The overlook is great and easy. the log slide is a blast jump straight forward and drop 10 feet (@ your own risk) so easy just remember you gotta climb back up 4 steps forward and 3 steps back I'm in my 50's no way...More

A must see! Views with history along the way. Paved hiking trail makes it easy to get to the view atop the dunes. The hearty may choose to descend and the log slide and then climb back up, but it's steep and a bit treacherous.

We didn't make it all the way down but definitely enjoyed the views! The Dunes are amazing and you can walk along the top for a short distance. You can also hike into the dunes which is well worth it!

Hubs usually spends a lot of time at Sleeping Bear dunes and was surprised at how big were these dunes. It was an easy walk and beautiful view!!

This place is great. We did the dunes view right below the scenic overview. It's a little scared at first but as long as you use common sense it's a breathe taking view. My husband how doesn't always enjoy going off the map loved it....More
