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

Very pretty trail with access to Lake Michigan. Lots of stairs! We came in November and it was still very beautiful.

Great hike. We went on a beautiful day with not many other people on the trail. A lot of stairs so be ready to tackle those. If you have kids, there is a small section where you may want to hold their hands because even though it's not really a cliff, it's fairly steep on both sides of a ridge you walk on. The end of the trail is the reward when you walk on the beach. Don't miss the meadow loop that goes off the beach as well if you still have the energy. You do have to pay a fee to park your car.
