Snowshoe or ski the Sleeping Bear Dunes

On the lip by jonwilli The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore offers guided snowshoe hikes every Saturday during January and February. Hikes begin at the Philip A. Hart Visitor Center on Highway M-72 at the edge of the village of Empire at at 1 PM and you can call the Visitor Center at 231-326-5134, ext. 328 to make a reservation and check here for more about skiing & snowshoeing trails in the Sleeping Bear Dunes.

We have to point out that most of the trails in the Lakeshore are well marked and easy to navigate, so if you can’t make a guided tour, don’t let that slow you down!

    I just wanted to say how much my sister, her husband, my niece and I enjoyed our snowshoe hike last winter. We had a wonderful park ranger who showed us animal footprints in the snow and what animal they belonged to — we also saw bear prints in the driveway of our home that backs up to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park!
