This is a 12 to 20 minute leisurely ride from the southern boarder of Whitehall Michigan to the White Lake Area Chamber of Commerce near the northern city limit. It is a good family experience and it has parking at both ends. Take the time to enjoy the whole virtual trip if you can.

 

Clear Springs Nature Preserve was, at one time a fishery but is now a quiet preserve with many trails for walking and biking. Some trails are best for advanced trail riding  with very narrow portions and should be investigated first. Others are wide. They are all excellent for hiking and views of the water.

This ride is a combination of the red, yellow and blue trails.

Access from US31 is just east of the park entrance.

 

This segment of the White Lake Pathway connects the two cities of Whitehall and Montague and traverses the White River by way of the old railroad trestle. The Montague trailhead at the end of this short video is where the William Field Memorial Hart-Montague Trail continues north. 

 

The short walk (sped up in the video) is from the White Lake Area Chamber of Commerce to Lions Park and on to the White River Trail. This presentation ends at the White River Marsh overlook, a small deck with a view of the expansive marsh where the Red Winged Blackbirds can be heard and Great Blue Herons occasionally glide by over the cattails.

An aerial and ground tour of the White River Barrier Dune Sanctuary. It is located just north of Michigan's White Lake channel. It was rescued from senseless development by a grass roots campaign. Enough money was raised to buy a remaining parcel in order to protect the entire sanctuary.
