“Perhaps the best trail in Northwest Indiana with incredible views of Lake Michigan.”— Rafi Wilkinson
At the farthest point, the trail will turn to the left and climb up the dune. Lake Michigan will come into view. The trail returns along the ridge line culminating at Big Beach House Blowout. The views and topography are incredible. The trail literally falls off the back out the blowout and returns to the Nature Center using the same trail.
