Description and Tips
The countryside that this trail passes through is beautiful, with picturesque farms, livestock, fields, and ponds. You might spot horse-drawn carriages! On warm days, trees lining most of the path will shade you from the sun for a comfortable ride. Shipshewana is well-known for the Amish community in the area, and for the Shipshewana Trading Place flea market (Tuesdays and Wednesdays in the summer) and antique auction (Tuesdays year round). Shipshewana also has many hotels, B&Bs, and Amish-style restaurants. Goshen is also a historical town with many interesting sights. If you arrive at Goshen and want to carry on, you can continue to Elkhart on the Maple City Greenway and MapleHeart Trail.
