Hike Pyramid Point Trail

Michigan Pyramid Point Trailhead

Added by Alex Harrison

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.
