I will have to say that this is a good walking trail and access to Lake Michigan is possible. It was a bit muddy but negotiable with ease. Great for all ages and level of ability. There are a few picnic tables close to the beginning. Enjoy!

A little muddy but that's to be expected, we brought our rain boots for just that reason. Our 7 year old had a great time.

Lots to see here. Wooded segments and a path along a gorge overlooking the lake. I went the day after a light snow shower so the preserve was dusted and very serene.
