Hiking, biking, beautiful views, and nature your thing?

Make the mile drive up the hill to Inspiration Point scenic lookout or go a mile further to hike and explore the Arcadia Dunes Baldy Trails. The high bluff dune's view of Lake Michigan makes the hike (including an accessible trail)  well worth the time! The links below provide great information on this and other local trails!
