Dune trail was beautiful however Devil’s Kitchen is flooded and muddy. Had climb up to the ridge and scramble over some logs. Beautiful trail but I would wait until the flooding clears and the bugs arnt as bad.

Not 5 star because of how horribly marked it was, if I didn’t have the app I would of been lost! That being said loves the trail had a lot of different terrain! Will say pretty sandy! If you take the dotted course there is a HUGE sand hill you can run down which was pretty fun!

The Dune Ridge Trail has absolutely gorgeous views of Lake Michigan, Muskegon Lake, rolling sand dunes, ponds, and forest- a really nice mix! This trail certainly has some challenges. The first half of the trail along the shoreline of Muskegon Lake is easier than the last half of the trail, which involves walking through hilly sand dunes with little to no shade. Also, along the first half of the hike, we had to maneuver around parts of the trail that were covered in water due to the current high water levels around Lake Michigan. Appropriate hiking shoes are essential for this hike, especially when trekking through the sand dunes and for parts that require scrambling around flooded areas. Make sure to bring water and a snack on this hike, too, as you’ll probably be on the trail for longer than expected due to the challenging terrain and heat. We completed this trail in 5.5 miles in just under 3 hours. This is a fun challenge of a hike with really stunning views! It’s a MUST if you enjoy a little adventure!

Really beautiful trail, but there are parts where you have to go off road and there’s bugs, or even walk through water. Still one of the better trails in the area

Beautiful trail and views. Lots of elevation changes. We had to go off trail at times due to flooding in areas but all in all a fantastic hike!

The trails are very washed out and very hard to stay on the trails. One hell of a family experience!!
