Singing Sands Trail Description

The Singing Sands Trail stretches over 4 miles across Michigan City. The paved trail picks up from the eastern end of the Calumet Trail at US/12 at the border of Porter and LaPorte Counties. The trail rambles through wetlands of the Singing Sands National Park briefly before transitioning to an urban industrial setting as it parallels the railroad uptp the power generation station. From there, the trail enters the heart of the city, passing the courthouse, public library and city hall and the city's arts district. The trail then pivots to follow East Michigan Boulevard, providing access to Charles R. Westcott Park and the Trail Creek Marina. At 8th Street, trail users will turn left to continue along the trail along Trail Creek Greenway, heading to Winding Creek Cove Park. A bridge carries users over Trail Creek to the final stretch of the trail, which ends at a road called Liberty Trail.

The Singing Sands Trail will be extended east to Meer Road at the Michigan state line, adding another 5 miles to its length. The trail is part of the Marquette Greenway, a 60-mile paved trail project stretching between Chicago and Buffalo, Michigan.

On the western side of the trail you can park at the US 12 Trailhead where the Calument Trail and the Singing Sands Trail meet.

Alternatively parking includes Charles R. Westcott Park (at the corner of W. Michigan Blvd/ US and E. Michigan Blvd); Winding Creek Cove Park (E. 8th St & N Dickson St)

Singing Sands Trail Reviews

Singing Sands Trail

A mix of smooth asphalt and concrete sidewalk squares. All brand new. This trail crosses several car-intersections and train tracks. Crossing the amtrak tracks in downtown Michigan City requires navigating around a barricade on gravel. I was disappointed this trail exists very close to Mount Baldy, yet there’s no safe way to access the park. Bikers, pedestrians, and skaters on the Singing Sands Trail are exposed to highway 12 (50mph road) if they want to go to Mount Baldy.
