spectacular views and the stairs to the lake (and back!) provide a good workout

Beautiful views and a huge variety of wildflowers. Trails are very well maintained with mulched paths. We chose not to do the stairs to go down to the lakeshore, but that looks like a good option for next time. Nice, easy hike with the pup on a beautiful day.

Beautiful day spent walking, not as difficult as indicated.

love that all Trails are either soft mulch or gravel. great walking or jogging surface. can actually look at the landscape without having to watch for roots or rocks in the pathways.

It was busy and beautiful trails

This trail is easy but really beautiful. it's a good place to go with your family and take a relaxing walk. it can get really busy, too because of how scenic it is.

Wasn't a bad walk. Came on a Sunday and there were a lot of people, A LOT! Very easy walk with only 1 bathroom location. It was pretty, but not sure I will go back.

Beautifully maintained trails and great views. Enjoyed every moment.

This a well maintained trail that has a mix of forest, lake view overlooks, bluffs and lakeshore. I great trail that is well marked and easily accessible. Parking seems limited so if going on a weekend you may want to get there early.

This is a beautiful spot to enjoy the outdoors. I plan to enjoy it scenery many more times....

There where some parts where is was a bit overgrown but overall, 4 star trail

I will have to say that this is a good walking trail and access to Lake Michigan is possible. It was a bit muddy but negotiable with ease. Great for all ages and level of ability. There are a few picnic tables close to the beginning. Enjoy!

A little muddy but that's to be expected, we brought our rain boots for just that reason. Our 7 year old had a great time.

Lots to see here. Wooded segments and a path along a gorge overlooking the lake. I went the day after a light snow shower so the preserve was dusted and very serene.
