If only all hikes had a payoff like this one. How does a beautiful, secluded-beach sunrise on Lake Michigan sound? Even better, this hike is an easy two miles.

Quick and Easy Wisconsin Trail Hike Leads to a Secluded Beach

Somebody asks me if I want to do something like that, and I'm in the car heading there as soon as I heard the words "secluded beach."

I'm also enticed by the words, "quick and easy."

Hikers of all skill levels, this is the hike you need to take THIS summer. Just a short drive north of Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Lake Michigan is where you're headed.

Your whole family, your significant other, just you? This hike is a low-key, casual stroll through a forest, across many bridges, over some marshland, all leading you to a breathtaking beach NOT filled with hundreds of tourists.

ADDED BONUS: If you're a very early riser like me (alarm at 3:15 a.m.) you should start your hike early enough, so you can catch the most awe-inspiring sunrise on Lake Michigan

Thanks to onlyinyourstate.com, I found some great 'stuff' to add to your 'Stuff To Do This Summer' list.

This place is just 20 miles north of Milwaukee, and you'd be foolish to not make the trip to Lion's Den Trail.

Instead of looking at this magical hike through the lens of a pro photographer, take a look at the photos taken by people who were moved by the beauty they witnessed.
