Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive


Take a pretty spin through the park’s beach, dunes and Maplewood forests with a cruise along this 7.1-mile scenic drive. There are 12 stops along the way, with hiking trailheads and overlooks. Pack a lunch or snack for Picnic Mountain Picnic Area, with a sweeping look across dunes (stop No. 3) and North Bar Overlook and Picnic Area. If you only make one stop, make it the Lake Michigan overlook (stops 9 and 10) with stellar views down 450-foot dunes.
