Marquette Greenway Trail

Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission

The 50-mile Marquette Greenway Trail will eventually link communities, major parks and a wide variety of cultural, natural and economic assets. The Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources’ Coastal Program, in conjunction with the Northwest Indiana Regional Planning Association, announced on October 29 a plan to close a nine-mile gap separating two units of the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.
