Description

This trail starts at the top of Mount Baldhead and follows a steep ridge down, ending at a turnaround area at the side of Perryman Street, near the entrance to Oval Beach.

The path offers beautiful views of Lake Michigan and there are steep sections at both ends. Much of the trail is shifting sand, including a short section at the top of an exposed dune.
