Anchoring the southern end of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in Benzie County is Old Indian Trail. Many hikers bypass this area of Sleeping Bear Dunes for the dramatic scenery found at places like Empire Bluffs or Pyramid Point. But this trail can provide access to a beautiful beach and a rare escape from the summer crowds encountered elsewhere in Michigan's most popular national park. Old Indian Trail is a pair of loops and a spur to Lake Michigan. Following the perimeter of the loops out to the beach and back would be a 3-mile, one to two-hour trek. Overall Old Indian is an easy walk along a wide path. Black Arrow Loop is by far the more interesting of the two as it dips and climbs a series of old beach dunes now forested. Even though it is not groomed or tracked, Old Indian is also popular in the winter with cross-country skiers.
