The Greenways Foundation annual luncheon will again feature the opportunity to “talk trails” with other greenway enthusiasts from around the state and listen to a memorable speaker — Stephen Jepson! Stephen will talk about his philosophy of lifetime fitness called Never Leave the Playground. At age 72, his secret is to “just keep moving” through constant play, not exercise.
The event is Tuesday, February 25, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Hyatt Regency Indianapolis.
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).
