Trail advocates in Michiana have combined their efforts to create the Indiana-Michigan River Valley Trail, an amalgam of bike-ped paths from Mishawaka through downtown South Bend and north to Niles. With a combined length of 17 miles, the greenways often follow the St. Joseph River, much of which is a popular blueway trail, particularly the internationally-known East Race Trail. Multiple spurs allow the IMRVT to connect universities & schools, parks, hospitals, cultural attractions, business districts and two YMCAs. The most recent addition, the East Bank-LaSalle Connector Trail, a Next Level Trail Round 1 project, was completed this fall.

Our friends at the Cardinal Greenway are getting some well-earned national attention for its new Kitselman Trailhead, soon to be formally dedicated. In related blueway trail news, Muncie removed two of its five lowhead dams on White River, making paddling safer and more inviting.
Connectivity! Friends of Monroe County Greenways reports the Monroe County Council has approved funding for a connector trail from the Karst Farm Greenway to the in-city Bloomington trail system.
Pogue’s Run Trail is getting revitalized, thanks to a neighborhood initiative called Pathways Over Pogue’s that is raising money to repair the historic 1903 Nowland Avenue Bridge, a classic example of the Luten Arch.
The Greenways Foundation awarded a grant to POP to help pay for the design phase of the project.
