Amazing 2.8 mile hike through sand dunes with native grasses and view of Lake Michigan. 

The Sleeping Bear Point Trail is a 2.8 mile loop through the sand dunes with amazing views of Lake Michigan and South Manitou Island. There is a 0.5 mile spur hike from the trailhead to the Lake Michigan beach. It is less strenuous than the hike from the Dune Climb to Lake Michigan.

Great loop!

Gets pretty hot on the dunes during the summer months, but shouldn't be any problem on this loop! Its not too far and isn't too strenuous.
