The new section of the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail from the Dune Climb to Empire is OPEN. More work will be done on the trail over the next few weeks, including new directional and way-finding signs that will be installed by Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes volunteers.
This section of the trail is really beautiful as it winds through the forest and up & down hills. Speaking of hills - there are some big ones! So be prepared to give your legs a workout on the way up and use your brakes on the way down! The trail is now 10 miles long and connects the village of Glen Haven with Empire.
