Maple Bay Natural Area

This trail descends a wooded bluff to where many dune zones, including dune swale complexes, are passed on the way to a popular beach. A one mile trip will bring you to beautiful beach with a view of Lake Michigan’s East Bay. Reverse your direction one mile back to the parking area. Your trip can be extended with a walk on the beach where you can find Petoskey Stones and Leland Blue Stones.
