Nice 3 mile trail features forests, swamps, dunes, and Lake Michigan

Lots of flora and fauna on this trail. The storm in 2015 definitely changed much of the trail but the lookout points/views are completely worth the hike!!
If you're looking for an outside activity that will take a few hours then do the whole loop. Great trail to hike in the fall, the colors are breathtaking.

This is a beautiful quick hike to a breathtaking view.

Easy. High foot traffic and people with pets at times.

took a detour off the trail to the lake which was peaceful.

I recommend starting this hike in the morning, as the sand can get very warm in the afternoon. Bring water and sunscreen if you plan to do the entire hike. The hike is a lot of fun and jumping into Lake Michigan when you reach the end feels great!

This is a quick loop, probably about 30 min for anyone not as horribly out of shape as I am currently. It's got some steep slopes but nothing too difficult. It's mostly under foliage and you can see the road for the first stretch but then you turn up into the woods and get some really nice views once you start coming downhill around marker 7.

Much further and difficult than it looks, but great exercise and amazing beach/view at the end! Didn't wear shoes for the whole thing!

A great trail with some nice lookout points to Lake Michigan and Glen Lake. Lots of connected loops allow you to choose your own version of the trail. The scenery was drastically changed by the violent storm in August 2015.. many wooded areas were flattened by tornado-like winds. It'll never be the same but still worth visiting!

if you don't want to climb the big dunes I'd recommend these

This is a nice little drive. The last 2 scenics points are awesome. If you have time go down to the beach. It is a nice challenge up.

Great short hike - Easy trail has a few inclines that may be challenging for older hikers. The storm in Summer 2015 did a lot of damage to the area but it is fascinating to see the power of nature.
