Little Calumet River Levee Trail Description

Little Calumet River Levee Trail stretches from Munster to Gary, Indiana. The trail zigs and zags through a number of local parks including Riverside Park, Wicker Memorial Park, Homestead Park, Carlson Oxbow Park, and North Gleason Park. Most of the trail is off-road but there are some short on-road sections. It connects to the 17-mile Erie Lackawanna Trail at its west terminal.

Parking and Trail Access

Homestead Park (8099 5th St, Highland) has ample parking while Riverside Park's (along River Drive in Hammond) parking is limited. You can also check out Wicker Memorial (8554 Indianapolis Blvd, Highland ) and Gleason Park (3400 Jefferson Street, Gary). 

Little Calumet River Levee Trail Reviews

I recently walked this trail, and I loved every moment of it. The scenery is great and I have seen people fishing, taking pictures, and talking as they walk.¿¿

Interesting ride, no easy access to cross Cline Avenue

I have to say this route is actually interesting. Bridges are kinda neat. With extensive civil repairs over years to the Little Calumet River you can see a lot of wildlife here. I enjoyed seeing deer, various geese, duck, coyotes, Blue Herons, and fish. From starting in Munster the trail is really an accessory to Erie Lackawanna Trail. It goes thru Munster, South Hammond and ends in Highland at Indiana 912. No bridge to cross. It does not easily cross to Griffith. I have seen some segments of it in Gary, along I94. I’m not sure why they say it ends in Gary. Maybe it will one day? This is an interesting stretch because it crosses the river with some nice bridges and it can lead you to Erie Lackawanna at least a few points.
