The map is deceiving. There is no paved walkway and some of the walkway is pretty steep. So anybody that is uneasy on their feet or in a wheelchair it doesn't work. The art was interesting a few pieces were really nice. Only worth it...More

What a beautiful place for an art trail. Quiet, peaceful, well groomed trails, with a map telling where to find the art. Then you can enjoy some time at the beach when you finish.

I wish this site were better advertised. It's such a gem and is worthy of more Sleeping Bear Dunes and Traverse City visitors. Spectacular art is incorporated into wooded trails and bay-side. The effect is lovely, peaceful, and inspiring. There's not a huge sign, so...More

This is a pretty path through the woods with a number of stops. At each stop is a work of art with a description and artist information. Each piece was unique and interesting. It was a pleasant way to spend an hour or so. The...More

You can snowshoe if there is enough natural snow that makes it way through the trees.
