Trails Near The Homestead
The National Lakeshore, with its miles of trails of all difficulty levels, is right outside your door. Whether you’re looking for an afternoon stroll with the family or a heart-pounding, sweat-inducing challenge, the area has some of the best trails to be found in Northern Michigan. Two are within walking distance of the hotels, villas and homes at The Homestead: the Bay View Trail and the Sleeping Bear Dunes Heritage Trail. Others are a short drive away. You’ll need a park pass for many of them; you can purchase a pass as part of a lodging package or you can buy one at the Welcome Center or any ranger’s station. We’ll also be happy to provide you with a map when you check in. And if you’d like to try exploring the trails on a bike, on cross-country skis or on snowshoes, we can get you all set up and ready to go.
