I’ve climbed Mt Baldy several times and it is always worth it! The view from the top of Lake Michigan, the Kalamazoo River and Saugatuck is great!

Great place to go burn off the beer calories! I walk and run a lot and I was sore the next day! Well worth the view.

If you want to get some quick exercise before taking the chain ferry or spending the day strolling through Saugutuck window-shopping, then head to Mount Baldhead to climb the stairs and take in the view.

What a climb but totally worth it. It is a long steep climb and I had to take a few breaks along the way but we made it. It was a great way to get a great look at the downtown and Lake Michigan.

This is a must do for athletic people. I jogged here from Butler street and then climbed the 300 steps. My legs were burning by the time I got to the top. It is an amazing view and feat once you reach the top.

This was something we had to do! I think it’s like 360 steps to the top. It’s quite the climb, there is a lookout platform half way up. Once you get to the top it’s Amazing views! Go over the dune and walk right down...More

we're working on some new Mt. Baldhead designs at Landsharks this summer. We've sold several in the past - not exactly "I climbed Mt Bladhead" but some great designs.
