Trails at West Shore Community College (WSCC) have been added to the Get Off The Couch web site. The college offers two nature trails along the small creek that feeds into the South Branch of the Lincoln River. There is also a 3-mile Cross Country Race Course which is open for walking, jogging, snowshoeing or skiing whenever it is not being used for practices or races. Cross Country Racing is a fall sport.

WSCC is situated at the corner of Stiles Road and Sugar Grove Road, centrally located between Ludington, Scottville, and Manistee, Michigan.

Get Off The Couch is a web site dedicated to providing accurate information about quiet, outdoor, muscle-powered recreation opportunities in west Michigan. It currently has detailed information about 19 activities on over 70 sites in 4 counties.

Additional outside facilities at WSCC include two picnic areas. One is located near the small pond. There is a pavilion, grills, latrines and a small play structure. The other pavilion is in a more level area behind the Recreation Center Building.

West Shore has long been known as a provider of affordable fitness opportunities. There is a large gym with a track around the outside edge, a swimming pool, and racquetball court. Pay by the visit, or buy memberships. There are certain times reserved for groups, classes, etc, and other times when the facility is open to the public. The Wellness Center offers weights and various exercise machines. Membership required.

An ice arena is the newest addition to WSCC's recration facilities. Organized hockey is the primary purpose of the arena, but there is open skating scheduled every day of the week. Skate rental is very reasonable.
