Treat Farm Trail is a 1.1-mile walk along a forested old road to the historic Treat Farmstead and then to the edge of Empire Bluff for a panoramic view of Lake Michigan. The adventurous can then climb Old Baldy to a nearly 360-degree vista of the Great Lake and surrounding landscape or carefully thread their way along the edge of the perched dunes to the observation deck at the end of the Empire Bluff Trail. This hike begins across Norconk Road from the Tweddle Farm, now used to house the park's seasonal employees, passes through the Treat Farm and then graces you with specular watery views that Sleeping Bear Dunes is so well known for. Combining Treat Farm Trail with Empire Bluff Trail would be a semi-loop of 3.2 miles that would leave you 1.2 miles from where you parked your vehicle. That includes 200 yards along M-22, a busy road in the summer. In the winter this trail leads to an interesting afternoon on skis or snowshoes.
