Great hike with my 3 daughters ages 13, 11 and 7. They all did great and it was challenging in areas but they handled it. it took an hour and a half round trip but we could've walked longer. Bugs weren't too bad. beautiful scenery with a creek and many forms of wildlife.

I hiked this trail in mid September. The corridor of the trail is a little tight with overgrowth, mainly stinging nettles. Be prepared with mosquito spray, as the trail follows the little calumet river, and it is a haven for them. All in all, it's a nice little trail for access to the river, mainly to hike. You can do a little trail running, but mountain bike are not allowed.

Good place to walk your dog. Really pretty and quiet.

Beautiful trail. I saw an owl and other wildlife. Peaceful. Some parts of the trail have steep drop offs on one side into the stream below so heads up.

The trail was beautiful and offered a lot of spots to climb on trees and see wildlife. Especially loved how hidden it was!

3 miles there & back. Flat trail, but erosion is a problem. Hard to walk with 2 people in places. Parking is generous at the 450E side. Sometimes the 600E side is closed. No reason given.
This is a quiet trail right by the Little Calumet River. It's popular in the Spring with wildflower lovers. Fishing is also very popular. Mosquitoes are a big problem with the warm weather, so bring your spray!

Beautiful quiet trail. Spotted heron 5 times along with many frogs that plopped in the river as I walked by. Watch out for patches of eroded trail, some areas were precariously close to a 12 foot drop off. And by all means, remember your bug spray.

I grew up on this trail and it gets better every year. Gorgeous, quiet and beautiful. The address is Chesterton not Michigan city on the west entrance. You can fish also with a license. I hope you all enjoy it.

The map is wrong. The trail head is at the intersection of 450 E and 1300 N.

Nice trail. Some erosion along river.

A hidden gem! Gorgeous spring wildflowers and a great spot for fishing and solitude. The trail is not rugged but there are a few spots where it is undermined by the Little Calumet River so watch your step.
