Glenwood Dunes Trail

Formerly Ly-co-ki-we Trail

Indiana Natural Areas: Porter County



Glenwood Dunes Trail is not so much a single trail as a network of trails meandering through recent growth woods, wetlands, and dunes in an area between U.S. 12 and U.S. 20. During the warmer months, much of the trail system is open to horses, with all that entails. Mosquitoes can be fierce, but wildflowers and ferns are common, and the sandy footpath makes for a pleasant if occasionally challenging stroll. In early August, watch for large clusters of Indian pipe (aka corpse plant) near the U.S. 20 entrance. Aside from the trailhead described below, where you can usually find a handout with a map of the trail system, access is available from the Dunewood Campground via the Dunewood Trace (trail).
