Based in Parke County in West Central Indiana, the Covered Bridge Gateway Trails Association has a vision for a trail to link trails. Their Covered Bridge Gateway Trail will form an important link between the National Road Heritage Trail and the B&O Trail, creating a 150-mile multi-trail loop.
Strung together, the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail, Maple City Greenway and the MapleHart Trail stretch from Shipshewana through Middlebury and Goshen to Elkhart. Thanks to steady construction during the past five years, the combined trails comprise an important connection for Northern Indiana trail users. Learn more at Friends of the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail.
This year, crews completed two short sections of trail in Middlebury and the Friends group celebrated with a grand opening October 9. You can read President John Yoder’s reflections on the history and significance of this trail in the August edition of Pumpkinvine Trail Talk (PDF, 3.9 MB).
With a grant provided by the Greenways Foundation, The Friends of Boone County Trails are creating the Hazelrigg Park Rest Area along the Farm Heritage Trail. The Friends are working to complete designated walk areas from the trail and the roadway and install landscape chips donated by a local tree company, Carter Tree Service. Keep up the good work!
