There are two scenic loops of flat to gently rolling trails, each about 2.5 miles long, through a forest of evergreens and hardwoods. The trail leads to a view of Lake Michigan and a wide expanse of low beach dunes. The trailhead is located on M-22 just north of Sutter Road. The National Lakeshore charges a visitor's fee of $20 per vehicle for a seven day pass or $40 for an annual pass. Mountain bikes are not allowed on any of the National Park trails. Pets must be kept on a six-foot maximum leash.
Stop by the Traverse City Tourism Visitor Center for a printed map or download a map from Michigan Trails Maps for a small fee.
