Winter is Here at Sleeping Bear Dunes

We have had early lake effect snow at the Sleeping Bear Lakeshore and the Pierce Stocking Drive is now closed for the season. The road is able to be reached via cross country skiing, snowshoe, or hiking but will remain closed to motor vehicles until spring 2020. 

With a little more snow, the Friends will begin grooming trails around the park, including the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail as early as the weekend of November 16th, 2019, depending on the continued snowfall. 

To sign up for our trail grooming reports, email: info@friendsofsleepingbear.org with the headline “Request for Winter Trail Reports” and you will be put on our list!

Stay Tuned for our updated Winter Trail Page in the next week.
