Pyramid Point Trail-Sleeping Bear Dunes

  • About

    The Pyramid Point Trail leads to a high, panoramic view of Lake Michigan, half a mile from the trailhead. This is one of the best views of the waters of the Manitou Passage and the Manitou Islands, which lie five miles offshore. For a quick jaunt, head back the way you came. For a longer hike with some extended uphill heart-pumpers, turn east from the dune overlook for a winding walk through some meadows and hardwood forests. To access the trailhead, take M-22 to Port Oneida Road, 3.7 miles north of Glen Arbor. Follow Port Oneida Road until it ends at Basch Road. Follow Basch Road east to the trailhead. The National Lakeshore charges a visitor 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.
