This is a beautiful trail. The stairs left me out of breath but it's a great workout. I love that it ends at the beach. This is one of my favorite places in the area.

While the journey is as good as the destination....the final destination here is spectacular! We plan at least a couple hours playing in Lake Michigan/beach before hiking back. Hike is not strenuous though.

One of my favorite hikes in West Michigan ~ great forests, lookout, and small secluded beach access.

pea gravel path, a variety of views, forest, dunes, and the lake. Much higher traffic than expected.

Easy trail on Boardwalk. Stairs were a nice addition to add a small bit of challenge. Would definitely go again when we have time to stay on the beach
