Culver to Plymouth - 15 miles
Clear Skies and a High of 72°
Culver: Pilgrims will walk through green forests and prairies along Indiana’s second largest natural lake, Lake Maxinkuckee. We’ll walk through “tunnel road” of trees and then visit historic Culver Academies. Pilgrims will cross the “Logansport Gates” tribute to cadets who, in 1913, rescued approximately 1,500 people from the flooded waters south in Logansport. As a symbol of their appreciation, the grateful residents of Logansport presented the Logansport Gate to the Academy in 1914. We will then pass the statue of Chief Menominee just south of Plymouth on our way to Pretty Lake.

In the tradition of Father Sorin’s inspirational journey and intrepid spirit—our Notre Dame spirit—we will retrace his journey from Vincennes to Notre Dame. We will travel those miles in a collective renewal of our determination, to rededicate ourselves to Notre Dame’s mission to seek God, study the world, and serve humanity—to boldly lead the way into the new chapters of our story.
