Pyramid Point Trail

The Pyramid Point trail is a 2.7 mile loop, with a small spur that that climbs up to overlook Lake Michigan. As you hike you will pass through three different environments, maple-beech forest, high bluffs, and meadow. The trail does include several steep hills, but like so many other trails in Leelanau County the view makes the effort worth it.

Cool things to do: bring your dogs (as long as they are on a leash), look out over the water and try to spot the Crib (any guess what it is? – its a lighthouse in the middle of the water), and name the islands you see. When the sun is at your back look down to the water and try to spot what is left of the steamship Rising Sun.

DO NOT DESCEND THE BLUFF – it looks really fun, but in order to protect the bluff from erosion it is best to stay at the top (and it is really, really, really hard to get back up).

    This was a favorite spot that my daughter and I use to hike when she was young. We would hike it at least once a month from the time she was a toddler until she was around 14 years old. Many memories and long talks we shared here.
