As part of a 50-state initiative, America's State Parks First Day Hikes offer individuals and families an opportunity to begin the New Year with a rejuvenating healthy hike connecting with the outdoors on the first day of the year. Strap on your hiking boots and meet the Indiana Dunes State Park’s Interpretive Naturalists for a special 3-Dune Challenge covering 1.5-miles. Along the way you will be able to explore the beautiful park landscapes and learn some history from the 3 tallest dunes along the Indiana Dunes Lakeshore during this 1-hour jaunt. At the end, hikers will be welcomed by park volunteers with warm drinks, snacks and a cozy campfire provided by the Friends of the Indiana Dunes. Thanks to the Porter County Indiana Dunes Tourism, completing participants will also earn a 3-Dune Challenge sticker. Meet at the Nature Center and bring the whole family. Pets welcome!
