For my family, going for a walk is an everyday event. While not everyone has the time to go out and enjoy a little nature walk everyday, June 2 is your excuse to make the time and enjoy your local trails. Northeast Indiana has plentiful, beautiful trails that make your walking, jogging, biking and skating safe and scenic. Thanks to many updates around the region, trails are accessible for strollers and wheelchairs so folks of all abilities can enjoy them.
You don’t have to live in Fort Wayne to experience the trails. Almost every county in our region boasts a beautiful contribution to the trail system. So grab a friend or your puppy and start moving towards the trail closest to you!
