Boy Scout Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A loop trail through ravines and over logging roads, with its closing stretch along the Mississinewa River.

Explore the 104-acre battlefield or visit the museum or the nature center to learn more. The linear nature and distance of this trail will require you to arrange a vehicle shuttle or be willing to backtrack. There are additional trailheads along the route, at Davis Ferry Park, Lafayette Municipal Golf Course, and Tapawingo Park. Spring rains can flood out some sections of the trail, but rerouting has taken care of most of the problems."

This is an easy trail, and there is a large section that is paved so it's great for people with small kids who use strollers or for street bikes. It's a flat trail, not horribly strenuous but travels through some pretty woods and fields. There's a section that goes next to the Wabash River wich is always great to watch or stop and sit by, but watch out if the river is high because a good portion of the trail by the river floods. (There's also a section of the paved trail that goes by the water treatment plant...not the best view in the city, but there's an information sign posted by it if you're interested.) I haven't been all the way to Battleground yet on this trail, but from what I've heard it's basically the same the whole way through. A great place for an afternoon stroll to enjoy a beautiful day!
