Bundle up and take it outdoors!

All told Muskegon County has over 60 miles of trails of natural and paved trails perfect for snowshoeing and fat tire biking.There are also 26 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline and when they freeze and get snow covered, the coast takes on an otherworldly magnificence! Taking walk on the frozen landscape will leave you breathless with how beautiful it is. (But mind the safety rules!)

Don’t forget the Muskegon Luge and Adventure Sports Park! Did you know they have one of only four public luge tracks in the United States? And an outdoor skating trail that winds through the State Park woods. It is lit at night and it’s beautiful! Learn to Luge Weekend begin on December 27th.

Information on these and more events (there are so many!) can be found on our Calendar of Events
