Run it off

Run on paved routes or take to the trails in the Grand Haven area. Take a relaxing jog from Chinook Pier along the Grand River and out to the end of the pier at Grand Haven State Park, or challenge yourself to the dunes of Rosy Mound. Run outside in the Winter without the worry of slipping on the heated sidewalks of downtown Grand Haven.

Explore the Grand Haven area through these scenic routes:

Lakeshore Trail
The 20-mile paved bicycle and running path connects the communities of Grand Haven and Holland and allows you to travel from Grand Haven State Park to Holland State Park (two of Michigan’s most famous beaches) on one continuous route. A bridge spanning Pigeon Creek, south of Kirk Park, offers great views of a pristine wetland and natural area. And just south of the Pigeon Creek Bridge, an alternate eastern spur of the trail follows Butternut Drive to downtown Holland. The Lakeshore Trail is a great way to witness the changing seasons, from the wildflowers of spring and golden beaches of summer to the vibrant fall foliage of autumn. Learn more…

This challenging 3.1 mile route takes you through rolling hills and along the beaches of the Grand Haven area.
