Three trails, the MapleHeart Trail, Maple City Greenway and the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail connect Elkhart, Goshen, Middlebury and Shipshewana. The trail system passes through urban areas, small towns and agricultural communities. The countryside along the trails includes the third largest Amish community in the United States.
Most of this 16.5- mile trail is on the abandoned Pumpkinvine railroad corridor. The trail surface is asphalt, except from State Road 4 to County Road (CR) 28 northeast of Goshen where the packed limestone surface is accessible and suitable for narrow-tired bicycles. Maps are available on website.
The trails are managed by Elkhart County Parks, Goshen Parks and Recreation, Middlebury Parks and Recreation and the Town of Shipshewana.
