Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (National Lakeshore) will reopen portions of the Alligator Hill Trail on Thursday, November 19, 2015. The trail has been impassable since a severe storm blew down thousands of trees on August 2, 2015.  National Park Service crews and National Lakeshore volunteers have completed work on the Easy Loop, Advanced Loop, Islands Lookout, and Big Glen Lookout.  Over 2,800 trees have been cleared on six miles of trail. Clearing of approximately 1,000 more trees from the two-mile Intermediate Loop and trail access from Forest Haven Drive will take place in the spring of 2016.
