The 3 Dune Challenge

Need a reason to get outside? We’ve got three.

Challenge friends, family, and yourself to an epic climb up the three tallest sand dunes at Indiana Dunes State Park. It’s 1.5 miles of tough trail with 552 vertical feet that’s 100 percent brag-worthy.

The 3 Dune Challenge is just an hour drive from Chicago
