The Marquette Trail, also known as the Marquette Greenway, will one day span more than 50 miles through Northwest Indiana, connecting communities along the southern shore of Lake Michigan.
The 2-mile section through Gary offers picturesque views of Lake Michigan as it travels through the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. This scenic route follows a former rail line through a variety of diverse habitats, including hardwood forests, wetlands and rolling dunes. Along the way, trail-goers can enjoy catching a glimpse of the water birds, deer, lizards and other wildlife that call this area home.
An upcoming new section of the trail will span 3 miles in the Town of Burns Harbor.
On the eastern end of the trail, ample parking and restroom facilities are available at West Beach in the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. The entrance to the beach is off County Line Road; watch for West Beach signage on US 12 or US 20.
