Indiana Dunes Trail Riding
Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore:
Spice Valley Campground
Horseback riding is permitted only on the Ly-co-ki-we Trail, located on
U.S. Highway 20, 1/4 mile west of Kemil Road near Hwy 49 and Chesterton, Indiana.
There is no charge for bringing your horse into the park.
Ly-co-ki-we roughly translated from the Miami Indian language means,
sandy ground. The trail was mostly firm sand, with some dune-like conditions
in places. It is a very narrow trail, just wide enough for one horse, but there were
very few low branches along the way.
Unfortunately, it is not a very long trail, only about 3 1/2 to 4 miles,
and it does not take you near the shores of Lake Michigan.
