Saturdays at the Lakeshore Continue - Park Rangers Offer Free Hikes
May is a great time to go on a Park Ranger-led hike at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (National Lakeshore). Flowers are blooming, birds are singing, and the new leaves are appearing, making the forests vibrant once again. While spring is in the air, a hike along one of the National Lakeshore's magnificent trails can be a great experience. Join park rangers as they share some of their favorite places during "Saturdays at the Lakeshore" this spring.
