Indiana Dunes National Park to Kick Off New ‘Diana of the Dunes’ Trail Challenge

In Porter County, the new “Diana’s Dare” hiking challenge kicks off at Indiana Dunes National Park via a virtual event this week. Those interested can learn about the new trail experience and why the park has renamed a West Beach sand dune in honor of the legendary Diana of the Dunes. Park officials say it’s an opportunity to get a preview of the challenging new trail experience and learn more about the life and legacy of Alice Mabel Gray, who later became known as “Diana of the Dunes”. See a preview of a selfie station and the trail’s views of Lake Michigan. The Diana’s Dare Trail Challenge is made possible through a partnership between Indiana Dunes Tourism, the Friends of Indiana Dunes and Indiana Dunes National Park. This online presentation is free and there’s no need to register – just go to the national park’s Facebook page: IndianaDunesNPS at 2:00 pm Central Time on March 25th.
