Nice drive
Jul 2021
After a hike on the Good Harbor Bay Trail, I went through the Pierce Stocking scenic drive and went to several of the overlooks. Completely worth it. One overlooked the dunes from a distance. Then there was an area where you could climb down closer to the steep dunes. There was a sign warning people that being rescued costs $3000. It looked really scary so there was no way I was getting close to the edge. Wasn't too crowded on the road or any of the stops.

Dunes and views
Aug 2021
What started off with hesitation to pay the $25 fee for a private vehicle turned into a wonderful morning for our family of five with kids ages 4 to 8. It is a pleasant drive on well-maintained roads. There are several beautiful viewpoints. At one location we were able to hike around a portion of the dunes on trails. The highlight, by far, was the Lake Michigan Overlook (#9 and #10 on the provided map and marked at the entrance). After a short walk, the view was absolutely stunning, the dunes were a blast to play on, it was fun to watch people test their bravery on the steep drop towards the lake, and there were lots of great photo opportunities.

Enjoyed the drive & loved the scenic viewpoints. Amazing views of the dunes along the beach. Lots of folks, but always able to get parking at the pulloffs.

Nice Picnic at Lake Michigan Overlook
Jul 2021
My wife and I enjoyed the 2.8ish mile Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive. I can read a map decently, but couldn't find a link between the map given to us at the ranger station to the numerical 'pull outs' on the drive. We subsequently unintentionally passed by the Dunes Scenic Overlook and the short one mile hike to Sleeping Bear Dunes Overlook. Nonetheless, we had great stops at the Glen Lakes Overlook and Lake Michigan Overlook. We had a nice picnic at the latter overlook.

We stayed in traverse city little over an hour drive, the scenic drive was breathtaking every stop is informative and the overlook is a short climb but well worth it!

There are several places to get out of your car and enjoy the amazing, beautiful views. There is a beautiful view of Glen Lake and Lake Michigan.

Beautiful drive
Jun 2021
My husband and I were traveling around Lake Michigan. We took this drive while visiting Sleeping Bear Dunes. This is a beautiful drive with several scenic stops. Be sure to take the walk to the top of the dune at the Lake Michigan overlook. It’s a pretty short walk with the end being up an incline in sand. It’s pretty easy though. The dune is huge! And I can’t believe how many people were going down and trying to climb back up!

Nice drive

It has 3-4 stopping points with very scenic overlooks. Some trails begin from here. Recommend going before 11AM to avoid lines at the entrance.

Just beautiful views and a great walk around

This trail is wonderful - you can drive up to overlooks and take short walks to the views. Silver looks are just simply gorgeous. There are rangers to give you guidance and information at all of the other looks.
