Day Two Hundred Ninety-two

Prairie Duneland Trail

We headed to Indiana again today to visit family. We took a slight detour on the way for a walk along a portion of the Prairie Duneland Trail between Portage and Chesterton. With the trees approaching peak colors, this wooded trail was a great place to walk today.

We started at the parking lot at McCool Road and walked northeast to the pedestrian bridge over State Route 149 and back. We saw the connection to the Iron Horse Heritage Trail and read about other connecting trails and bike routes at both ends, making the Prairie Duneland a great way to get around Northwest Indiana and up to the Lake Michigan shoreline on foot or two wheels.
