About the Ride

To climb to the summit and see spread in all directions such a vast panorama is breathtaking! Glide down the sweeps into the valleys, drive past sparkling Silver Lake, and see Lake Michigan’s lovely beach! Visitors of all ages enjoy the exciting, scenic rides. We are accessible to the mobility impaired. Come anytime! We only take reservations for charter bus tours and school groups.
