South Bend’s Northside Trail closely follows the east bank of the St. Joseph River from Howard Park to the western edge of Mishawaka. Along the way, you’ll have access to Viewing Park and Veterans Memorial Park, offering pleasant places to rest and picnic. The campus of Indiana University South Bend is also located along the route.
Between 26th Street and 27th Street, the trail passes through stone walls originally built in the 1930s by the Works Progress Administration. At the Northside Trail’s northern end in Howard Park, there is a direct connection to the East Bank Trail, which continues north to the edge of the University of Notre Dame’s campus.
Parking is available at the north end of the trail in Howard Park (219 S. St. Louis Boulevard) and near the trail’s midpoint at Veterans Memorial Park (Northside Boulevard and Twyckenham Drive).
