A nice walk, with some good uphill thanks to the dunes. The northern half was very wet and muddy, so wouldn't try it after a rain.

Fun trail for a walk with the family. Some big hills make for great views of Lake Michigan and the dunes. Lots of walking in the sand.

This is a great trail! Fairly easy if you are in shape. Uphill most of the way.

One of my favorite spots to hike with our dog and kindergartener.

This trail is great as it basically circumnavigates the entire 2,000 acre park, using four trails or a stretch along Lake Michigan. By doing the loop, our walk took us through forests, up and over sand dunes and just above the beaches, then back to the car by heading over the sand dunes once again.

First time to the lake shore and the wind was blowing good so the waves had a lot of white caps which made it spectacular. Loved the dunes. Mt. Randal loop trail is done by combining four trails.

This park is less than an hour from my house and is a pleasure to hike no matter what season it is. There are so many trail, you can hike a new one everyone you go. We have hiked sand dunes, marshes, and canopied trails here. Anytime you make a hike out to the beach, it is always tough finding the trail head to make it back. We have done the big loop 4 times and everything's we turn inland to early.

Warren Dunes also have some of the best camp grounds I've seen in my area. They are always clean, the staff is friendly, and there is a great separation from the primitive to the electric sites.
