The drive is spectacular and one is awestruck by the dunes. It would be a shame to go to the area and no see Sleeping Bear Dunes.

We went with a bunch of married couples/friends. The weather was amazing and it was really sunny. We didn't really take the trails, but we did go down the largest dune. Going down the dunes was really scary because the dunes are incredibly steep. It literally feels like you can flop forward and tumble into the water - but you... More

We came hear with our ten year old daughter. It was a hard hike but we had so much fun! Temps dropped about 20 degrees by the water & it became foggy, which felt great after an hour hiking in the hot sand & sun. Everyone was friendly & the views & scenery are breathtaking. Our ten year old made... More

We took our three kids on the trail from the Dune Climb, through Glen Haven, to the town of Glen Arbor and back. It's about 9.5 miles, very flat and scenic through the woods. Our 10 year old was able to bike all of it, our other two we had attached to our bikes (tag-alongs). Highly recommended.

Walk your bike if the hills are to much but don't let them stop you from enjoying a wonderful trail.

Great way to exercise, especially after a 2.5 hour drive and the views from the dunes close to the lake are gorgeous!!

If you're thinking about visiting Sleeping Bear, you probably already know its national reputation. Lovely place to walk through any time of the year. Don't forget to visit Little Glen and Glen Lakes while you're in the area.

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!
