Description

Windmill Island Gardens in Holland Michigan is a tribute to all things Dutch. The island itself explodes into vibrant colors during springtime when about 100,000 tulips are in bloom. The island also has a 250-year-old functioning windmill that was brought to Michigan from the Netherlands called "De Zwaan".

This trail completely encircles the island along its outer edge. It is wide, paved, and flat making it very easy going for the whole family. In addition to passing by the tulip fields and De Zwaan, you'll also get nice views of the islands system of canals and dykes. You can pick the trail up from either bridge.
