“The quintessential introductory loop at Saugatuck Dunes State Park through woods on sandy trail sections with a view.”— Zander Göpfert
Ticks, flies, and mosquitoes present in the wooded sections, especially when it's warm.
After a mile, head west toward the lake on the View to Lake Trail for the rewarding view and an opportunity to break out a picnic or enjoy the water.
From the lakeshore, head back the way you came with the option to take the North Trail: Outer Loop (White) to the south (shown here) or retrace your steps. Just know you have the one climb before you arrive back at the trailhead and parking area.
Check out the Beach Trail for another great option coming in under two miles from start to finish.
