With literally miles and miles of treasured trails meandering through forests, along cliff tops and over the famous dunes, it’s an outdoor ehtusiast's heaven. If you want some guidance, you can choose from three of the most popular trails: The Dune climb, The Empire Bluffs Trail, and the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail.
