It's very pretty and very well taken care of. Nice and challenging enough and usually not to crazy busy on bikers and other hikers.

Hiked on a weekday and saw just one hiker and a couple bikers...good challenge and beautiful

Such a beautiful trail! Really peaceful, you can’t hear road traffic and I didn’t run into many people. The main trail isn’t super well marked so it’s easy to go off on side trails rather than the main loop, but it’s also easy to find your way back. After one hike it’s easily become one of my favourite trails in the area.

So Nice! beautiful views.... and now I am very tired. went on a few trails that we not marked and more of a ridge trail. worth it! can get busy in there... saw a lot of people and dogs. but enjoyed every minute including a picnic lunch on the beach. for January... not bad!!

Beautiful Lake Michigan views! Lots of stairs through pretty dunes. Don’t skip Acorn Trail that veers of to the south for a few tenths to step into the gorgeous pine forest.

Trail was super hard to find and follow after hitting the campsite, but it's an absolutely beautiful trail with enough uphills to make you feel like you earned your fish and chips.

Nice trail. I would rate more at moderate than easy due to elevation changes and tree roots. Just a note....in the winter you have to park aways out and walk in to the trailhead.

This is a fantastic trail! We meant to just do the 2 mile loop around the lake.... but was so captivated by the scenery that we did the lake trail, island trail, ridge trail, lighthouse trail, coast guard trail n all the way back to Hamlin Lake (to where we parked). it was about 8-9 miles, and for December was surprisingly used by trail runners. Very worth the effort... and it was effort (elevations were so much fun)!

Fun trail! Not well marked and there are a bunch of side trails, so make sure you have a map. It’s late fall now, so there was a dusting of snow and I saw no people the whole time. Very nice day hike!

Nice mix of walking surfaces, great 30 min workout if you run / jog

Absolutely beautiful trail. You can also take the path north and get on top of the blowout dune for an incredible 360 degree view.

Pretty easy 1.7 miles. Beautiful scenery.

one of my favorite hiking spots in western Michigan

Wasn’t able to find a clear trailhead or path. There was a note on the board about seasonal hunting taking place but it looked like the trail has been shut down completely.

Great trail with lots of character. Watch for bikers!

beautiful

Perfect hike to catch the fall colors along the lakeshore. The first half of the hike is solid ground, once you get to the lakeshore, it's all sandy dunes, which is a challenge to climb in hiking boots! The last quarter is back through the woods. We made it in about 2 hours and we were taking our time.

Great fall hike, lots colorful trees

The app map is missing the black "sawtooth" trail. This trail is popular with trail bikers.

Definitely poorly marked...but a pretty trail.

A great secluded challenging hike! you can break off the hike and go to the beach or stay on the trail.

This is my favorite spot to go . Absolutely amazing

I definitely lost the trail way more than I expected, expecially since there are so many extra route to take, make sure to have a map! The veiws are nice but the path I took was very hilly and I ended up having to bush wack my way to another section of trail after getting lost. All in all a fun hike.

Slightly hilly . Scenic view of Lake Michigan 2/3 the way through. Mostly woodlands with tree roots to navigate around, which I could see being slippery if wet. All in all a nice short trail.

Very nice trail. Particularly enjoyed the views of the dunes and Lake Michigan

too many mosquitoes! make sure to spray yourself well before you get here

This is my family's favorite trail, we try to come up here once a year to enjoy it! It is a great mix of lake views, forest, islands and hills. There is a swimming area at the bottom of a small dune to cool off if you get too warm. Just a great place to take a hike!

My new favorite hiking place.

I loved this trail. You’re in the Deepwoods about 95% of the time. It is a little bit dominated by mountain bikers but my experience was that they were all very pleasant and let you know as they were coming how many of them to expect. Made it very easy to just get out of the way momentarily. Good elevation changes and great distance. I’ll definitely do it again the next time I travel here
