Dunes Kankakee Trail Description

The Dunes Kankakee Trail is a 3-mile walking and bike path that begins in the Indiana Dunes State Park and travels south to Chesterton. It connects the Calumet Trail, which is also in the state park, and the Prairie-Duneland Trail. This creates over 20-miles of trail from Michigan City to Hobart. This trail will also eventually go south to the Kankakee River and then travel west from Kouts to Hebron. The network of trails in this region connects many communities and is a great recreational tool for both visitors and residents. The closing of a few gaps in this area will allow for a seamless travel to and beyond the Illinois state line into Chicago. 

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available within Indiana Dunes State Park (1600 N. 25 East, Chesterton).
