Hiking & Biking Trails

The Blue River Trail currently begins at Whitley Street next to the Fire Museum, continues past the YMCA and on into Morsches Park. The total length of the trial is approximately 4.6 miles if you begin at Whitley Street, travel around the pond at Morsches Park, and head back to Whitley Street. The expansion was completed spring 2013. It was expanded from Morsches Park to DeMoney & Grimes Funeral home which added .8 miles to the current trails. There is a new bridge added over the Blue River and all the steel was donated by Steel Dynamics Industry.

The Mountain bike trail is 7 miles or more of minimally groomed tight winding single-track. The official trailhead is located at the maintenance barn parking lot near the park entrance; this is where the trail starts and ends. This trail was designed for the off-road cyclist but also serves as a local training trail for runners and recreational hikers.
