Hike along the shore of Whitefish Dunes State Park

5328 Schauer Road - Search Nearby - Added by Andy Merkel

Breathtaking views on the shores of Lake Michigan, this state park has endless amounts of trails for every adventurer!

This specific trail is the shoreline from Whitefish Dunes to Cave Point County Park. This trail will take you approximately 30-60 minutes roundtrip depending on how much you explore or want to view the sights! 

From the parking lot, walk forward toward the beach and turn toward the left (going North), and follow the shoreline path all the way until you get to Cave Point County Park. This area is the lesser known area and somewhat more scenic than Cave Point. Come here during sunrise or sunset for a real treat! 

You will be amazed as you walk along the shoreline
