The Red Trail takes hikers to Old Baldy, the park's tallest sand dune. An observation platform atop the dune provides sights of Lake Michigan and Clark Lake. Found along the Red Trail, is the park's living history village depicting lifestyles of the Middle Woodland Indians, residents of the region in 100 A.D. A replica area of the Oneota people (1300-1400 A.D.) is also found on the trail. Both peoples were skilled at fishing. Learn more about these ancient inhabitants at the Whitefish Dunes' nature center. Cross-country skiers use the scenic route in winter.

Directions: From Sturgeon Bay, WI, Travel northeast for nine miles along Hwy. 57 / 42. Turn east on Clark Lake Road. Proceed miles to the park entrance. The trail starts alongside the interpretive center.
