Ride for Nature Ramble Professional Review and Guide

"The Ridges Sanctuary straddles a point that separates Baileys Harbor and Moonlight Bay. Seventeen sand ridges parallel the curve of Baileys Harbor. The oldest of these abandoned beach dunes dates back 2,400 years. Within these confines thrives a world of wildflowers with names like Trailing Arbutus, Arctic Primrose, Showy Lady Slipper, and Fringed Gentian. On the third Saturday of June each year, the Ridges Sanctuary hosts the Ride for Nature of support its work of preserving its unique heritage of a hundred flowering plants.

The tour starts as the town hall in Baileys Harbor, an old fishing port on the Lake Michigan shore of the Door County peninsula. Just north of town the route takes an out-and-back course along a beach road that separates the bay from the sanctuary. You may want to pause for a stroll through the wildflowers on one of the many sand-ridge trails. There's more scenery along County Q as you skirt the shore of Moonlight Bay and take another side trip to the Cana Island Lighthouse and the sandy beaches of Spike Horn Bay."
