Join Naturalists and volunteers for this special lunar hike to Lake Michigan and back. Meet outside the Nature Center at 8:30 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 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 by nearby picnic shelters. Plan ahead.

The Nature Center will open 1/2 hour before the program at 8:00 p.m. CST.

If inclement weather we will cancel this program.  If only cloudy we will still embark on a night nature hike adventures.

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