The trailhead is located at the base of The Dune Climb. Currently the trail segment from the Dune Climb to Glen Arbor is approximately 5 miles and is open for use.
The Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail (SBHT) is a hard-surfaced, multi-use trail that provides a safe, non-motorized, multi-use transportation alternative connecting the Lakeshore’s main visitor destinations with Glen Arbor and Empire. The SBHT will give walkers, runners, wheelchair users, bicyclists, cross-country skiers, baby strollers, and rollerbladers a safe, enjoyable, and car-free way to access and explore the Lakeshore and neighboring communities. Visit the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore website for more information about the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail.
