The weather on Sunday will be SUNNY and 62 degrees!
We're going to hike approx 8-10 miles in the Indiana Dunes area. We'll meet at the National Lakeshore Ranger Station. Since this is part of the National Lakeshore, there is no entry fee.
We'll start the hike at the Cowles Bog trails and then hike up a steep dune to the lakefront. Then we'll hike about 3 miles on the beach and into the State Park. We'll take inland trails in the state park, some roads and an unmapped naturalist trail back to the Cowles Bog Parking Lot.
There will be a couple steep climbs, long stretches on the beach and high sun-exposure. Expect the hike to be about 3 hours with a stop for snacks on the beach
What to Bring: At least 2 liters of water and snacks.
