Experience Indiana’s Unique Hiking and Biking Trails

Indiana’s hiking and biking trails are a fun way to enjoy outdoor recreation.

Garfield the Cat Trail

Paying homage to America's most famous cartoon cat, the Garfield Trail stretches across northern Indiana communities including Gas City, Marion, and Fairmount – Garfield creator Jim Davis’ home town. The trail features statues depicting Garfield in different attire, in theme with various municipal commemorations.

The Speedking Statue in Swayzee shows the lasagna lover ready to shoot hoops dressed in a basketball uniform. Other popular Garfield statues include Upland’s Scream for Ice Cream and the Firefighter in Jonesboro.

Nickel Plate Trail

Stretching for 40 miles from Cassville to Rochester, the Nickel Plate Trail is a former railroad track paved over and transformed into a hiking and biking trail. Running alongside Highway 31 in the northern Indiana region, the trail is open all year-long - you can walk, hike, ride, or skate it in the warmer months or cross-country ski it in the winter.

If you use the trail, be prepared for an enjoyable and peaceful ride through the Indiana countryside near Peru. Reconnect with nature as you pass woodlands, wetlands, small creeks, and various plant and animal life - the sights, sounds, and scents of the country are sure to invigorate your ride.
