This trail was better than we expected it to be. The first half of the trail is on the exposed sand dunes. There are great views of the lake from here! The second part is through a forested area. It was a good, short, easy hike with pleasant views.

If you can only do one hike in Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, do this one! A little bit of everything: woods, dunes, water; shaded and more exposed areas; beautiful in every season. Easy-to-follow trail markers.

We hiked off the loop, just along the coast because it was so amazing. Blue water with 3 tones of blue, amazing cliffs and the dunes were amazing. You feel like you are in another country. Take water and a hiking stick because the dunes are tough to walk over.

Took our first honeymoon to this area. A great hike, very sandy, and amazing dunes. Great place to visit.

Been doing this train almost every year of my life. Gorgeous views. Nice and moderately rugged. Sandy trail. Will do it again.

Great trail. Sandy pretty much the whole way. Good variety. Start In wooded area, through and over sand dunes and back into woods. Lots of up and down, but none of it extreme. Great scenery, including both Manitou islands and dunescapes. My 5 and 6 year olds did it with energy to spare. Took us about an hour and a half with lots of photo stops and water breaks.

This is an easy and scenic trail. Sandy Michigan soil is a relief for feet...
