the sand dunes, and Muskegon parks. It provides pedestrian access to historic and maritime attractions, dining venues, and seasonal festivals.

Parking is available at Pere Marquette Park on the south end, at Heritage Landing, at the Muskegon Lake Nature Preserve on the north end, and at other marked spots along Lakeshore Drive.

Lakeshore Trail also connects to the Laketon Trail, which connects to the Musketawa Trail (heading south-east). North of Muskegon, the trail connects to the Fred Meyer Berry Junction Trail.
