I love running this trail but it isn't kept clean over the winter. It's great if you cross country ski! I like starting at Forest Haven Round, running to Glen Haven through the camp ground and then on to the Dunes!

Whether you want to hike a wooded, sandy, open field, hilly, flat, watery trail, this place has it. We hiked the Aligator Hill Trail. Fantastic trail for all levels. Beautiful wooded trail that gives you a unbelievable view of Lake Michigan.

The Sleeping Bear heritage trail offers an awesome bike ride from Glen Arbor to the Dune Climb. It also has the uncanny ability to be down-hill both ways.

The Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail is new paved bike trail that stays almost completely away from the road. Wanders past the Dunes..Up and down hills. Lots of people but not crowded.beautifully designed and executed. Lots of rental bike places. Apparently it is groomed for winter sports.

Beautiful connecting bike ride between Sleeping Bear Dunes and Glen Arbor. The percent grade of the trail was no problem, only small up and downs and only 5 or so miles!

The Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive has some great overlooks----especially just before sunset! Not to be missed.
