It is okay for riding but not the best. There are a few trails that are decent but there is one big loop that would be nice but it is completely covered and pretty much not passable unless you want to just close your eyes and let your horse plow through the low bushes. The trails more by the biking trails are okay. Rather buggy. Traffic over the weekend on the lake is not ideal for horses, dogs running everyone, loud boats and seadoos, children screaming.. this park could be great for horses but it really just isn’t.

Would be a better run...

Delightful little trail through a backdune forest leading up to the lakeshore. Very pretty and peaceful. Lots of stairs make it a good workout. The trailhead has a place to lock up bikes.

such a beautiful walk through trails and up steps to find the beach at the end

Great trails beautiful woods. Highly recommend.

Lots of stairs, but worth the climb to see the view of Lake Michigan. Nice wide trail that is either gravel or wooden planks.

I’d like to try this trail again when the foliage is out. This is a super entertaining trail, with all kinds of twists and turns that make it challenging for trail riders and fun for hikers. I like narrow trails just like this. A few more hills would be nice but that’s fine! This is also well-marked and while I was the only hiker in five miles, the trail riders were very polite and friendly.

Beautiful. A good variety of different terrain.

Beautiful little trail/boardwalk leading to the beach. Wish it wasn't $6 to park, but oh well.

Nice trail. There are lots of black top trails with little elevation change. Nice views of the Grand River. Heard Sandhill Cranes for the first time this year.

This is a fantastic trail with lots of scenery. I can’t believe there were no reviews as this is a great place to hike or bike. Another benefit, during the warmer months, is there is a great kayak launch. You can kayak all the way to Lake Michigan.
We highly recommend this trail for a refreshing and relaxing hike, it is all flat.

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.

I did this trail on my road bike with my nephew who was on my mountain bike. I loved every bit of it. However it was not clearly marked near the head if the trail. We spent 20 min turned around and far away from the trail. Also, the trail is a little too bumpy in some areas for a road bike. I suggest riding in the street if you are on a road bike. Loved this ride. Great with friends or solo. I suggest hybrid, commuter, or mountain bike on the trail. Overall, great trail and good for the various activities listed.

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

Beautiful and fun trail

Woodsy. Trail use is mainly for bikes, not so much for hiking. Trail stays near roads most of the time and takes you close to homes; felt like I was wondering through someone's back yard at times. Dirt road to trailhead. Sounds: birds and cars.

My wife and I, and our dogs enjoy the hike and scenery.
