Incredible workout with a beautiful view at the top of the steps. There are benches to rest on every twenty steps or so. Saw three deer on the way back down. Take a swimsuit.

this is not a casual walk. it's a solid hike. not long but sure feels like it! the stairs are killer! I think I heard someone count 300. I made it, but it took a couple serious breaks for me. I move a lot each day, but not really work out. the trail to the beach is nice, sandy and shaded. and the beach is beautiful!! going down the stairs was much easier!

The stairs are very extreme! Hard for those physically fit. Very loose sand, ankle support shoe ware, but spray recommend! Pretty, but very treacherous up ended roots!

Nice local hike with hills and dunes and plenty of shade.

Large staircase that kills your legs leads to a pretty good view of Saugatuck. After that you can walk down the dunes all the way to Oval Beach which is nice.

The stairs will kick your butt! The top of the hill offers pretty good views of saugatuck. If you make your way down the dune you can see Lake Michigan much better. It is extremely sandy. You can make it to oval beach if you head southwest on a trail after you make it to the top of the mt. Bald head

What a workout!! 300 steps up to breathtaking view then down dune to Oval Park on Lake Michigan shore. Then road back to stairs for repeat. Serious cardio in a short run.

All steps to the top of a sand dune overlooking Saukatuck harbor on one side and Lake Michigan on the other.
