These trails go around a landfill that has been filled in. The trail is well marked and there are a lot of options. It is not wilderness hiking as you can often see houses/roads and hear traffic, but the trees are very pretty and it was very leisurely, enjoyable hike.

No need for hiking shoes. Running shoes will do fine. Stair climb leads to beautiful views, but not much else to explore.

The trail is beaitiful and moderately challenging. There are a lot of veering off that are unmarked. We took 12 to 14 and looped back around but somehow never saw the 13 mark. It was an adventure and we loved it! Dunes for sure.

Great hike up the boardwalk, and if you feel adventurous take the boardwalk ramp down and into the woods. Great hike!

Great trail. Beautiful views between the woods and the dunes. Steep climb up the dunes from the beach, but other than that a pleasant hike.

Beautiful hike. Great fall colors

Trail head for the south trail was on the Livingston trail. We walked the trail, my wife and I and we both found the trail pleasantly nice until we got to the sand dunes, this is were the moderate rating is earned. Though not to bad for me, I rested a few times going up the trail. The entire trail was sand, either hard pack with dirt and the loose stuff was by the lake. We enjoyed this trail and would recommend it.

Beautiful hike! Caught the sunset with my dogs on the beach, but next time I won't forget my headlamp for the hike out in the pitch black!

Awesome hiking trails!

Wish it was a little longer and more views of the lake. But a nice walk that gets your heart rate up

Beautiful scenery, nice short hike with lots of elevation changes. Lots of stairs..... Good cardio workout....

This is our favorite "hike to Lake Michigan" trail. Beach is usually private when we go in September on a 70 degree or more day (sunny).

Love this trail ~ open dunes, forest, and beach access! Great dunes along the way & at the beach. Definitely earned its "Moderate" rating!

The end goal is a beauty it was pretty tough.

short, well marked trail, unpaved. steps would be biggest challenge if out of shape, take your time and enjoy, beautiful woods.

The trail is nicely taken care of. Finding the entrance was a little rough for me, but I believe that was because of where I parked.

One quick note: if you aren't that in shape take the trail in a counter clockwise rotation. Doing it clockwise leaves a lot of steep dunes on the back half of your hike.

quite a beautiful spot with enough graduated hill climbs to make it interesting and excellent views of Lake Michigan.

great stair climb and trails in back

Easy hike. Can have wet areas in the spring. Watch out for bikes on the narrow areas especially on the weekends. Mostly shaded. Well marked and maintained.

Amazing views if running at sunrise when getting back on top of the hill. Stairs give your legs a good warm up for the various elevations. Nice short track and it can be extended by staying on the circular track. All branches are clearly marked.

Great view of the holland pier.

Great view from the top! Also some neat trails off to the sides with various elevations and a nice variety of trees and plants. I would recommend sticking to the inner (more south eastern) loops of the trails, unless you like the idea of hiking right next to a paved private drive.

Well groomed forest trail through the dunes. Easy walk, some hills. Great for all ages.

Easy hike. It was relatively flat and an amazingly well-marked network of trails.

Stairs, stairs and more stairs. I took my dog on this trail and even he was pooped after going up the initial stairway. Great quick hike though. It only took 30-45 minutes to complete.
