  • Not a huge problem, but if the wind is just right you will get the smell of chemicals in your nose for about half a mile
  • Possibly the best part of this trail was at the end, the trees just disappear and you are left staring out over the lake, no warning that this is what awaits you

      The Indiana Dunes on Lake Michigan is a beautiful state park with many open trails to walk. I have had the pleasure just recently to visit this area and walk about 8 miles of the trails.

        The second trail that

        I took was the Little River trail which was again through the woods, but this one was mainly along wooden sidewalks through the bogs and across the Calumet river.

        This trail was just as natural as the beach trail, but it was on this trail, not the beach, that I got to see the wildlife which was a very nice addition.
