Angola Trail Description

For more than 4 miles, Angola's trail winds through the heart of the city, which sits in the northeast corner of Indiana, just 10 miles from the bordering states of Michigan and Ohio. The paved pathway connects Fireman's Park and Commons Park, and is less than a mile from Trine University. Benches, constructed by Eagle Scouts, are available all along the route.

Future plans include a connection to Pokagon State Park, about 3 miles north of where the trail currently ends. The state park sprawls over more than 1,200 acres and offers wetlands, lakes, and historical buildings to explore.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available on the north end of the trail at E. Wendell Jacob Avenue. Near the trail's southern end, parking can be found at Fireman's Park and Commons Park.

Angola Trail Reviews

With a few small, but reasonably steep hills, this trail runs behind Meijer and Walmart while passing some apartment complexes. Lots of stopping at cross streets and to actually stay on the trail. It seems this is much more for residents to commute in the area or get in a quick run. Both ends of the trail have parking. The south trailhead ends at the high school. It was perfect to ride to the hot air balloon festival and avoid the hassles of parking. I suggest staying on the street behind walmart instead of hopping up onto the path. Also, when coming north to south be on lookout at the park for the left turn on to a street marked "no outlet." You will end up riding directly next to a play ground. (We missed the turn when riding and had to double back) There a bit of riding on the road, but it is mostly on a sidewalk. The residents were super sweet and always waved us on or backed up because they thought they were out too far into the intersection. :) May ride it again if in the area and need to get a ride in. Would not come here just to ride this though.

This is my hometown trail. It is a mixture of blacktop trails and wide side walks with a bike lane over the bridge for the railroad tracks. The path now extends to the top of Hoosier Hill where there is ice cream available. Hoosier Hill is very steep, but the path is smooth and inviting with a few benches partway up to stop and rest on if you are so inclined. Great trail for the local population, I use it often just to go get groceries. Once the trail extends to Pokagon State Park with out the need to risk life and limb on the extremely narrow shoulder of Highway 27, then the route will be perfect and would rate five stars.
