INDIANA DUNES NATIONAL LAKESHORE: Join a park ranger for a free cup of coffee or tea while overlooking Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore’s beautiful Miller Woods. A ranger with a coffee pot will be available at the national lakeshore’s Paul H. Douglas Center on both Saturday August 12 and 26, at 9:30 am. Use this time to plan your park visit, gather area information, and then head out into the park. You can even hop on a free shuttle to Lake Street Beach or Marquette Park. The shuttle runs from 10:00 am - 6:00 pm on summer weekends.
The Paul H. Douglas Center and the Miller Woods trailhead are located in the western portion of the national lakeshore at 100 North Lake Street, about one mile north of U.S. Highway 12 in the Miller neighborhood of Gary.
