If you’re looking for lots of hiking opportunities, you’ll want to explore this Ottawa Sands Park as well as its neighbor to the north, North Ottawa Dunes park.

The park includes forested dunes, an 80-acre inland lake, river views and wetlands.

As an added bonus – there’s a great playground just across the street in Ferrysburg’s Coast Guard Park and a Lake Michigan Beach just down the road at North Beach Park.

Hiking Trail Details

The park includes forested dunes, an 80-acre inland lake, river views, and wetlands.

Most hikers like to hike around the lake - that's about a 2-mile hike.

One big draw is the bald eagle nest perched high in a tree.

The sandy walking trail is not shaded and is mostly flat.
