Dunes Ridge Trail at Kemil Beach

February 20, 2013

Dunes Ridge Trail at Kemil Beach in Beverly Shores is one of my favorite quick and easy trails! It’s a short loop — about 10-15 minutes when walking. There is one large hill that brings you to a great overlook.

Once the trail is completed, if you have time and energy – be sure to climb the big dune that looks down on Kemil Beach! It’s an amazing view and on clear days you can get a great shot of the Chicago Skyline.

    And, after a great hike you can always stop at Jannsen’s Dunes Mart for a soft serve ice cream cone! It’s the best!
