Welcome to Shoreline West Day Two! (64 miles)

On our second day, you’ll get a peek at some of Michigan’s more varied terrain. Fuel with breakfast at camp, then make your way towards Frankfort, on the way, enjoy the charming towns of Manistee and Onekama. Each has its own unique character and strong history. In Manistee, the North Pierhead Lighthouse was established in 1927 and is still in use today.

Just after passing through Arcadia and Jungle Inn Drive, you’ll reach today’s big climb up Watermelon Hill. At a 12% grade, the half-mile climb can be challenging – but your mind is sure to be set on the juicy watermelon we’ll be serving at the top. As you enjoy your reward, be sure to climb the steps to the top of the scenic overlook. The view is absolutely stunning.

Frankfort is an ideal town for us to stay in: easily walkable with a number of great restaurants and shops. Tonight we again work to benefit local education by having Frankfort High School provide us a catered dinner in camp. Afterward, you can then finish out the evening by strolling along Betsie Lake down to Lake Michigan and watch the sunset from the public beach. On your way back, check out Stormcloud Brewing on Main Street.
