The much anticipated 2019 Mackinac Bridge Walk is September 2, 2019, 7:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m. Are you doing your stretches in preparation? ;)
Did You Know?
You may walk from either end of the bridge and go as far as you like!
Just know that if you wish to walk the entire way across the bridge, you must reach the midway point by 10:00 a.m. or you will be turned around as the bridge will be reopened to traffic promptly at noon.
1. The easiest plan in terms of ease and cost is to park in Mackinac City (or at your hotel) and walk to the mid-point of the bridge. Hang out a bit to relish the view (and your hard word!), snap some bridge selfies and then head back to your starting point. Just know there will be a long line to start the walk!
2. Take Star Line directly to St. Ignace to walk the entire distance of the bridge-The ferry will depart from Mackinaw City Dock at 6:30 am and head directly to their St. Ignace dock. Upon arriving in St. Ignace, you will need to walk across the street to catch the free shuttle to the starting point. These lines can be pretty long too. More info will be available soon.
3. Shepler's Ferry will also offer passage from Mackinaw City to St. Ignace. Can purchase tickets ahead of time. More info will be available soon
4. What if you are already on Mackinac Island? A boat will leave directly from Star Line's Mackinac Island Dock at 6:00 am. Check their website for more info on round trip pricing.
