We arrived at our hotel in Muskegon in the early afternoon, got checked, settled and lunched before taking a bike ride. The Lakeside Trail is just across the road from our hotel and would be the trail for today. Our hotel is in the middle of downtown Muskegon, which is about four blocks long as I can see. The city council are at least trying to keep this part of town alive and vibrant and we had a little time at the street event in the evening with music and people watching.
The trail takes us along Muskegon Lake onto the outskirts of town and then to Lake Michigan.

|White caps on Muskegon Lake indicate the wind we had this day|
|Housing for your pet|
|Here is another wind indicator|
We rode through some old parts of town with closed up mills and huge buildings in the midst of tear down destruction. Then into a few nice neighborhoods and park.
|Maybe this house is haunted?|
Trail ended at Lake Michigan as we fought the blustery winds and blowing sands.
|This trail connector took us to the sub on display|

|Guy with a dog offered to take our photo|
|Apparently this was the birthplace of Buster|
Returning to town we took the loop through the nearby park which is quite extensive for an intown park. The path winds through in a maze like fashion and skirts along Muskegon Lake.
|Bridge in the park winds us back to the trail to the hotel/|
We continued past our hotel on the other end of the trail for just a few miles.
|Found another bridge to wander along|
|At the turn around point we kind of interrupted a wedding photo session, but quickly departed so to stay out of their photos|
So ended our day in Muskegon.
