Porter County Indiana – Home to 54 Nature Trails And More

August 28, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

Get ready to trek the wilds of Porter County Indiana. Finally in one location, there is a booklet of all the best nature trails and points of interest for the amateur nature lover in your family. And with 54 nature trails to choose from, you can visit one a week for an entire year before visiting the same place twice.

In case you missed it Chesterton Indiana’s old Porter County Convention Recreation and Tourism Bureau has been renamed and re-branded. The new name is now Indiana Dunes Tourism, reflecting the emphasis on the lakeshore, the State and National Parks, and a new appreciation for the unique biodiversity, bird migration, nature habitats, and Lake Michigan. Eco-tourism comes to Northwest Indiana.

Indiana Dunes Tourism even hired noted nature photographer Ted Eubanks to assist them in producing some high quality campaigns and support materials. And one of the results is a 44 page booklet called “Beyond The Beach: Discovery Trail Guide” where you can locate and plan your weekend excursions across the rural vistas of Porter County Indiana.

The free booklet is organized into three topographical categories: Dunes, for the lakefront and oak forests; Moraine, referring to the highlands around Valparaiso Indiana where the ancient glaciers came to rest; and finally the Kankakee Region for the rich agricultural and wetlands in the Southern portion of the county around the Kankakee and Yellow river basins.

There are activities for bicyclists, bird-watchers, kayakers, hikers, railroad and history buff’s, just to name a few. If you don’t make it to every physical location in Porter County the booklet also offers plenty of tantalizing photos to bring you back again. You can obtain a free copy of  “Beyond The Beach: Discovery Trail Guide” at the Dorothy Buell Memorial Visitor Center in Chesterton Indiana. There is an extensive collection of tourism brochures from across the region, as well as a gift shop and bookstore with an assortment of memorabilia and nature guides.

Come enjoy one of 54 nature trails throughout Porter County Indiana and learn why so many nature lovers have come to call Porter County Indiana home. When Mother Nature calls you to come home to Porter County Indiana, call upon me to help you unearth your dream home in Porter County Indiana.
