Hart-Montague Trail State Park and And White Lake Trailway  [Wildlife Viewing Area] - Closest Towns: Major trailheads at Hart and Montague.  Michigan Department of Natural Resources (231) 873-3083.  From Ludington, take US-31 south to the Hart exit. Turn left (east) onto Polk Road and proceed about one mile. The trailhead is on the left (north) side of Polk Road, near downtown Hart. From Muskegon, take US-31 north to the Whitehall exit. The trail can be accessed either in Whitehall or Montague.  This site is composed of twenty-two miles of abandoned railroad corridor that have been converted into a recreation trail. The northern portion of this paved trail is hilly and winding, while the southern segment is generally straight and flat. The trail meanders through agricultural lands, orchards, and forest, including a portion of the Manistee National Forest. A three-mile section of trail has been added that extends through the Cities of Montague and Whitehall and has been titled the White Lake Trailway.  High probability of seeing many varieties of songbirds year-round. Moderate probability of seeing deer in fields and orchards along the trail especially in the morning and evening. There is a great abundance of wildflowers from spring through summer. Look for remnant prairie grasses along the trail in the town of Mears.  Viewing platforms with picnic tables are located between Mears and Rothbury offering scenic, panoramic views of the surrounding wooded areas. The bridge over the White River on the White Lake Trailway also provides many wildlife viewing opportunities. Trail passes are no longer required to use the trail.
