The 721-acre reserve has over four miles of trails that you and Fido can explore, but be aware that some trails are difficult to hike and have steep climbs. Take a hike along the Bay View Hiking Trail that takes you through the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, and offers a 5.9-mile hike on a loop style route. The Pyramid Point Trail is a smaller hike that will take you along a hilly terrain while you hike. Your dog will love the 2.7-mile hike alongside you.
