The Mount Baldy Beach Trail is an out and back trail that can be extended by walking along the beach in either direction. The trail offers sweeping views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline in the distance. The hike features rolling terrain through the woods with a steep scurry down the face of the dune to the beach. During high waves, it may not be possible to hike along the beach. Please use caution. - The Mount Baldy Beach Trail is open daily from 6:00 am to 11:00 pm. - Use caution when visiting Mount Baldy. The dune and shoreline are in a constant state of change from the weather and changing lake levels. Obey all trail markers and warning signs to be safe. The summit of Mt. Baldy remains closed except for ranger-led programs. - The final approach to the beach is quite steep on loose sand. It may be difficult to climb back up to the established trail. - In the winter, never walk out onto the shelf ice. The ice may not be stable, and it is possible to fall through the ice. - Free (no entrance or parking fee). - Bicycles and motorized vehicles are not allowed. - Pets are permitted on a leash (6' or shorter). - Trail is not wheelchair accessible. - Trail surface is loose sand. You will get sand in your shoes or boots. - There are year-round restrooms and a potable water source. - The lot is paved and holds 80 cars and three buses. - The Summit Trail has Restricted Access. Access to the Mount Baldy Summit Trail requires accompaniment by authorized staff. There are ranger-led daytime and sunset hikes on weekends in the summer and at other times throughout the year. Hike dates and times are on the park's website calendar and Facebook page. Tour details can also be obtained at the Indiana Dunes Visitor Center at (219) 395-1882.

short there and back again trail to the lake front. Lots of downed trees along lake front made it difficult to hike along. The summit trail is closed for preservation at the moment but I could imagine the view of the light house and Chicago would be spectacular from this perch.

Fun walk with the dogs. Especially rewarding view of the lake and a cool walk down the sand hill to the beach. The park service rates this as strenuous but if say moderate, even for the inexperienced hiker.

It was difficult to navigate to the trail from Dunewood Campgrounds. The park in general is super bike friendly. However, if wanting to hike the entirety of Indiana National Lakeshore (Now Park!) prepare to hike along the highway. We lucked out and got to hike up the Summit trail with a Ranger since the trail is currently closed due to conservation efforts.

I wouldn’t consider it a “hard” trail. It’s got a moderate uphill grade, wide rounded dune trail, not rocky. A lot of sun - very little shaded areas. It was very, very buggy in the beginning. Literally had to walk through a swarm of little (knats?). Bring /wear repellant.

Before the accidents that took place with the sink holes, as a kid growing up in the area I've climbed up Mt Baldy more times than I can remember. Hoenslty, the climb up was never fun, but the run down was great! ha. You used to be able to climb on the steep dune side. Now there is a guided hike around and up the side.

I took this trail at sunset via guided hike, and it was well worth it! the views are phenomenal! Watch for poison ivy, which is prolific.

You can still go onto this trail with guided hikes. They have them on the weekends and they also have sunset ones. I found it on the dunes website.

Closed indefinitely due to 2 deaths from natural sinkholes on the dune itself.

The trail has been closed since July, 2013 and will remain closed through the 2014 season due to safety concerns. Please visit nearby Central Beach for beach access and a fairly easy but pleasant walk through the woods from the parking lot. If you're in the area to hike, Cowles Bog Trail has it all--bring water!

The hilliest section of Allen County and Fort Wayne. This is a nice 1 hour hike.
