Four multi-use trails at Albert E. Sleeper State Park are available to hikers, mountain bikers, and cross-country skiers. The park is divided by M-25 with picnic areas and beach on the north side and the 223-site modern campground and the 5 miles of trail on the south side. The most convenient trail access is from the campground between sites 66 and 68 but limited campground space requires parking in the day use area. Another parking option is the Outdoor Center.
Despite the campground receiving heavy summertime use, dense pine woodland separates the busy campground from the serene trail system. Trailblazers are offered several choices: Mill Circle Trail is a 1-mile point-to-point horseshoe-shaped trail between each end of the campground. Ridges Nature Trail, a 1.5-mile loop adjoins Mile Circle Trail. Beach Trail starts from the campground trailhead and travels due south to meet the 2.5 mile Deer Run Loop Trail. Several trails are track set for cross-country skiing.
The quiet trails of Sleeper State Park carry the user through mixed forests, open meadows, and across beautiful sand dune ridges. With the location of the park on the Saginaw Bay, its 1,000+ acres is a natural magnet for wildlife and bird life.
