The description sates:


The Dune, several miles wide and more than twice as long, is an expanse of Golden Sand where each summer thousands visit making it the favorite playground of Northern Michigan.

–Climbing the dune, as shown here, is a popular exercise for many of the visitors, as the summit provides an outstanding view of the lake and shoreline.
