“A nice connector trail that winds though the national lakeshore and the town of Porter.”— Rafi Wilkinson
Family Friendly A nice paved trail that winds through the National Park and into Porter and Chesterton.
From the north parking lot, the trail heads south and immediately crosses over U.S. Highway 12 using a pedestrian overpass. The next section features winding trail through the national lakeshore. The trail picks up Howe Road and travels south to U.S. Highway 20, crossing the highway using a pedestrian overpass.
The rest of the trail to the south uses a mixture of sidewalks, dedicated paths and city streets to the southern trailhead. The Prairie Duneland Trail, which runs from Chesterton to Hobart, is also located here. There is a parking lot with ample parking.
