Millrace Trail Description

The Millrace Trail meanders through wooded parkland on the west side of downtown Goshen, a walkable town itself with historical buildings and nice shops. The scenic trail follows the hydraulic canal between Shoup Parsons Woods and the north end of Shanklin Park. Along the way, you'll cross several bridges over the canal. At Shoup Parsons, you can learn your trees with the aid of interpretive trail.

Between Millrace and Shanklin parks, you can pick up the Shanklin-Mullet Trail by the creek and take it a short distance northwest to Mullet Park.

On the north end of the trail, you can also head east along E. Washington Street for 6 blocks to connect to the Central City Trail, which in turn links to the beautiful and well-loved Pumpkinvine Nature Trail, as well as Goshen College.

Parking and Trail Access

Park at Mill Race Park off W. Plymouth Avenue/SR 119 and at the end of Westwood Road.
