Beautiful walk along Lake Michigan with a view of downtown Chicago in the distance. Bring beach chairs or towels. There are flushable toilets at the main entrance. The sand was white and very soft. No shoes are necessary on the beach. The sand dunes are beautiful.

I have only done 1 mile of this trail many times, which includes the part with all of the stairs. But the views when you get up there are amazing. You have a diverse hiking trail with great views. Great for families! Beautiful beach.

Was very decent hike. Especially when you take your kids. If you doing it during the summer time make sure you're prepared, and grab mosquito repellent and water of course.

If you can get past the smokestacks, this place is amazing. The dunes are pretty awesome. Where did all the mosquitoes come from?
