Great trail! Met a wonderful woman and her dog who we walked the trail with. I also just got engaged on this trail so obviously it was great!

Nice hike, but no spectacular views. Walking along the beach was nice. The elevation gain was a little tougher due to the loose sand.

Trail not well marked at certain places but a pretty cool loop. Loop included stairs and different elevations to keep our 9, 11 and 13 year old interested. They found lots of Petoskey and Charlevoix stones on beach route back.

First to Review

I extended the Old Baldy Portage Trail Loop by adding the “difficult” portion of the Portage Trail, and then dropping down to the beach for the return. It makes for a grand walk, at about 3.2 miles and with a bit more up and down than the original. The walk along the beach is gorgeous.
