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

Long hot sandy walk, but worth it! If you know the legend, better, amazing views. Had know idea we were up that high, only try the dune if you are in very good shape, or have wings....

We climbed the dunes(which are huge) and walked the beaches close to LAkeshore Inn. We ate at the only restaurant/bar/grocery/drug store within walking distance.

Amazing place. Various trails and spots to view lake. One place you can sit on the dunes as long as you wish. Be careful going down though, saw many people struggling to climb back up. Excellent map and info. when entering the park.

Well planned out trail from Glen Arbor to the Dune Climb. The best 5 miles you'll ride in our area. An Additional 5 miles of trails will be ready in July. The new trail will link Glen Arbor with Empire & the Dune Climb.
