Syracuse-Wawasee Trail

Bike trail?

November, 2022 by j.disbro

There's about 0.7 of a mile south of town that is great. The rest of the "trails" are just city surface streets declared to be "trails" with no signage to point you in the right direction. Nothing compared to the trail systems available in Goshen up the road.

Wabash River Trail

beautiful river trail

October, 2022 by rogerpedwards

Well maintained asphalt trail with woods and river scenery. Nice Bistro overlooking river in Lagro.

Heritage Trail (IN)

picturesque village and wooded trail

September, 2022 by bradtollefson

The trail passes through what the locals call Winona Village which is a small peninsula with a shop lined canal and many picturesque houses. Definitely worth exploring. There's a side trail that takes you up to Grace College. It's a mile long and goes through secluded woods with trail side sculptures. That's a mile long so adds 2 miles. You can circle the lake (i suggest going clock wise so you are always making right turns and don't have to cross traffic). The college detour and circling the lake gives you a 10 mile loop. Detour into downtown for another 2 miles. There are many nice houses along main and center streets. The courthouse and surrounding square is very picturesque.

Calumet Trail

30 miles of the wettest, most brutal gravel I've ever ridden.

September, 2022 by scallycraft

This trail is awesome for a gravel bike ride. My hygienist drove me to the start and raced me on the road, I finished the trail just in time for lunch break and beat the hygienist's car!! Then I got back to my dental work so I can get paid and buy next year's Cervelo.

Plymouth Avenue Trail

commuter trail

September, 2022 by bradtollefson

The best part of this trail is the bridge over the elkhart river. The rest was just a path along plymouth avenue. Handy for us as it lead to our b&b but not a destination. Not unpleasant but very suburban compared to the leafy Shanklin-Mullet and Millrace trails.

Winona Interurban Trail

Surprisingly Secluded

September, 2022 by bradtollefson

This trail starts in Goshen College and heads south along what I assume is an old rail trail. It's surprisingly secluded, quiet and peaceful. We hit the trail from the south end of the Millrace Trail where it terminates in the Shoups-Parsons Woods Park by taking Westwood Road east to the campus where there's a small curvy access trail. You can see this on the map just south of westwood on main st. There's a nice extension to the east worth a detour. Go north to explore the campus. Then the best part is heading south where the trail is secluded. We headed west from the southern end of the trail and explored Violett Cemetery as we headed back north.

Ridge Run Trail

seclude trail with covered bridge

September, 2022 by bradtollefson

The trail goes north from the pumpkinvine trail just south of middlebury. The trail briefly parallels state road 20 before branching off around a horse field and then into a golf course like park with a picturesque covered bridge. It finishes in the hugely popular Das Dutchman Essenhaus with it's many shops and restaurants. I recommend the cookies in the bakery. The north end of the trail connects with the Wayne Avenue trail which will take you into the center of Middlebury and the pumpkin vine trail.

Syracuse-Wawasee Trail

not really a trail

September, 2022 by bradtollefson

This is not a trail but a random series of plain narrow sidewalks and roads. There are 3 nice bits: on the east side of syracuse lake there's a narrow paved section (not wide enough to pass) , a short flowery stretch north of lake Wawasee near the gulf course and the best bit a boardwalk called the Conklin Bay Trail on the sw side of Lake Wawasee. Unfortunately these bits are less then 10% of the trail.

I don't know what the criteria is for putting trails on TrailLink. There are no markers showing where the trail is. There is nothing natural telling you where to go. There is nothing traily about it. No clue why this is on trail link.

That being said, we ended up doing a figure eight around lake syracuse and lake wawasee which we really enjoyed. That ended up being about 21 miles. State Road 13 is really busy with fast traffic so we avoided that as much as possible. There's a full service bathroom at Lakeview Park across from the Syracuse Community Center.

Calumet Trail

Worst Trail Ever

September, 2022 by dan_fee

The "too big", loose stones make this trail almost unusable. Stay away. Your bike and body will thank you.

Erie Trail

Great ride through quiet countryside

September, 2022 by lrs442

Peaceful ride starting at a small town and leading out past railways and farms and over streams. Three busy road crossings, interesting historical and NASA-based planetary sign markers along the route, and a trail mostly to yourself. Would ride again.

Erie Trail

Quiet and Peaceful, but be careful

September, 2022 by dalenagel

The trail is paved, straight and level. Much of it is shaded by trees (great on a hot sunny day), but can leave debris on the path. We saw a deer and wild turkeys along the way and very few other riders. We started at the trailhead in North Judson. There’s only 3 or 4 parking spots, but there was only one other car there on a sunny Saturday morning . You may want to start 1 mile east where there is more parking and picnic tables (look for the giant bicycle sculpture). The trail ends at 11 miles. There’s a bench to take a break or you could lake local roads around Bass Lake. Turn around and head back another 11 miles, 22 miles total. Be careful, there are several sections where the pavement has settled and is falling away and in need of repair.
