This was a nice hike on some well-maintained trails. The trails can be a bit confusing. Check out one of the park's maps. The paths do, at some points, parallel roads, which slightly degrades the asthetics. However, overall, it was a very nice hike.
Sleeping Bear Dunes is a unique park with fantastic lake views and interesting geography. It is nice to see lake shore areas preserved from development and set aside for use by all. This trail is well marked and quite easy to follow and it meanders through some excellent hardwood forest. Mosquitoes can be in an issue in the Spring but they tend to taper off with the heat of Summer. I would recommend a trip to "the dunes" to anyone passing through Michigan's lower Penninsula!
