TRAINING FOR HIKING GRAND CANYON
Grand Mere Park, Stevensville, Michigan Hike

TRAINING HIKE Saturday 8:00AM March 20th, 2010

Yes, the destination is fantastic but the journey is too; Each hike stands on its own merit. The Grand Mere hike is no exception.  Grand Mere State Park is located near Stevensville, MI.  The 2007 hike was held on a foggy morning obscuring the view of Lake Michigan but adding an aura of mystique to this beautiful and challenging venue.  This is a quad builder and a chance to test your trekking poles.  LINKS: The Park  Map (I-94 exit 22, west on Grand Mere Dr. then an immediate south on Thorton) 
Course Map (Note: this course may be very difficult to follow without Ron's signs and please know that some of the beach area is private property which could be a problem in warmer weather.  However, there is plenty of opportunity to explore the public areas of this beautiful park on your own.)
