Little Calumet River Trail
Phone: (219) 395-1882
The Little Calumet Trail, located in the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, is part of a 3.9-mile network of hiking trails that connect the Bailly Homestead, Chellberg Farm, and the Dunes Learning Center. Pick up a trail map at the trailhead or the Dorothy Buell Memorial Visitor Center to guide your explorations. The Little Calumet River Trail passes through the Mnoke Prairie, 120 acres of restored tallgrass prairie--a once-widespread habitat, now rare in Indiana. The trail skirts the Little Calumet River valley, then crosses the river and follows a boardwalk through wet bottomlands before climbing to a hardwood forest and pine plantation.
