Due to time and others we just went out and back, was a nice short hike the incline might be a little more strenuous for some people.

Nice easy climb up to the point, absolutely spectacular view, sat a while, then confused by the complete lack of signage decided just to double-back rather than descend a narrow, seemingly risky, unmarked path. Could use some better info there. Otherwise still well worth the single route up and back.

Hiked this last week. We just went to the bluff and then back. Incline all the way to bluff. View was awesome! You can see North Manitou Island and North Manitou Shoal Lighthouse. Definitely worth the walk.

Gorgeous early morning hike with my Aussie! Really humid and some flies along the lakeshore, but other than that couldn’t ask for a better tart to our day.

Not sure how this trail isn't ranked higher. Perfect hiking trip with a scenic payoff.

Really pretty views. We were there in late March and didn’t know what to expect. Ended up catching a sunny say and ended up pleasantly surprised by a fantastic view of a wintey/spring-mixed Lake Michigan!

One of the best views you'll see of Lake Michigan. The Dune puts you 260 feet almost straight above the lapping waters of Lake Michigan. The lookout point is about 0.6 miles from the trailhead. The .6 mile hike will be tough to some since it's a pretty good incline. However, the trail does offer wooden steps which makes it easier and there's no need to rush. relax and enjoy the quit and peaceful nature and when you get to the top, you'll be thankful that you made the hike. Check out the video I shot, video was shot on my GoPro Hero 4 sessions. https://youtu.be/gtxLWxdoV3k

Fun hike with the kids. More than manageable outside of them wanting to continually go up and down the narrow steep dune hike to a beautiful overlook!

I would've rated this above Empire Bluff Trail, but it is more of a challenging hike! The hike to the lookout is where you gain a good chunk of your elevation. Gorgeous, gorgeous views & more secluded areas when its a highly trafficked day.

Great trail with beautiful views of the lake and manitou islands. Unique terrain with sand dune, meadow and forest. Would rate as easy

Beautiful view. Perfect for snowshoeing or hiking. Uphill but not too bad

Great views and lots of different paths to take. The only thing that keeps is from 5 stars is how dang busy it gets.

Pretty trail! Be careful if taking small children. The view from the top is beautiful, but I could have enjoyed it more if not worrying about them watching their step!

Awesome trail. Winter hike was beautiful

This is a great trail that allows you to see a few different types of scenery; meadows, forest & sand dunes. There is an uphill to the scenic view but it is worth it for the beautiful views. From the top you can see the sand dunes, Lake Michigan, the Manitou islands & if you are luck on a clear day South fox island. It is a beautiful hike. Driving through Onieda Point to get there is pretty too!

Easy to moderate hike. Great hike to an amazing view of Lake Michigan - only 0.6 miles. Well worth the walk. We hiked the meadow loop. Beautifully wooded hike with well marked trails.

Gradual slope, easy to moderate hike with beautiful view at the overlook. Very nice vista of Lake Michigan with great view of North and South Manitou Islands and South Fox Island.

Hiked from the parking lot up S Baush rd - never found the trail.
Ended up going back to the parking area and taking the out and back trail (easy) to the point.
The views we're fabulous! If we had more time I would have ventured down the dune to the water.

Fun hike to the top of a dune with Great Lake Michigan views. It's an uphill hike that's worth the effort.
