HikingGreat!Snow

Really nice piece of dune with beach access. Kind of crowded when I went though (even though it was only 14 degrees and snowing!). I took my dog, we saw several others on the trail. The outer loop was a bit harder to see since the snow was so blown everywhere, but the main loop is easy to see due to the heavier foot traffic.

Nicely maintained. Sand in shoes but super worth it! Gorgeous forest. Perfectly shaded. Not crowded. Beautiful beach.

An awesome easy/moderate hike. Make sure to climb up the dunes into the wooded area right by the lake. The trail is well marked the whole way, and not super crowded.

Nice trail. Well marked and easy to follow with the AllTrails map. Wouldn’t really recommend this one for young kids because of the deep sand.

Great trial with hills to the beach. I love the color and sound of Lake Michigan. The way back was not marked to well and we got a little lost but found our way to the car.

This is a favorite spot of ours, and completely empty on an early Sunday morning.

Great trail which offers beautiful views, hill and an amazing view of Lake Michigan. We were visiting from out of town and it was well worth it!!

Nice trail we took Livingston down and the beach trail back. Livingston has few people, lots at the beach trail ending. Had a 3 yr old who did half and we carried her half.

It begins as an easy hike through the beautiful woods and rows of pines-even though it was late November fall and trees were bare. The climb up was challenging yet comfortable as you can take all the time needed. I choose a path to head toward the beach with a sign cautioning that it’s not a marked trail. The rolling sand dunes were fun to climb. When I got to the end I enjoyed the peaceful setting overlooking Lake Michigan. The major suggestion I would have for the park is for the state to improve its signage. The maps did not show the distance of each trail. Since I had no cell phone service in the area I could not look it up either. I look forward to returning again next season.

Great place to hike with your grandkids and my critters. The kids loved climbing the dunes and running/rolling back down.

First to Review

Nice trail to the lake. Trail is made up of sand and a little hard pack dirt but most of the trail is loose soft sand. Once on the beach we let our dog play in the water. Beautiful day in Michigan and a short nice walk with my wife and our dog Chester
