“A great trail for those wanting a long hike along empty stretches of Lake Michigan beach.”— Rafi Wilkinson
There is an entrance fee to the State Park every day from mid-April through mid-November. Fees are collected on weekends only in the winter. $7 per car for Indiana residents, $12 per car for out of state visitors. $2 walk-in and bike fee.
At the furthest point east, the trail will turn north and climb over a steep vegetated sand dune. Footing is loose sand. Once to the lake, the trail back to the beach Pavilion runs along the beach. The beach is amazingly pristine. Take plenty of water as this hike will take longer than it appears due to the loose sand.
