A great trail for those wanting a long run along empty stretches of Lake Michigan beach.

Dogs Leashed

Features Birding · Fall Colors · Lake · Swimming · Views · Wildlife

Pets permitted on a leash (6' or shorter). Swimming is permitted only at the Pavilion when lifeguards are present (Memorial Day through Labor Day).

There is an entrance fee to the State Park every day from mid-April through mid-November. Fees are collected on weekends only in the winter. $7 per car for Indiana residents, $12 per car for out of state visitors. $2 walk-in and bike fee.

Description

Park at either the beach or at the Nature Center. The preferred direction is counter-clockwise. The first half of the run is on flat to rolling trail in the forest. The footing is good with a mixture of sand and packed dirt. The trail is never crowded, even on summer weekends.

At the furthest point east, the trail will turn north and climb over a steep vegetated sand dune. Footing is loose sand. Once to the lake, the trail back to the beach Pavilion runs along the beach. The beach is amazingly pristine. Take plenty of water as this run will take longer than it appears due to the loose sand.
