Kettles in Spring

“After reading the recent Mike Terrell article [in the Record Eagle] about Kettles, my wife and I visited for the first time today. We really enjoyed ourselves and want to express our appreciation to all those involved in creating the excellent trail system. The land has wonderful features and catching it today with all of the spring flowers was special. Having the foresight to preserve it and now make it available for use are remarkable accomplishments.” – David Murphy 







To hike the Kettles Trail, view the Trailhead Page as well as you can find out more about all of the back-country trails within the Lakeshore on our Trails Page.

To learn more about how the Kettles are formed, the Sleeping Bear Dunes NPS website has a wonderful overview of the geological impact on this area. 

This trail would have not been made possible without our volunteers. To learn more about the building of the Kettles Trail, visit our Kettles Program Page. We are always looking for dedicated volunteers to help, sign up to volunteer today!
