Join us August 31st from 6pm to midnight at Books & Brews in Muncie. They are brewing a special beer, Mojito (MINT -get it?- lime) Sparkling Ale and graciously donating $1 of every pint sold to Mid-Indiana Trails. This money goes straight to maintenance and development of the Prairie Creek Trails Project (stay tuned for more exciting news on the project). Please come out and show your support!
The trails are in great shape with no trees down! Get out there and ride before the rain comes this weekend!
There are a couple trees blocking the trail about a half a mile east from the crossing at the big multi-use bridge. Please be careful and navigate them safely. Volunteers will address the issue sometime in the near future. Other than the trees, the trail is in great shape. Get out there!!
Mid-Indiana Trails has received a grant from the Ball Brothers Foundation for $40,000 that is to be used for professional building of the next sections of trail. Tentatively scheduled for construction to begin in August 2018, the South West Connector trail will run north toward a junction of the Multi-use Trail and east toward the Maple Grove. Please be courteous to the trail builders and avoid the construction areas.
Thanks to everyone who came out and participated in the Reels & Rims event and donated towards the trail project!
Some pics of the work today…there was some serious clearing of brush, digging, hauling of concrete chunks and dirt moving that ultimately resulted in a really nice and fun uphill/downhill turn! Also WIPB/Newslink Indiana came out and will be featuring a segment at the trails this Thursday the 8th, with a live feed from the trails!

Join us on Friday, October 16th at 6pm for a fun event out at Prairie Creek!
We will be hosting a group ride of the new loop at 6pm, followed by a cookout and bike movies at Graham Lodge at Red-tail’s Munsee Woods. Your $10 donation will go to help the Prairie Creek Trail Care group efforts to become a chapter of IMBA, opening up funding and resource opportunities!
BYObikes, BYOchairs and BYObeverages – we’ll provide the food & entertainment!
Join us for a weekday, afternoon trail work session followed by optional laps on the trail. It’s a Happy hour because fun trails make you HAPPY! Check our Facebook Trail Care group for details! Meet @ Red-tail Nature Preserve Lot
