Hike through lush hardwood forest, enjoy panoramic views of Lake Michigan, and take a stroll on the beach, while visiting Green Point Dunes Natural Area.

The trail then follows the ridegeline of the bluff down to a staircase leading to the beach. Completing the loop requires some steady uphill hiking. .
