Things To Do in West Michigan This Weekend: November 4-6, 2022
When was the last time you went on a hike with goats? How about running a .1k Race (which is about two blocks!)? Or you could go roller skating in black light! Those are just a few of the events happening in West Michigan this weekend...
Autumn Goat Hikes
Friday, November 4, 2022 - 6206 Ada Drive, SW, Ada, MI
Enjoy the nice fall weather by hiking with goats! Unleashed, the thirteen Nubian dairy goats orbit around the hikers, climbing trees, grazing wild plants, and playfully exploring as you hike through forest, marsh, and prairie. It starts with a meet-and-greet and some treats for the goats, then you head out for a leisurely 40-45 minute hike, around one mile. The trail is rustic and unpaved. Wear long pants and closed-toed shoes to protect yourself from the elements (bugs, poison ivy, thorns, etc). Tickets are $15/person. The hike is capped at 10 people. Additional details can be found on the Autumn Goat Hikes Facebook Events page.
