Fast flowing single track. Great trail for beginners. Intermediate and advanced riders can work on their speed at Potato Creek.
Potato Creek is in north-central Indiana about 12 miles southwest of South Bend. The park features a wide array of activities and facilities for year-round enjoyment. Making reservations is advisable to enjoy some of the facilities at this very popular park.
A variety of natural habitats await, including the 327-acre Worster Lake, old fields, mature woodlands, restored prairies, and diverse wetlands. Each offers unique opportunities for plant and wildlife observation.
Tips: Start at Peppermint Hill to move the climb from the beginning of the trail to the end of the ride. Ride early in the day to have the trail to yourself. The beach is a great place to cool off in June and early July.
