Description

As you cross the Grand Calumet River bridge going north, the landscape changes dramatically from black oak savanna to massive sand dunes and ponds. It looks like a another planet. More sand than you can imagine!

Short Run: About 1.1 miles from the Paul Douglas Visitor Center parking lot.
