South end of the Mackinac Bridge to Kipp Road, east of Harbor Springs
The Harbor Springs Chapter organizes hikes throughout the year, with most of them occurring during the spring, summer and fall. Some planned hikes are the same each year, such as a Mother’s Day hike and a hike to coincide with the lady slipper bloom. Other hike locations vary to show off different parts of the Trail. A necessary part of the Chapter’s activities is maintenance of the Trail. This usually consists of clearing downed trees but can be as simple as just checking the Trail for obstructions such as overhanging limbs or fallen branches. The Chapter also mows part of the Trail to keep ferns, grass and bushes from overgrowing the Trail. Work days are set up as needed, usually to repair or construct boardwalk over wet areas. The Chapter holds four membership meetings per year in April, June, August and October, to plan activities and compare notes with what’s happening on various other parts of the Trail. Two of the meetings include food. We would love to have you join us for one or any of our monthly events. Contact us to learn more!
