Frequently mentioned favorites

include the Dune Climb, Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive, Glen Haven Maritime Museum and Life Saving Station, canoe trips on the Crystal and Platte Rivers, and the biking and hiking trails - especially the new Heritage Trail for hiking and biking, the new Palmer Woods trail for mountain biking, and those with scenic overlooks as at Pyramid Point.  Many locals enjoy stopping off for an ice cream cone, and then driving the smaller local roads to appreciate the wide range of flora and fauna in Leelanau County.  The ranger-led tours and campfire programs are also a perennial favorite.  For more information, visit the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
