Segment 8 Day 3 Kleinke Park camping->Menominee 18 miles
High of 72 degrees. July 16
I continued south this day and found Baily Park along the bay where I could walk along the overgrown shoreline for a nice stretch. Route 35 hugged the water for a long stretch, too. I even cooled my feet in the bay at a boat launch.
Public boat launches have been an important part of my trek around Lake Michigan. They are constant access points to and from the lake. Often I have begun my day at a launch and hiked the shore to another launch many miles away.
I made it all the way to Menominee this day, covering the last miles of Michigan along the bay.
