LaSalle Trail north of Cleveland Road

This is one of my favorite local rides. Last fall (2022) the county added another cycle safety light at Auten Rd. Similar to the safety light at Cleveland, it makes this trail one of the safest in the area.

northern Indiana- Michigan border

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.

Short but sweet

This trail is a mile if you walk out to Michigan St at the south end. As promised, the LaSalle Big Blue-stem trail has prairie grass along it. Though close to the highway, it is surprisingly quiet and secluded. There are a lot of birds along this trail. While flat, it is sun filled and green. There is also parking and access at the dead-ends at the west end of W Clark St. and W Willow Dr. There is also Visitor parking at the Cripe St. crossing.
