The trailhead is an easy stroll from the Spruce Knob highpoint, just head north to the secondary parking lot. This area is said to get an average of more than 13 feet of snow each year and the roads up to the summit are not maintained in the winter months, so spring and summer are best bets. We were here in June, so we got to see the best of what Huckleberry Trail has to offer.
Climbing the initial dune and hiking the subsequent Dune Trail together make up a strenuous 3.5-mile roundtrip from. The 3.5-mile route travels from the bottom of the large initial (formidable) dune all the way to the Lake Michigan shoreline and back. In order to complete the approximate 1.75-mile one-way trip, one must scale a minimum of six or seven serious dunes.
