Lake George Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

As the name suggests, the Lake George trail travels along the north shore of Lake George, turning north at Calumet Ave/US 41 to skirt the east shore of Wolf Lake. From Lake George the trail also heads east and north toward Whiting Park on Lake Michigan, stopping just south of the park at 119th Street. The urban trail provides access to businesses and parks. There are plans to build a pedestrian bridge that will continue the trail to Whiting Park.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at Forsythe Park in Hammond (take 119th Street west to Wolf Lake), off Calumet Avenue/US 41 at Wolf Lake, at Wolf Lake Park (121st and Calumet Ave.), off S. Indianapolis Blvd./US 12/20 and off 121st near the railroad tracks where the trail crosses 121st.

Once was Enough

Rode from Wolf Lake west to William Powers State Recreation Area and then back east and rode the north side of Wolf Lake until it ended by an odd factory parking lot. Pretty but riding under power lines and the smell was not worth it. read more

Lake George review

The paths were clear, the view was awesome and there was just enough variation of sunshine and shade to keep things cool. The Geese however are pretty intimidating. read more
