Find fitness, fun, and new friends on the trails! Join the City of Fort Wayne, Fort Wayne Trails, and Trek Fort Wayne every Tuesday for weekly Trek the Trails bike rides! Returning for its second year, the City of Fort Wayne, Fort Wayne Trails, and the Fort Wayne Running Club are also joining forces to present Tread the Trails! These 5k walks/runs are offered every other Thursday. All mobility aids are welcome at Tread the Trails, and participants are encouraged to lengthen/shorten the route as preferred. All skill levels are welcome to all trail events – bring your family, bring your friends, or just bring yourself! Distances and locations vary, ensuring that participants can experience as many of the trail system’s nearly 130 miles as possible. Bicyclists are asked to wear helmets. All participants should bring water. Participants are responsible for their own safety. Trek the Trails is sponsored by TREK Bicycles, Freedom Cycle, VS Engineering, UAW Local #2209, and Three Rivers Velo Sport.

Safe Trails are Happy Trails.

Mid-Block Crossings can be confusing for everyone.  Who has the right of way? When should cars stop? When can pedestrians cross?

Watch this video to learn more about the proper way to navigate crossing in the middle of a street, rather than at an intersection!



 When traveling on city streets, bicycles have the same duties and rights as motorists.  Know and practice the rules of the road. 



Who is using the Trails?

Infrared counters are positioned throughout the Fort Wayne Regional Trails Network to help staff understand how residents are using the trail system. Find out how many trail users we counted in 2022, plus learn more about which trails were used the most frequently!
