Visionary thinking motivates the Northeast Indiana Regional Coordinating Council (our 2021 Outstanding Local Government recipient) to create and update the Northeast Indiana United Trails Plan. It identifies bicycle and pedestrian corridors in Steuben, DeKalb, Allen and Wells Counties, including the network’s spine, the Poka-Bache Connector. This 81-mile pathway will connect Pokagon State Park in Angola to Oubache (pronounced “Wabash”) State Park in Bluffton, which will help bring tourism and cultural development all along its path. Parts of the trail already are done or are being built, especially in the urban areas.
One such segment is Fort Wayne’s Pufferbelly Trail, and Fort Wayne Trails is hosting its 12th Annual Pufferbelly Run/Walk/Stroll. This one-mile to 10-kilometer event will be Saturday, July 17, 2021, with proceeds to help further development of the Pufferbelly. Register today to help do your part!
