Found halfway on the west side of Michigan lies Big Rapids, named for one of the greatest rapids on the Muskegon River. The stream assumed a noteworthy part in the advancement of Big Rapids as it was utilized as a transportation supply route moving logs downstream to the plants situated in Muskegon amid the district’s 1850’s timber blast. The Big Rapids Riverwalk provides 2.6 miles of cleared pathway that features extraordinary perspectives of the encompassing nature. The trail fills in as a prevalent spot for climbing, angling, biking and running. Newaygo State Park overlooking Hardy Dam Pond is also a popular local tourist spot.
