Warren Dunes has three miles of shoreline, six miles of hiking trails and is open year-round. It also has a dune formation that rises 260 feet above the lake with spectacular views and 1,952 acres of recreational opportunity.

Wind was strong so the waves were fun. Other wise simple hike.

A dandy mix of terrain, scenic views and a multitude of distance/difficulty options. This is as good as it gets for SW Michigan.

Spent an hour here today climbing the dunes with my dog. Definitely my favorite local hike. The route can be challenging and the views are spectacular.

A hike through woodlands, dunes, and beach environments makes this trail diverse and visually entertaining throughout.

This is a very woodsy and shaded hiking area. It's a very interesting mix of beach dunes, green forest, and part of the early path through the forest is sandy, not dirt. The hiking itself is nice and lush, and the climb to the top of the dunes is fairly challenging (at least coming from the east) but worth it for the views. The views are really something! If you aren't in shape, the climb will be pretty tough, your legs will definitely get a workout.

We went on the Friday before Labor Day weekend and there were people on the beach but it wasn't crowded, and during the forest hike (between points 3 and 4) we didn't encounter another soul. We also didn't see any trash, so I am grateful for the attentive staff and the admission charge to get in. We'd been to Al Sabo preserve earlier in the day, and there was dog poo and trash in some areas there.

It was very pretty but on a hot day it is a challenging hike. This is on the difficult side of "moderate." Bring lots of water and extra sunscreen and bug spray in case you take longer than you planned.

Very nice walk and a study in contrasts. Hot and sunny with a challenging sandy surface on the beach and foredunes, but lovely shaded packed sand in the valley behind the dunes.

beautiful scenery... rough walking in the sand but great challenge

Great beach trail. There are dunes and trails to choose from. The parking lot is large enough to accommodate RV parking, and at the very north end of the parking lots there is a dog beach section.

A nice walk, with some good uphill thanks to the dunes. The northern half was very wet and muddy, so wouldn't try it after a rain.

Fun trail for a walk with the family. Some big hills make for great views of Lake Michigan and the dunes. Lots of walking in the sand.

This is a great trail! Fairly easy if you are in shape. Uphill most of the way.

One of my favorite spots to hike with our dog and kindergartener.

This trail is great as it basically circumnavigates the entire 2,000 acre park, using four trails or a stretch along Lake Michigan. By doing the loop, our walk took us through forests, up and over sand dunes and just above the beaches, then back to the car by heading over the sand dunes once again.

First time to the lake shore and the wind was blowing good so the waves had a lot of white caps which made it spectacular. Loved the dunes. Mt. Randal loop trail is done by combining four trails.
