Forgotten Skills
Warren Dunes State Park


Have you ever wondered how the Indians of Michigan lived through the cruel, cold winter months just a few generations ago? Today we depend on natural gas, central heating, electric blankets, heated cars and expensive down jackets…and we still complain about the cold and yearn for Florida. Join the Harbor Country Hikers as we share a little about how the Indians survived–and thrived–in a frozen land. Then, use your imagination as we hike through the same forests they lived in for millennia.

Directions: From Red Arrow Highway, enter the Warren Dunes main entrance and take the first right after the gate. A parking area with picnic shelter will be on you left about half a mile up the road.  You are required to visit the Pass Kiosk (in the roundabout left of the gate) if you do not already have a Michigan Recreation Passport. Share a ride if you do have a pass.
Estimated Presentation Time: 12-1/2 minutes
Estimated Total Time: 2 hours
Hiking Distance: 2 miles
Physical Difficulty: Moderate, with a good chance of dunes. Be prepared for cold and damp weather.
Hike Leaders: Stacey LaRocco, vice president, and Pat Fisher, president, Harbor Country Hikers.
