Nice trail! Beautiful views of both lakes, varied terrain, easy parking. Birch forest, meadows. Wear good shoes because the muddy/icy inclines are slippery. Would be a fun trail run if you’re going solo. My four year old had no trouble. I carried a 2.5 year old in a pack with no trouble.

Nice quick hike to Lake Michigan- beautiful view!

Really nice trail! Our 4 year old was able to do the whole loop without difficulty. BEWARE poison ivy is along the sides of the path! Wear long pants and use big spray.

It was a lovely short and scenic hike. Easy elevations changed, well maintained trail. The view of Lake Leelanau from the field is gorgeous. Great views of North Manitou Island from the overlook. There are benches scattered throughout for those wanting to linger or rest.

Great trail along M-22 between Northport and Leland. Beautiful forested path leads to an incredible lookout. We didn’t find the cave mentioned in the description, and would be interested to learn where that is. We did notice a small off-shoot leading to a fence late in the loop. It overlooked what appeared to be an old house foundation. Will do this trail again.

Nicely groomed trail, well marked. Could be good for trail running. Watch for poison ivy on the sides of the trail. Beautiful overlook of the Manitou islands and Pyramid Point.

Short trail with an overlook of Lake Michigan and South Manitou Island. Very rooty, so not good for trail running, but good for a quick hike!

Trail was very well marked! Has a great look out! Very quick, easy, and fun! Features field, forest, and views of water! Highly recommended!

Absolutely amazing trail. Super easy walking. The lookout point over Lake Michigan was breathtaking!! To finish the hike off well, we sat on the bench in the open field of wildflowers and enjoyed the evening breeze! The experience was so tranquil and refreshing.

Really nice morning hike or trail run especially for those with kids. Small elevation changes, different terrain and scenery options, and wild raspberries if you hike in late summer.

Beautiful! My dog and I did the trail no problem and the views are incredible. Even saw a pair of Bald Eagles!

Great for a quick trip. Great views. Many wildflowers.

Great short hike with a nice variety of views. Trail is clear and well marked and the overview of the lake is gorgeous. Great spot for birding as well!

Beautiful overlook!
