Bike, hike, or ski this 9.1- mile gravel trail, which skirts the southern boundaries of Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and Indiana Dunes State Park from Cowles Bog to Mount Baldy. Prairie habitat lines the trail, and late-summer wildflowers—like cardinal flowers, blazing stars, asters, fringed gentians, and great blue lobelia—color the landscape. Restrooms are available at the South Shore Line Stations and Cowles Bog Trailhead. This crushed gravel trail runs parallel to U.S. Highway 12 and a set of electrical power lines, between Mineral Springs Road in Porter and Mount Baldy in Michigan City. Parking is available, from east to West, at Mineral Springs Road, just north of U.S. Highway 12 in Porter; U.S. Highway 12, east of State Route 49 in Porter; Beverly Shores Depot on Broadway, north of U.S. Highway 12 in Beverly Shores (the listed GPS coordinates are for this site); and at US Route 12 at the Porter/La Porte County Line in Michigan City. This last site is along U.S. 12, south of Beverly Drive.
