Description

Experience Michigan’s wild side by visiting the woofderful Bald Mountain Recreation Area. A beautiful collection of steep hills, lakes, and streams, this pawperty is definitely worth checking out.

If your pup likes to hike, they will love this park. Here they will find several trails that wind through some of southeast Michigan’s most rugged terrain. The park’s North Unit has more elevation change, so your doggo will get more of challenge on the North Blue, White, Orange, and Green Trails. The South Unit’s trails are fairly flat. Trails like the South Red, Orange, or Yellow Trails are mellower. All trails offer beautiful scenery that is sure to make your pup’s tail wag!

Not only does this place have pawsome hiking trails, it has a whole host of other amenities. Visitors are welcome to use the disc golf course, playground, hunting areas, and radio controlled flying field. Fishing is also a pupular activity. All of the park’s lakes have panfish, northern pike, and largemouth bass, but Graham Lake seems to be the best fishing spot. If you’re hoping to reel in a trout, cast your line into Trout Creek or Paint Creek.

Bald Mountain Recreation Area does not have a campground. Overnight stays are limited to the park’s two rustic cabins. Unfurtunately, these are not pet friendly. So you and your pupster can only visit the park for the day. However, there are four furrific picnic areas. Each one has tables, grills, and fire pits. So pack your lunch and enjoy an outdoor meal with your pup!

When it comes to visiting Bald Mountain Recreation Area, it pays to be a Michigan resident. An annual Recreation Passport can be purchased for $11.00 at the time of your license plate renewal or for $16.00 at a State Park. A daily pass for non-residents is $9.00.

Your pup will agree- a day at Bald Mountain Recreation Area is time well spent!
