Empire Bluff

The Empire Bluff is a land formation dune backed by mature forest that rises from lake level on Lake Michigan of about 550 feet to an elevation of almost 1100 feet. The bluff can be viewed from below by hiking along the shore of Lake Michigan from the Empire Village Beach Park or from the top by hiking the Empire Bluff Trail that originates off of Wilco Road south of the Village of Empire. Few trails in Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore lead to a more spectacular view at the end as does this short path to the edge of Empire Bluff.
