Van Bibber Creek Trail Description

The Van Bibber Creek, Park and Trail all owe their name to Isaac van Bibber, an early settler to the area.  The trail begins on Oak Street and heads west in the swathe cut by the creek through the Stenger Soccer Complex. Once outside the soccer park, the trail meanders behind residences up to Ward Road/ SR 72 where it dips under the thoroughfare and emerges in the Van Bibber Park. This open space offers a slice of undisturbed nature within an otherwise urban setting, with riparian wetlands and grasslands that are home to varied wildlife. Dogs and horses are welcome too – in fact, the segment in the park the only stretch of the trail that allows equestrian use. The park also features a tangle of soft-surface trails branching off from the main concrete greenway. The trail concludes at the Indiana Street trailhead.

Parking and Trail Access

The western trailhead is located at 5590 Indiana Street. There's ample parking there.  

You can also park at the other end of Van Bibber Park at the Ward Road Trailhead (5575 Ward Road).
