Ever since the author hiked the perimeter of Lake Michigan in 2009 (and wrote her popular 2011 book, A 1,000-Mile Walk on the Beach), people have asked her about her favorite stretches of the Lake Michigan lakeshore to hike . . . especially options less than 1,000 miles long! Now, Niewenhuis has assembled a list of her 10 favorite stretches of shoreline to walk. With a mapEver since the author hiked the perimeter of Lake Michigan in 2009 (and wrote her popular 2011 book, A 1,000-Mile Walk on the Beach), people have asked her about her favorite stretches of the Lake Michigan lakeshore to hike . . . especially options less than 1,000 miles long! Now, Niewenhuis has assembled a list of her 10 favorite stretches of shoreline to walk. With a map and ideas for starting points for each, she selected great hikes in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Illinois, including walks at Warren Dunes, Grand Mere State Park, Ludington State Park, and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in Michigan's lower peninsula, Fayette Historic State Park in the U.P., and Harrington Beach and Kohler-Andrae parks in Wisconsin, plus two urban walks on the lakeshore in Milwaukee and Chicago. The hiking trails (mostly unmarked, as the paths generally follow the lake) range from very short up to long hikes of 15 miles or more. It's a brief ebook, only about 35 pages long, but offers inspirational ideas for outings that celebrate this wonderful and scenic natural resource. She includes notes on local attractions, museums, and independent bookstores, with an appendix noting major organizations like the Sierra Club, Nature Conservancy, and Alliance for the Great Lakes that are working to preserve and protect Lake Michigan and the Great Lakes environment. After her first 1,0000-mile walk in 2009 around Lake Michigan, the author undertook a second 1,000-mile adventure, walking stretches of all five Great Lakes, culminating in her 2013 book, A 1,000-Mile Great Lakes Walk. In 2014, she is wrapping up a third 1,000-mile walk, focusing on exploring Great Lakes islands, with a book due out in 2015. She does many talks for book clubs, public libraries, and environmental groups; her website is www.LakeTrek.com....
