Many steps with landings. People are often running up and down for an excellent workout. Beautiful view at the top of Lake Michigan and Lake Macatawa.

The view from the top is amazing. Also a nice wooded trail to walk through. You will get a good workout climbing the stairs to the top but the view is worth it.

Give your legs a workout when you climb up Mt. Pisgah. Lots of landings along the way if you need a break! A beautiful view awaits you when you reach the top - both Lake Macatawa & Lake Michigan can been seen

Great view. A little hard to find a place to park but once we figured that out had a great walk up the 239 steps! Worth the trip.

We made it to the top. 236 steps, but we did it. We had to stop several times along the way, and there are benches to relax. Great view from the top.

This is a nice little climb to help fill time. The climb really isn’t that bad, even a few benches along the way. We made our climb when it was almost 90 degrees, but with the shade along the way, and the nice breeze towards...More

This is a great place to walk and to see the Big Red Lighthouse and lake. The 230 steps aren't too bad. The surrounding town is also nice and there are more walking paths.

I'm 67 and I usually take a break or two on the way up and you can still do the climb in about 10 minutes.

Climbing the stairs at Mt. Pisgah is great for kids. There are benches on landings along the way, but my experience is that the kids do better climbing about 200 steps than the adults do.
