Pumpkinvine Nature Trail

Pumpkinvine Nature Trail

November, 2023 by thejake91739

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!

Pumpkinvine Nature Trail

Unique Trail

October, 2023 by jim_harding45

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!

Pumpkinvine Nature Trail

Beautiful trail

September, 2023 by jgabos

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.

Blue River Trail

Calm, Meandering walk about.

August, 2023 by 6bz2nxbzs8

Other than having issues finding the trailhead parking (more of a Waze issue than anything to do with the tail) it was a lovely little hike. Well maintained pavement made for a nice leisurely stroll. The only down side is that the views are mostly chain-link fencing and the backside of commercial/industrial sites. That being said, it was still a wonderful way to get the daysday’s steps in.

Wabash & Erie Canal Towpath Trail

short n sweet but stinky

August, 2023 by lunanoiz

Nice enough little trail that’s very well-maintained. There’s a beautiful wooden walkway that crosses some lovely marshlands & fields. unfortunately, it sits right by a busy highway. Would’ve given this trail four stars but had to demote one star because it stinks. Literally. There was a lingering smell the whole time and once I got towards the end of the trail, I found the culprit. A giant sewage treatment plant. I had to turn around and ride back upwind of that nasty mofo and by the time I finally passed it I felt like I like I inhaled all of Fort Wayne‘s butt fumes. Most unpleasant. ¿

Fishing Line Trail

Was on this trail for the first time and definitely won't be my last time. This tree covered trail is beautiful and definitely not busy. The asphalt trail is very smooth for cyclists. And the amount of Porta potties is a plus.

Trail was great! Tons of shade couldn’t even tell it was 90 degrees out!

Rieke Park Trail

Great trail.

July, 2023 by vboyddevine

This trail is really nice. It's paved and very well-kept. The park in front of the trail is also a very nice park with pavilions and lots of sports activities and clean bathrooms. If you take the trail north of the park you can use sidewalks to connect to the DeKalb trail. If you take the trail south of the park you can end up in town and also go on an adjoining path to the reike park lodge and pond. It was a great trail that was very wide and pretty.

Angola Trail

Pokagon State park to Commons park

July, 2023 by johnberger113

Great trail especially riding e-bikes since part of the trail is hilly. Ice cream, yogurt, and food found along the way. Riding to Commons park puts you just east of downtown Angola. Very clean restrooms at the park. Check out this link to watch my ride of the trail https://youtu.be/BSH6-eiC3kQ
