Bicycle and pedestrian trails to
Elkhart, Goshen, Middlebury and Shipshewana
Elkhart, Goshen, Middlebury and Shipshewana are connected by 25 miles of trails when present development plans are complete. The two sections, totaling 2.25 miles, shown in brown on the map below are on county roads. This Trail Overview page gives information about various sections of the trails.
The trails are managed by four agencies: Elkhart County Parks and Recreation, Goshen Parks and Recreation, Middlebury Parks Department and the Town of Shipshewana.
The trail surface is asphalt except for 1.75 miles of packed limestone surface from SR 5 to CR 28 northeast of Goshen.
Four public parks, Oak Ridge Park, Ox Bow Park, Abshire Park and Krider Garden, are connected by the trail network. These parks provide parking and restrooms.
The trail network passes through urban areas, small towns and agricultural communities. The countryside along the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail includes the third largest Amish community in the U.S.
