Join our club on its second annual observance of National Trails Day in the Saugatuck-Douglas-Laketown area on Saturday, June 4, 2022, between 1:00 and 4:00 PM.
A hundred people participated last year! Everyone had a great time and most of them learned about trails that were new to them.
How it works: Come to Trail Scramble headquarters at the Welcome Center and pick up a card, Grab a paper map of area trails or bookmark the Google Map above. Then visit the trail locations to get your card stamped. With three stamps you will be able to use valuable coupons on the back of the card at local merchants.
Pick up a new Radar Hill Hiking Club patch! In return, we will be accepting donations to offset the cost of the event.
When you get thirsty, visit Guardian Brewing Co. and try their Radar Hill Gorp Porter, specially brewed in honor of Trails Day.
A special thank-you to our collaborators in this event: RiverWood Council, Allegan County Parks & Rec, Laketown Township Parks, Friends of the Blue Star Trail, Scout Troop 333, Community Church of Douglas, and the Mount Baldhead Challenge. Local businesses donating coupons include Landsharks of Saugatuck, Guardian Brewing, Back Alley Pizza, Lakeshore Pet Boutique, and Grins of Saugatuck.
