This is my favorite spot to go . Absolutely amazing

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

My new favorite hiking place.

Beautiful trail and well maintained. Great views as well!

Close to home, enough stairs for a decent workout, and beautiful. love it!

Would be a better run...

Delightful little trail through a backdune forest leading up to the lakeshore. Very pretty and peaceful. Lots of stairs make it a good workout. The trailhead has a place to lock up bikes.

such a beautiful walk through trails and up steps to find the beach at the end

Lots of stairs, but worth the climb to see the view of Lake Michigan. Nice wide trail that is either gravel or wooden planks.

Beautiful little trail/boardwalk leading to the beach. Wish it wasn't $6 to park, but oh well.

Shhh don't tell anybody about this Paradise

This is a beautiful trail. The stairs left me out of breath but it's a great workout. I love that it ends at the beach. This is one of my favorite places in the area.

While the journey is as good as the destination....the final destination here is spectacular! We plan at least a couple hours playing in Lake Michigan/beach before hiking back. Hike is not strenuous though.

One of my favorite hikes in West Michigan ~ great forests, lookout, and small secluded beach access.

pea gravel path, a variety of views, forest, dunes, and the lake. Much higher traffic than expected.

Beautiful and fun trail

Easy trail on Boardwalk. Stairs were a nice addition to add a small bit of challenge. Would definitely go again when we have time to stay on the beach

Beautiful day in a beautiful location. As a bonus, it is good exercise.

Lots and lots of stairs. And ticks. It was beautiful though.

Very pretty trail with access to Lake Michigan. Lots of stairs! We came in November and it was still very beautiful.

Was a great stair workout!

Great hike. We went on a beautiful day with not many other people on the trail. A lot of stairs so be ready to tackle those. If you have kids, there is a small section where you may want to hold their hands because even though it's not really a cliff, it's fairly steep on both sides of a ridge you walk on. The end of the trail is the reward when you walk on the beach. Don't miss the meadow loop that goes off the beach as well if you still have the energy. You do have to pay a fee to park your car.
