We are so excited, here at Glidden Lodge Beach Resort, because the Door County Land Trust just completed the largest conservation project in Door County in almost 50 years by purchasing 483 acres located right across the street from the Lodge. This parcel hooks up with the Shivering Sands State Natural area already accessible with trails further south on Glidden Drive.
This area has the largest tract of white cedar in the state of Wisconsin and is extremely biologically diverse. Hopefully there will be marked trails available soon, with the DNR and Land Trust jointly supervising the property.
So far this spring I’ve had the extreme pleasure of going on 4 hikes in the area, with people who have maps, compasses, and knowledge (we did cross some private property also). A GPS would be a good idea for people striking out on their own. What a godsend to Glidden Lodge, a place already blessed by Mother Nature. Nature lovers will have a field day choosing to walk the gorgeous sandy beach of Lake Michigan or the spectacular woods right across the street.
