  • Mount Baldy Beach is losing more sand that it is taking in. The US Army Corps of Engineers has "fed" it four meals-- trucked in three times and sllurried in by pipe in 1996.
  • Mount Baldy is moving about 4 feet a year.
  • Mount Baldy parking lot is closed until further notice. When open, the Mount Baldy Summit Trail has limited access. You must call the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Visitor Center for a reservation and must be accompanied by authorized personnel.
