In my quest to ride my bike in all fifty states,I drove over 2,000 miles from southern California to ride thirty-four miles on this trail in early October. I was not disappointed! This is truly a five star trail, the quintessential Rails-to-Trails experience! There aren't enough superlatives to describe this trail!
In simplest terms, this curvy trail through the Indiana countryside made this sixty-eight year old guy happy. I realized I was actually smiling as I pedaled through the woods upon a carpet of golden brown leaves. The corn fields are amazing, as are the farms and their pastures of grazing horses, cows, and sheep.
I especially enjoyed my interactions with the friendly Amish community. Whether on their bikes, walking, in their yards, or passing by and waving from their horse drawn carriages, they comprised at least 75% of the people I encountered. I think the trail should be nicknamed "The Amish Trail" in their honor. There sure as heck aren't any pumpkins!
Elkhart County, you are to be commended, and your trail deserves Hall of Fame status!
This is a great bike path to connect the community and keep children out of street.
I biked the trail from Middlebury to Shipshewana. It was a beautiful ride through Amish country. However, the trail itself was nice and flat, but was peppered with horse manure, and very buggy! In addition, it was very heavily used which made the ride much less relaxing than others. Keep in mind, the access to amenities is limited in on Sundays, so riding the Pumpkinvine take a little planning. Otherwise, enjoy the meandering trail some of the best of what Indiana has to offer!
Very nice, well maintained. Great great trail for getting the miles in. Shipshewana to Goshen is as good as it gets. Coming back...whew, mostly entirely uphill to varying degrees. I'll be back in the fall for the colors.
September 2023-Ottawa Beach at Holland State Park to Port Sheldon and back. 20 mile round trip. Holland and surrounding areas have a great trail system. Almost every road has a paved trail along side of it, separated by a grassy section. You can ride and ride! Biked North on Lakeshore Road and for the return ride, took Butternut Drive to New Holland then 168th Avenue back to Holland State Park. While in this area of Holland, be sure to check out Big Red, Hollands Lighthouse and also climb the stairs at Mt. Pisgah for an awesome view of Lake Michigan. Stick around for the sunsets!
My son and I just returned from riding the Pumpkinvine for the first time, and it did not disappoint. The word to best describe it would be bucolic.
The trails is great, the scenery is great (especially Krider's Garden in Mulberry), and it's nice to be among the Amish and learn more about their lifestyle.
Lovely trail! A mix of urban and Wooded.
Nice trail and very interesting area with many Amish passing you on a bicycle pulling large trailers full of all types of supplies and materials.
Be a lot nicer if all the gaps are filled without using roads.
This trail serves as bicycle friendly way to get you from Elkhart down to Goshen to connect to the Pumpkinvine trail. The route goes along a road and through the cemetery. It gets you from point to point. It is better than not having a trail if you want to get somewhere along here but would not travel out of my way to ride this trail.
Follows along river and through parks. Connects with other trails but would be nice if there was a way to extend over to Elkhart.
Nice trail. Could use some better signage by E. Madison to stay on trail route.
Some areas could use some resurfacing but overall good trail.
