Give your legs a workout when you climb up Mt. Pisgah. Lots of landings along the way if you need a break! A beautiful view awaits you when you reach the top - both Lake Macatawa & Lake Michigan can been seen

Great view. A little hard to find a place to park but once we figured that out had a great walk up the 239 steps! Worth the trip.

We made it to the top. 236 steps, but we did it. We had to stop several times along the way, and there are benches to relax. Great view from the top.

This is a great place to walk and to see the Big Red Lighthouse and lake. The 230 steps aren't too bad. The surrounding town is also nice and there are more walking paths.
