Creekside Trails

Creekside Trails is a multi-use trail system with 13+ miles of soft surface corridors for biking, hiking and walking. 

The vision of the Creekside Trails is to create a safe and enjoyable recreational walking and riding area for Porter County in Valparaiso, Indiana.

The mission is for the Creekside Trails:

  • To be free and open to the public and all members of the community;
  • Provide a full spectrum, recreational riding experience for riders of all ages, skills and abilities;
  • To be an extension of the paved pathways that connect Valparaiso;
  • Serve the non-motorized transportation community with off-road trails;
  • Provide sustainable revenue for the ongoing maintenance and operation of the facility.
