—–The Grand Traverse Lighthouse is on the State and National Historic Register. 

It is an active aids-to-navigation with a working fog horn used for demonstrations.  The lighthouse and grounds have been lovingly restored to a museum showcasing the life of a lighthouse keeper and family, circa 1920′s – 1930′s.



Snowshoe Hike – February 10

Meet at the trailhead of Leelanau State Park at the end of Densmore Rd at 10 a.m. We will hike on our snowshoes to Cathead Bay, stop at the scenic lookout and make our way back to the parking lot. This is a moderate hike through rolling hills and forests of the park. Refreshments provided by the Friends of Leelanau State Park will be shared along the hike. A recreation passport is required. It can be purchased at the self registration kiosk found at the trailhead.
