Bayview Hiking and Ski Trail

8 miles of hilly hiking and cross country ski trails divided into loops.

Hiking the Bay View trail gives you several beautiful vistas of Lake Michigan, the farms, and North and South Manitou Islands. Lookout Point gives a panoramic view of Lake Michigan and the surrounding countryside. The trail along the edge of the woods on top of the bluff overlooks fields of wildflowers and former farmland with Lake Michigan in the background. The hike to the overlook is about 0.5 miles from the trailhead. Visit the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore website for more information and to see a trail map.
