Description

Warren Dunes State Park offers a large beach with restroom facilities and plenty of parking. Most people will visit the beach, but the more adventurous can take a 5-mile journey through wooded dunes and a massive dune blow that is sure to impress. Find the trail entrance into the woods at the end of the north parking lot. At first, the trail will be a mix of sand and dirt trail. You can get by without shoes until you reach the more forested sections. Several miles in, you'll come across an optional loop with a low grade. Hike this section in any direction or bypass and head northeast toward Lake Michigan. In a few hundred feet you'll encounter a dune blowout, a section of a dune that has receded over time, allowing various vegetation and dunes grass to establish. The panoramic views are dramatic. Exiting the blowout, walk the beach back to the parking lot.
