Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore: Bailly-Chellberg Hike Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Get a glimpse of early settlement life in northwestern Indiana by touring the homesteads of two frontier families. You’ll also see wooded ravines, rich bottomland forest that grows beside the Little Calumet River, and a curious old cemetery.
The hike starts 100 yards south of the farm, at the back of the former visitor center, where you’ll follow the trail to the right (north) as it runs along the top of a 40-foot wooded ravine. The first farm building you’ll pass is the maple-sugar house, followed by a windmill with a pump house, a harness shop, a corncrib, a chicken house, the restored brick farmhouse built in 1885, and the large 100-year-old barn."
