Join a ranger at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore on Saturday, September 2, from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pmor Friday, September 8, from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm, for an evening hike to the top of famous Mount Baldy. Even though the dune is closed for general public use, these ranger-led tours allow visitors to experience the beauty and spectacular views from the tallest dune in the national lakeshore.
Please note that the Mount Baldy parking lot and beach are now open everyday from 6:00 am to 11:00 pm after being closed for the last several years. The dune itself, however, is still closed for general public use. We strongly ask the public to respect and follow posted closure signs and stay out of roped-off areas. The dune is still closed for reasons of public safety and restoration efforts.
Please meet at the Mount Baldy parking lot, located just off of U.S. Highway 12, just west of Michigan City, Indiana. No reservations are required. For more information on this or other programs at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, call 219-395-1882 or visit our website at and our Facebook page at
