You walk a up hill trail (not bad, just take your time) through a beautiful forest, and when you get to the top you're in for a treat. It's a beautiful view of Lake Michigan and well worth the walk up to the top. If you're up for a challenge walk down to the bottom!
Go to visitor's center and pay admission. Receipt must be displayed on driver's dashboard. Mostly uphill climb amongst beautiful white birch trees.

the hike wasn't bad at all, very well maintained path, however I do not suggest you wear flip flops. mostly up hill but very worth the walk for the gorgeous views. once you get to the top there are places for you to explore and rest, very peaceful and beautiful
