Pyramid Point is a near 180 degree lookout point of Sleeping Bear Dunes and North and South Manitou Islands with incredible views of Lake Michigan and the dunes. 

Beginning at the trailhead, the 2.8 mile round trip takes you on a gravel/sand trail up 570 feet. The trail slowly winds uphill until you hit an opening at the top that looks out at the Sleeping Bear Dunes and down on Lake Michigan.

Its got some elevation gain to it so you might be breathing a bit heavy at the top, but the views out over Lake Michigan are worth it. Do yourself a favor and hike it, you won't regret it.

First and foremost, to get to this trailhead you need to drive down a 2-mile, one lane dirt road that is quite steep.
