Beautiful scenery-well worth it!

Nice mix of woods and bluffs. Keep going along a Sandy trail at the top for a longer hike. Lots of flowers and fine growth. Great views. Pretty easy trail even with a trick knee.

Hiked this last week. We just went to the bluff and then back. Incline all the way to bluff. View was awesome! You can see North Manitou Island and North Manitou Shoal Lighthouse. Definitely worth the walk.

This is a great trail. Very wide and just as described. Saw couples in flip flops walking it. Beautiful view of Lake Michigan.

Beautiful views. Easy to hike with a few challenging areas.

Easy hike with a beautiful view.

The walk is very easy here, you can even walk up the waterfall if it is shallow enough. One of my favorite waterfalls!

This trail is absolutely beautiful! Chapel rock, chapel falls, and mosquito falls are all wonderful!

Nice easy hike with some decent views.

Nice but heavy traffic as a tourist destination. Cute little park station with very friendly staff

Great hike to the falls, easy for the kiddos too!

Absolutely breathtaking. We ran Mosquito River to the lake and back. Took a dip in the lake briefly. You do need to “bushwhack” for 25-30 yds from trail’s end to get to the lake, but it’s easy because you can see the end of the tree line. The beach area is awesome, and does not have many people on it. Well worth the trip. You don’t need anything except running shoes!

Fun trail with cool overlook over sleeping bear dune and Glen Lake. Recommend doing it in morning as it’s all sand and very little shade.

Easy hike and awesome views as a reward

Used to camp here as a kid. This trail among many others at Ludington State Park are among the best collection of quality trails and shoreline in the Lower Peninsula.

Uber easy, but beautiful view of the falls.

Great views at the end of this trail. Nice short walk through typical forests of the area.

first of all, we drove an hour to do this trail with our dogs and the park says no dogs, not even on leashes. It was too hot to leave them in the car so we just broke the rules and took them. It was a nice walk and the falls were beautiful. there are a lot of stairs to get down to the falls.

Very beautiful hike! Very happy I had this app though for the map- it’s easy to accidentally back track when your stopping off from the trail looking at the scenery. Lovely hike though- my thighs are burnin’!

Gorgeous early morning hike with my Aussie! Really humid and some flies along the lakeshore, but other than that couldn’t ask for a better tart to our day.

Beautiful loop with amazing views along the shoreline! We hiked counterclockwise and saw Chapel first- worked well for us. We found a perfect lunch spot overlooking the lake. Variable terrain and some mud along the trail. Take care along the edge- especially if hiking with kids.

It's a relatively easy hike with a nice view at the end. In my mind, the real trail starts where the official trail ends and you can hike south along the bluffs.

My Fiancé and I had such fun on this hike today! It was absolutely beautiful and had awesome terrain. Definitely a good work out and perfect for a short day hike.

Great hike with views of Lake Michigan and the Glen Lakes. Mostly sand... watch out for the Poison Ivy!!!

Just beautiful! Although it was cloudy i saw some turtles :) combined it with the ridge trail which was more challenging and a great landscape complement

Gorgeous and easy.

The UP at its finest.

This is a great trail with a spectacular view, was a little busy, but it was a holiday weekend. The directions didn't quite take us to the trailhead, so there was some confusion at first, but it was just a little further up the road. You start off in the wooded area with wildflowers with gradual gains and descents. There's a scenic view of the shoreline with a bench that you can take a break if needed before getting out to the bluff. Upon reaching the bluff you're greeted with an awesome view of Lake Michigan with some seating area.
