Written Directions

To start this route, get yourself to the intersection of US Hwy 6 and Rt 49 (mid way between Chesterton and Valparaiso). From there just take US Rt 6 east all the way to Walkerton, IN.

Scenery

Completely rural countryside with some residential areas ... beautiful summer/fall ride.

Drive Enjoyment

Two-lane highway traveling through the countryside. This is northwest Indiana so it's pretty much flat ... elevation doesn't really change. :-(

Tourism Opportunities

Few small towns offer gas, a convenience store or two, and not much more. You'll be taking this route for the sleep rural scenery not the things to do along the way.

I live near the starting point of this trip and it is a nice ride, No, it's not exciting scenery, mostly country and corn fields, but warning in June 09, there is a detour shortly after Rt 49, might take you over to Rt 30 then back to 6, but 30 is not too bad a ride, though faster and more traffic. If you are looking for scenery and things to do, go further north to Rt 12 for the dunes ride, but 6 is a nice peaceful ride and yes, you can keep heading east if you are not ready to stop :^)

Only a small area of the road was worth seeing It had overhanging trees. Since you are already in the area it is definitly worth going to the Sand Dunes.
