The Prairie Creek Trails area is located in the southeast corner of Prairie Creek Reservoir, near Muncie, Indiana. The trails consist of both a wide multi-use path (crushed, compacted gravel) as well as singletrack trails for hiking and mountain biking.

A surprising amount of elevation change (at least for East Central Indiana) provides ouststanding hiking and biking. The area is home to a large number of animal and plant species for your viewing pleasure. The multi-use path crosses a small stream on a wonderful bridge/overlook built by Ball State Design/Build Students.1008661_10102299235251128_7337138961939403973_o

Parking is available at the Red-tail Nature Land Conservancy Nature Preserve, where the multi-use trail connects to existing trails and the Cardinal Greenway.
