Mount Baldy


Meet at the Mount Baldy parking lot for a ranger-led hike to the top of the beautiful and famous Mount Baldy. The views of Lake Michigan and the surrounding area are spectacular. No reservation required.

Guided hikes to the summit occur every Friday in July and August (except 8/2), from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm. Bring your camera to capture the spectacular views. In addition, Mt. Baldy Open Houses are offered every Sunday in July, from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Please arrive by 3:30 pm to give yourself enough time to complete the hike to the summit. There will be rangers in the parking lot and on the summit providing information about how Mount Baldy formed and why it is moving.

Please note that the Mount Baldy parking lot and beach are open everyday from 6:00 am to 11:00 pm. The dune itself, however, is still closed for general public use. We strongly ask the public to respect and follow posted closure signs and stay out of roped-off areas. The dune is still closed for reasons of public safety and restoration efforts.
