As we celebrate 25 years supporting Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, we are proud of our organization with over 800 members who, in 2019, raised $122, 500 in donations and reported 13,689 volunteer hours in direct support of our National Lakeshore!
Winter in the park is also a wonderful time to explore the trails - via cross country ski, snowshoe, hiking, or even fat tire bike. Click to learn about the trails view snow reports, these will be updated weekly throughout the season.
On sale now - Our Book Celebrates the Life of the Sleeping Bear with vivid pictures, facts, helpful graphics and maps that blends art, history, and science.
Our first season has come to an end and was a great success with over 70 visitors able to use the track chair. Thank you, volunteers, without you this program would not have been possible.
Thank You to all who put in long hours of hard work to construct as well as joined us for the grand opening. Stay tuned for information about winter activities on this trail.

VIP Spotlight: Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail Grooming crew
A training session was held for new ski grooming volunteers. It consisted of a classroom session led by Kerry Kelly, Steve Young, and Matt Mohrman (NPS Volunteer Coordinator), followed by field demonstrations of the grooming equipment. The Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes are ready to groom the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail and the Leelanau Conservancy’s Palmer Woods trail.
