Lakeshore Connector Path

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Lakeshore Connector Path runs along the eastern shore of Lake Michigan, between Grand Haven and Holland, a distance of nearly 20 miles. The paved path parallels Lakeshore Drive and offers access to beachfront parks along the way, including Kirk Park and Tunnel Park. You can also get to the lake at James Street and Riley Street. These areas have no facilities.

Because the trail crosses private driveways, trail users must watch for traffic entering and exiting. Bikes are cautioned to keep their speed down, and families with small children should keep them near hand.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at Holland State Park, Tunnel Park and Kirk Park. See the Trail Website for more information on these parks.
