Cruising from dune peak to dune peak is fun, but long stretches of flat bumpy trail kill it.

Description

The trail starts out at Levering road, completely flat. You'll be kept from really cranking up your speed by constant whoops and bumps, the legacy of Michigan's lumber age. As you come around the north shore of Wycamp lake, the dunes start to increase in age.

For a couple miles, you'll have the pleasure of short, low-grade climbs followed immediately by similar descents. After you cross Sturgeon Bay Trail, the forested dunes are even more ancient, and accordingly larger. A large number of climbs here will be to steep and sandy to ride, so you'll have to get off and push for your scenic views.

At Lakeview road you have a chance to go to the beach! North of Lakeview, you get about a half-mile of fun dune-cruising, with rideable grades. After this point, though, you'll enter several miles of whoop-dominated, flat swamps. Avoid this section unless you're through-riding to Mackinaw City!
