Calumet Trail

Muddy

July, 2021 by xfpcdx56mb

This trail? is full of depressions holding rainwater creating walk around areas. Not recommended trail unless it has not rained for weeks.

Pumpkinvine Nature Trail

The Best

July, 2021 by xfpcdx56mb

This is the best bike trail I have ever ridden on¿¿ Beautifully paved and scenic. There could be better signs where it crosses Highway 20 in Meddlebury but thanks to other riders we found it¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿. Look for garden snakes on the trail.

Calumet Trail

WET TRAIL

July, 2021 by xfpcdx56mb

As per all the other reviews this trail has huge mud puddles that you have to walk around might be fun if you wanted to get all dirty but otherwise stay off of it.

Kalamazoo River Valley Trail

KRV needs TLC

July, 2021 by jcstark

My husband and I road this trail this past weekend. We started at the Galesburg Augusta primary school in Galesburg and road west to just beyond the nature center before turning around. There are several signs on this trail showing support from the various communities yet it appears no one has done anything other than mowing alongside it in quite a while. There are small tree branches all along the trail, including one downed tree. And it looks like recent rain showers have deposited a lot of sand and small stone in several spots. One particular section had a lot of homeless people. They were no issues but it is just something good to know for families taking small children on this road

Prairie Duneland Trail

Me & my ex wife used to go to this trail. She was a runner and me a biker. I would ride along side her while she ran. Great trail. One of my faves. Haven't been here since 2015 but going back soon!!

Pumpkinvine Nature Trail

AWESOME trail

July, 2021 by robos2

What a great scenic ride. Well maintained. Connecting cities take pride. Can't wait to do Elkhart to Shipshewanna. Only did Goshen to Ship today.

Pumpkinvine Nature Trail

amazing ride

July, 2021 by fssjg2bcd3

The stretch from Shipshewana to Middlebury was an amazing ride- straight, flat and through Amish farms and woods!

Pumpkinvine Nature Trail

Perfection

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

Kal-Haven Trail Sesquicentennial State Park

could be a jewel-but-it’s not good

May, 2021 by chaspenny

We rode 5 miles eastbound from Bloomingdales and the trail was rideable but in need of maintenance. The restroom at the Bloomingdales trailhead was the worst I have seen in. Any Steve we have ridden in. The next day we rode west from Grand Junction to South Haven. Rideable yes but we could not take our eyes off the trail path because of the vary soft and deep limestone powder in many areas. There were at least 2 spots that looked like someone took Nasty

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.

Prairie Duneland Trail

pleasant stroll

May, 2021 by johnas1974

Easy flat trail that is very well maintained. Lots of stops to cross busy streets but many people stop their cars to let us cross. The trail mostly goes behind houses and neighborhoods.

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.
