In October 2011, the MapleHeart, which connects to the Maple City Greenway at the Goshen city limits, was connected to the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail on Goshen's north side. As a result, you can now ride off road for about 15 miles starting at Hively Ave. in Elkhart, going through Goshen and northeast on the Pumpkinvine to CR. A fun ride is from Absire Park on S.R. 4 to Ox Bow Park where you can ride a circular trail in the park. There is no admission charge to the park for bicycles.
A unique feature of the trail in Goshen is that it goes through the old and large Oakridge Cemetery. Continuing east it passes through Oakridge Park, along Rock Run Creek to Main Street where it connects to the Pumpkinvine on what was once a railroad right of way. The right of way was destroyed at Third Street when the city built an bridge over the Norfolk Southern main line. As you approach the Third Street overpass from the west, notice the remains of the old railroad road bed on the north side. There are rest rooms at Oakridge and Oxbow parks. The combination of the urban Maple City Greenway and MapleHeart Trail and the rural Pumpkinvine Nature Trail makes for a ride of great variety and interest.
