“Run over sand dunes on a wooden cordwalk with spectacular views of Lake Michigan”— Ricky Holzer
Heading north from the nature center, you'll circle a big depression in the sand and have occasional views of Lake Michigan on the left where there aren't trees in the way. At the end of the north section, there's a spur trail leading to an overlook of the lake.
Heading south from the nature center, you can take the Creeping Juniper Nature Trail, which has interpretive signs to introduce you to the variety of flora that thrive in the dune environment, such as creeping juniper. You'll instantly notice that, unlike desert dunes, these dunes are completely covered in dune grass and more rounded thanks to the wind erosion resistance granted by the plants. Depending on the season, you may also see wildflowers growing. After connecting back with the main cordwalk, the trail continues south to the campground. Short spurs along the cordwalk lead to viewpoints of the dunes.
