Bay to Bay Trail Planning

Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is studying the possibility of a new water trail and backpacking trail that would run the length of the National Lakeshore from Platte Bay to Good Harbor Bay. This proposed Bay to Bay Trail would offer backcountry camping for multi-day wilderness experiences.


Adopt-A-Trail

With over 100 miles of designated trails on the mainland, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore offers a wide variety of hiking experiences and activity levels. Our Trail Patrollers walk their favorite trail at least once a month picking up trash and removing obstacles like down branches from the trail. They report large problems to the Park Roads and Trails group. Pick your favorite trail and join us.


Adopt-A-River

The Platte and Crystal Rivers flow through Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.  Thousands of people enjoy canoeing, kayaking, and tubing down these rivers during the summer months. Our River Rangers float the rivers on a regular basis to pick up trash and report safety issues. If you enjoy the river, why not help out?

 


Adopt-A-Beach
