Good workout with all the steps. Lovely, quiet woods. We didn't meet lots of people. Does not have much a view of either lake.

We missed a trail I guess and never made it to the top to see the views. No color yet either. Nice rather rigorous climb though.

Beautiful view of Lame Michigan from the top. Not at all crowded. Many many steps before you reach the beach. If you don't like steps try another beach

Great little place to get in touch with nature. Quiet and grounded is how you will feel after playing around here.

Took a beautiful walk in the snowy woods in the sanctuary woods second week in February. Now I know why they call sanctuary woods. It was very peaceful and beautiful.

If climbing stairs suits you, this is the place to go. I've never been up them due to a game leg, but I know many who have. The views from the top include Lake Macatawa and Lake Michigan along with the forested dunes. My wife...More

We may be preferential since we are located close by. They have some picnic areas around the base, two small streams flow towards Macatawa. The stairs can be daunting, but once at the top it's fairly easy circle. Some different trails head off, one going...More
