“A complete hike through the dunes with sections of gravel trail, raised boardwalk, staircases, and beach access.”— Zander Göpfert
That said, if you're able, continuing through the network of raised boardwalks and viewpoint decks makes for a fun day trip. Bring a picnic or towels in the warmer months to enjoy the easy water access.
Look for an optional left turn shown here that heads down toward the beach and the pit toilets. Otherwise, head right (north) up along the beach for a flat stroll and quick loop through a brushy section of low-lying dune with access to a couple spurs down to the beach.
After enjoying the lakeshore, retrace your steps up the staircases and along the Gravel Connector to head back to the parking area.
