Walking & Biking Through Fall in Fort Wayne

Previous Next

Stroll or pedal through breathtaking fall foliage

With more than 100 miles of trails in Fort Wayne, there are some great fall bike ride or hike routes. Plus, many of Fort Wayne’s trails, including the Rivergreenway travel along Fort Wayne’s riverfront providing beautiful natural river landscapes.

For early fall color change, take the Towpath Trailhead near Eagle Marsh for sunflowers and wetland vistas.

Grab your bike for a ride along the St. Joseph River just past the State Blvd Bridget along to Johnny Appleseed Park. Head to the north trail network from Cook Road to Wallen Road to enjoy Maple Trees in valley areas, which are particularly beautiful late September to the end of October.

For late fall colors, the Rivergreenway is a great destination including the St. Joseph Pathway connecting Shoaff Park and Johnny Appleseed Park; the St. Marys Pathway connecting Tillman Park to Swinney Park; and the Maumee Pathway connecting North Anthony Blvd to Moser Park. On these paths, you’ll find a variety of trees including Oaks, Ash, Hickories, Sycamores, Cottonwoods, Basswood and more.

And, don't forget about the Native Trees River Walk located on the Purdue Fort Wayne Campus. As you walk along the St. Joseph river you'll see over 100 tree species native to Indiana.
