Cancelled: Full Moon Hike, Indiana Dunes State Park
Start Date: 4/4/2020Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 4/4/2020End Time: 10:00 PM
Event Description:
**We want our guests and staff to have safe and memorable outdoor experiences at our park in light of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19.) This event is cancelled or the location is modified to comply with the guidance for gatherings provided by the Indiana State Department of Health or our local county health department. We regret that we must make this decision, but will err on the side of caution, given that we know the spread of this virus comes from close personal contact and it is critical to limit that spread. The park remains open for public use, and we invite you to come and take a hike, spend a night under the stars camping, or have a picnic lunch.

Join Naturalists and volunteers for this special lunar hike to Lake Michigan and back. You can meet at the Nature Center at 7:00 p.m. CST for a short presentation about our moon along with some "stellar" treats. Hike begins at 8:00 p.m. CST

Registration is not necessary as this hike is free after paying the park entry fee of $7 in-state/ $12 out-of-state.

The hike portion of this program is 2 miles long and the terrain involves moderate dunes, beach, and flat pavement.  You can contact the Nature Center up to the day before to see exactly what trail route will be used as trail conditions may change and a new route chosen.

Dogs are welcome as long as they are friendly in crowds of people and obey our park's rules.

A sand ATV wheel chair may be reserved for free by calling the Nature Center.

These hikes are very popular and parking is limited by our Nature Center.  Additional parking can be found in the campground or by nearby picnic shelters. Plan ahead.

The Nature Center will open 1/2 hour before the indoor portion of the program at 6:30 p.m. CST.

This indoor portion of this program will take place no matter the weather conditions.  If cloudy we will still embark on a night nature hike.

This program is made possible thanks to the Friends of Indiana Dunes.

Call the park's Nature Center at 219-926-1390 for more information.
