This is a gorgeous beach. I highly recommend under one condition if you have a lot of things to take to the beach it's a long walk to walk in. This is a beach where you bring a back pack at most and that's it. It's usually not to busy and it's beautiful.

Great hiking, but the trails are poorly marked. We had a map and are experienced hikers, but went the wrong direction many times!

This is a great place! The trails are fantastic! What a great work out! When you get to the beach, the view is gorgeous. Be warned, you'll get some great exercise so I wouldn't advise bringing a back load of stuff with you or, a stroller. The trails are, well... trails...roots, sand, sticks, etc. I tripped a few times because... More

Manageable parking area with tree covered picnic tables. Hiked the north trail to beach, walked the beach down to the south end and hiked back on the south trail.

I have been coming here almost every summer for 20 years. Always a fun ride especially through the woods. Interesting info about the lost city of Singapore. Guides are always great. If you have been on any other dune ride this is totally different but just as fun. Give it a try!

Nice trails through the woods leads to a lovely view of Lake Michigan. We only did one trail because we had our dogs and one is a 3 month old puppy so I wasn't sure how she could handle it, but she loved it! The trail was easy and very enjoyable. The beach was stunning. I would definitely go back... More

Many steps to climb with a probable great view, if the sky would not have been so overcast. It would be nicer, if the top would have a pleasant place to rest and relax after the strenious climb.
