Beloved by locals and admired by adventurers nation wide, Indiana Dunes National Park offers seclusion, invigorating hiking, and an escape from city life. On this two-day backpacking trip through this newly minted National Park, we'll explore the lakeshore and surrounding forest while keeping an eye out for the critters that call this area home. We'll traverse 6 miles the first day to a peaceful campsite where we'll cook dinner and settle in for a tranquil night under the stars. In the morning, we'll continue on with 3 more miles out of the park. Before setting out, we'll get you set up with much of the gear you need, and all food is provided, but please show up with your own personal sleeping bag and sleeping pad. We hope you'll join us!
