Closed indefinitely due to 2 deaths from natural sinkholes on the dune itself. You can still go onto this trail with guided hikes.

I took this trail at sunset via guided hike, and it was well worth it! the views are phenomenal! Watch for poison ivy, which is prolific.

You can still go onto this trail with guided hikes. They have them on the weekends and they also have sunset ones. I found it on the dunes website.

The trail has been closed since July, 2013 and will remain closed through the 2014 season due to safety concerns. Please visit nearby Central Beach for beach access and a fairly easy but pleasant walk through the woods from the parking lot. If you're in the area to hike, Cowles Bog Trail has it all--bring water!
