P.J. Hoffmaster State Park

Today was a great day for hiking around P.J. Hoffmaster State Park in Muskegon, MI. There are a number of trails to choose from. If you want a short hike and some great views, park near the visitor center and take the boardwalks to the dune overlook platforms and then out to Lake Michigan. If you want a longer hike, you can take the beach and come back on the Homestead Trail making it a 3-mile loop. You will experience a lot of different terrain: Beach, dunes, and woods. There are interpretive signs along the trail to make the trip a learning experience. :)

Since this is a state park you will need a vehicle permit. You can purchase one as you drive in for $10/year which is also good for other state parks in Michigan.
