Windy Moraine Trail is a 1.5-mile loop located opposite of Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive in Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. The interpretive trail basically climbs its namesake moraine, a nearly 300-foot high ridge, before descending back to the trailhead. Along the way are nine numbered posts that correspond to a brochure available at a trailhead map box or in advance from the MichiganTrailMaps.com website. The brochure points out everything from the “edge effect” between forests and fields to woodpecker holes to a 200-year-old maple in an effort to teach the importance of diversity in nature. This is a wonderful hike during peak fall colors in early October and an easy but fun family cross-country ski outing in the winter. You can get a description of the trail or download an interpretive brochure from MichiganTrailMaps.com at www.michigantrailmaps.com/member-detail/sleeping-bear-dunes-windy-moraine-trail/
