Pumpkinvine Nature Trail

Perfection

June, 2021 by sean48

Thank you to all who made this happen and all that continue its upkeep. What a gem!

Nickel Plate Trail

Rode from Peru south to Kokomo and hopped on the Industrial Heritage Trail. Watch the crossways out in the country! Weeds are pretty high and the roads, and traffic is fast.

Van Buren Trail State Park

sandy

May, 2021 by zbicyclist

S Haven to Van Buren SP is paved and easy. The 14 mile spur to Hartford is not. Double track, sandy, probably muddy if it has rained. A nice adventure. Even on a nice May Saturday only saw 3 people. Fun if you are up to it. If you are expecting the Kal Haven trail you won’t like it.

Nickel Plate Trail

Nickel Plate- Indiana farms on display

May, 2021 by bearcat80

I parked at the Nickel Plate marked trail head in Kokomo first rode south to downtown and then north to just south of Peru. The route to downtown Kokomo was well marked and an easy ride. Heading back north you will see many farms and small towns to pass through. My favorite was Bunker Hill. There are some stop signs. No rolling stops! The cross traffic are mostly trucks and travel at high speeds. A wonderful day in the country. Mike

North Judson Erie Trail

Really nice little nature trail

May, 2021 by aeboe

I really want to give this 5 stars because it is a gem of trail for the community and surrounding area. We had a camper van so parked off of 10/39 and S. 250 W just outside of North Judson. Trail was paved, but there were some dips to be mindful of in one section closer to North Judson (mentioned by someone else) otherwise it was well maintained. Heard lots of different species of wildlife and enjoyed our ride. Would we make this trail a destination? No. Would we change our route 20-30 minutes to be able to ride this again? Yes.

Great American Rail-Trail

Pumpkinvine Nature Trail

Favorite Trail

This was a fun trail. Beautiful landscapes .The trail had asphalt and gravel. We love riding through the Amish countryside and eating at the Amish restaurants.

Van Buren Trail State Park

New Trailhead and Paved Trail

November, 2020 by lbpiers

There is now trailhead parking at the South Haven end of the trail. There is a parking lot on Aylworth Ave. between Kalamazoo St. and Monroe Blvd. The trail is also paved between that trailhead parking and Van Buren State Park.

Portage Creek Bicentennial Trail

aging trail but very serviceable

November, 2020 by joe maitner

Drove down from Grand Rapids, Mi to experience the Bicentennial Trail. The trail is short ( 3.6) but a comfortable 8 miles (we added a half mile by going beyond the park on paved side walk at south end) by going out and back. Trail was older but black top surface was very usable and kept in repair. For a short trail it had lots of nice surprises in twist, turns, slight hills and surrounded by nature in the middle of a city environment. Parking was plentiful with several trail lots at both ends and in the middle. It was a 77 degree, sunny November 6th which added to the enjoyment. Trail was quite busy but everyone knew and followed trail etiquette. Highly recommend this trail.

LaSalle Trail

northern Indiana- Michigan border

October, 2020 by eitler

Flat tide on a cement trail. Benches online the trail. Not much shade so in the summer months it may be a hot ride, A few roads that you need to cross.

Indiana-Michigan River Valley Trail

October, 2020 by rafrillman

Very nice. Paved trail , pretty color change, nice scenery along the river . Very rider friendly.

Angola Trail

Pokagon to Ramada

October, 2020 by rq8szzryiq

The trail from Pokagon Park runs along the camp road, with a clearly painted white line to set it off. There are traffic lights and crosswalks out of the park toward Angola. There is 7% grade going up as you leave the park, just after the park sign. Keep going. The view from the top is spectacular, especially with the autumn colors. After you get around and past the Ramada Inn, there’s another steep hill (8%). In both cases, we didn’t see the sign until we had turned around and headed back. It was a fun ride down!
