West Beach offers a great combination of hiking and relaxing at the beach. The trails are varied and encompass many habitats. After hiking, relax and swim at the beach.
Long Lake Loop Trail (Loop 3) is the final section of the hiking trail loops at West Beach. This section is moderate in difficulty. The trail follows along Long Lake and then heads into the dunes. There is a great view of Long Lake after the initial climb. After crossing the entrance road, the trail winds through the undulating dunes and then has a steep descent into the picnic area and back to the parking lot.
Hours – Open daily from 6:00 am to 9:00 pm Central Time.
