National Park
“Stop by Chef’s In for sandwiches before heading to the dunes for a day! Lots of hiking and sightseeing. Pyramid Point is one of our favorite spots along the coast.”

National Park
“Sleeping Bear Dunes is as old as continental ice sheets and as young as the 1970 Establishment Act that set aside the Lakeshore for preservation of the natural resources and for public use. The most prominent features, and those for which the park is named, are the perched dunes above Lake Michigan. These immense sand dunes are “perched” atop the already towering headlands that are glacial moraines. The dune overlooks at the Sleeping Bear, Empire and Pyramid Point bluffs are about 400 feet above Lake Michigan. With 65 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline and numerous inland lakes and streams, the park is wonderfully water oriented.”

“You'll love the view from No. 9 Lookout but don't go down cause you might not make it back up! Be sure to grab a map as you arrive. It will guide you through and educate you along the way. A National Park Pass is required to access. ”

“We could get lost in all the beautiful locations throughout the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore. There is a short uphill hike to access Pyramid Point but we think it is worth it! ”

“This is a must do for visitors. Not for the faint at heart. It looks easier than it is. You can get to Lake Michigan from the dunes, but it is about a 3 mile hike. Kids love the dunes!”

Beach
“This used to be a secret little spot, but you will have to battle some crowds. Worth it though. Walk around the first lake you come to, North Bar, and head over the dunes to spectacular Lake Michigan. Restrooms are a ways from the beach. The walk in is about 1/4 mile, maybe a little more.”

“If you are looking for an afternoon in the great outdoors we recommend visiting Empire Bluff Overlook. The hike is only 1.5 miles round trip but it is hilly terrain. ”

“This is one of my favorite hikes! It overlooks Lake Michigan and Empire Beach on Lake Michigan. Watch out for poison ivy. It is best to stay on trails because there is poison ivy everywhere! ”

“The Dune Climb is eight miles north of Empire off M 109. Only for the most physically fit, climbers are rewarded at the top with views of Glen Lake. There are three hiking trails in this vicinity which offer various degrees of difficulty...Dunes Trail (3.5 mile difficult), Loop Trail (2.8 mile moderate) and the Duneside Accessible Trail (1.8 mile easy).”
