Biking Through Indiana Parks

The trails of Indiana parks really do appeal to mountain bike enthusiasts, or as I like to refer to them, psychotics. So the appeal of mountain bikes has now been shifted to thrill you get while taking a misstep and tumbling down a hill. What a rush. So “mountain biking” from here on out will just refer to me and Sedona walking trails together and me trying to stop her from always chasing after local wildlife. Last Sunday I was thinking to myself, “let’s sum up all of our mountain biking adventures throughout Indiana together Sedona.” I guess I was more talking aloud to my dog than I was actually thinking to myself, but these are all technicalities lately. Once while Sedona and I were “mountain biking” through the trails of Pokagon state park in Richmond Indiana we saw roughly 12 gray squirrels. It was quite a rush! There they also have a wonderful toboggan sled that they keep covered in ice all winter long to ensure that you can reach speeds in excess of 55 kmph. whoa! What a rush!

In the time of your writing this I have visited somewhere in the neighborhood of 6 state parks in Indiana. I have found every one of them to be very fun and extremely exhilarating when enjoyed with my pal Sedona. In a small park in Pendleton Indiana called Falls park you will find some very fun trails that follow a few winding creeks and even some tunnels running underneath railroad tracks. A very fun way to spend an afternoon is just watching the trains go back and following the trails throughout the wilderness. There is also a few breathtaking views a of a sea foam green bridge that you must know are picture worthy. Just breathtaking. There is also a disc golf course located along the trails of this park. I hear that game is very popular with the younger generation of freethinkers and disc throwers. There are some beautiful waterfalls located at this park which is where it gets its name. These are some of the best waterfalls you will find in the eastern Indiana area that are completely viewable from a car, if you really don’t feel like getting out into the outdoors and deal with all the insects and the sun and that whole thing.

White river state park is located near Avon Indiana and it is quite a nice park if you are looking to have a family reunion or take your kids to a large swimming pool with a security system. There are also lifeguards on duty so you can rest assured that you don’t need to pay that much attention to your kids. They have several picnic benches and areas for charcoal grills to be used by families of all sizes. There is also a very nice play set there where all of the children can get together and just run amuck however they feel. Once you get them there you can just listen for their screams and make sure they’re misbehaving like usual. The local kids always make their way over there too so there’s always someone to keep them company if Jack Daniel is keeping you company during the afternoon.
