Description

At the north end, the trail starts at the Cowles Bog South Access (Greenbelt Trail) parking lot located at U.S. Highway 20 and Mineral Springs Road. There is a porta-potty, but no potable water source. This is also the western end of the Calumet Bike Trail which runs east for 9.5 miles to Michigan City.

From the north parking lot, the trail heads south and immediately crosses over U.S. Highway 12 using a pedestrian overpass. The next section features winding trail through the national lakeshore. The trail picks up Howe Road and travels south to U.S. Highway 20, crossing the highway using a pedestrian overpass.

The rest of the trail to the south uses a mixture of sidewalks, dedicated paths and city streets to the southern trailhead. The Prairie Duneland Trail, which runs from Chesterton to Hobart, is also located here. There is a parking lot with ample parking.
