Enjoy a twilight hike to greet the full moon in Indiana Dunes National Park’s Miller Woods. Join park rangers at the Paul H. Douglas Center for Environmental Education at 7:00 p.m., on Friday, July 23.  
Experience the sights, sounds and smells of Miller Woods at dusk along this moderately strenuous 2-mile hike to the beach. A shuttle bus will be available to bring hikers back to their cars at the center. Bring along bug repellent, water, and a flashlight. We recommend that hikers wear long pants and close-toed shoes on this trail.
