Hike Island Trail

4 Miles Total - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Alex Harrison

Experience Ludington's hidden gem which snakes in between Hamlin and Lost Lakes and through tall pines and marshy grasses. 

Start at the Hamlin Beach House and make your way down the dirt path until you hit marker #12. Take a right and the trail will become a boardwalk for roughly 3/4 of a mile until you hit marker #10. Continue on from there for another 3/4 of a mile until you hit the trail shelter where you can relax and take a break. From there you will turn around and head back the same way you came.
