Great for a short walk

Came in the winter. Great walk out along the pier. The ice piled up over it is impressive and makes for some great scenery different from the summer.

At the Sterns beach, you can take the hike out to the lighthouse which is always fun on a nice day. Bring your camera, especially for the spectacular sunsets and to watch the Badger carferry arrive and depart.

Regardless of winter or summer, this leaning lighthouse needs to be photographed. Didn't make the walk out this winter as the wind chills were -26 but did in July. A great fireworks display in summer. Lighthouses are awesome and this one is so quaint!

This is one of my favorite short hikes in the Ludington area. It is always nice to stroll out to the lighthouse and back, but always be careful that the waves are not rolling over the pier!

Love the way the water breaks on this point and I am loving the unforgettable sunsets on the bay. I saw many people taking photos and I should have been too, but the experience was so good, I didn't want to interrupt it taking photos.

We stopped in Ludington for breakfast and drove over the the nearest beach to check out the water. We lucked out and found the North Breakwater Lighthouse. My daughter and I took a walk down the pier to check out the lighthouse and to our surprise, they offered a tour of the lighthouse. For a few dollars each, we were... More

The water is very blue by this walk to the lighthouse. You'd think you're in the carribbean. The pier offers a nice walk out to the lighthouse. Watch the waves though! Depending on the wind that day the water may come up on the pier.

If the waves aren't crashing, be sure to walk out the breakwater to the lighthouse and visit the museum exhibits inside the lighthouse. Stop and talk to a fisherman, see how they're biting. Marvel at the glowing translucent blueness that is Lake Michigan, and absolutely come back at dusk for the greatest sunsets to be photographed and remembered for years... More

We passed up a free wine tasting for sunset pictures and were not disappointed. It is about a 1/8 mile walk along the jetty to the light, but worth the walk and view. We were rewarded with a wonderful sunset.

Waves were lapping over the walkway when arrived at the pier. It was a beautiful sight. Nice pictures on a cool morning
