Indiana Dunes State Park consists of 2,182 acres of primitive, beautiful, historic, and amazingly unique Hoosier landscape. It lies at the north end of State Road 49 in Porter County and includes more than three miles of beautiful beach along Lake Michigans southern shore. In the early 1900s scientists, recreationists, and nature enthusiasts, recognizing the value and potential of the Indiana dunes area, fought to have the region preserved. As a result, in 1925, the State Park was established.

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.
