Description

Park at the Nature Center. Trail 7 connects the Nature Center to the beach and avoids the tallest of the dunes. Trail 7 can be used in conjunction with Trail 8 - 3 Dunes Challenge if you want to do only some of the tall dunes.

The Indiana Dunes State Park was established in 1925 and contains 2,182 acres of land. The park is home to the tallest sand dunes in the area that approach 200 feet in height. The park contains a diverse range of beach, forest, and wetland habitats. As a result, this is an incredible spot for birding. There are three miles of pristine beaches along the Lake Michigan shoreline.

Visit the park's website for information on programs, camping, and other activities.
