Trekking the Sleeping Bear Dunes Heritage Trail


The Dune Climb bike parking area

We spent part of Sunday afternoon biking a portion of the magnificent Sleeping Bear Dunes Heritage Trail between Pierce Stocking Drive and Glen Haven. The approximate 10 mile round trip took us through/past a variety of lovely ecosystems including woodland, open field, wetland, and dune landscapes.  The entire trail is just over 20 miles in length.
