Trek the Trails returns for 9th season
Weather is warming up, and Fort Wayne residents are itching to get out and about. It's the perfect time to join the popular, free guided tours known as Trek the Trails.
Season nine offers new exploration on our 107-mile regional trail network beginning tomorrow. Ten of this year's routes are new, featuring recently completed trails that riders experience, embrace and enjoy. Tuesday, May 1, is the first of the rides that will take play each Tuesday night at 6:00 p.m. through Sept. 25. Adults should accompany children, and all riders are encouraged to wear helmets. For a complete list of trail rides visit www.cityoffortwayne.org/trekthetrails.
The kick-off ride is 9-miles and begins at the Towpath Trailhead on Engle Rd – near 7001 Engle Rd. A Kick-off Party and fundraiser for Fort Wayne Trails Inc. will follow the ride. Tickets for the party are $10 for adults, and children under 18 are free. The celebration will feature a DJ, food and cash bar provided by Halls Restaurants.
Trek the Trails was started by Mayor Tom Henry and the City of Fort Wayne and is now sponsored by the City and Fort Wayne Trails Inc.
