The Bailly Homestead, Chellberg Farm and Calumet Loop is a moderate hike in Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore near Chicago. This trail connects two loops that wander past historic homesteads and along the Calumet River. This hike particularly nice during the spring when wildflowers are blooming or in the autumn when fall foliage is peaking. Watch for poison ivy along the trails edge! Remember, leaves of three, let it be. This family friendly hike is also dog friendly, but your furry kids must be kept on leash. There is camping available in Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.
