Hiking in Indiana Dunes

Whether a leisurely stroll along the incredible shoreline or a heartier hike through the extensive variety of trails, Indiana Dunes Country is a wildlife-rich landscape of dunes, barrens, prairies, forests and wetlands, packed with great sites to explore. From sand to oak forest, hike renowned trails; climb Mount Baldy, a 125-foot “living dune;” or walk among native wild lupines in the land known as the birthplace of ecology. Or for a change of scenery, take a walk through the area’s many historic sites, museums, preserves and parks.
