Frequently mentioned favorites
Include the Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive, Glen Haven Maritime Museum and Life Saving Station, the Dune Climb, canoe trips on the Crystal and Platte Rivers, and the biking and hiking trails - especially the new Heritage Trail for hiking and biking and the new Palmer Woods trail for mountain biking. Those trails with scenic overlooks at Inspiration Point and Pyramid Point are also popular as are the ranger-led tours and campfire programs. Many visitors enjoy stopping off for an ice cream cone and driving the backcountry roads to see the scenery and wildlife. For more information, visit the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
