Winter Solstice Walk/Ride & Bonfire
Thursday, December 21st, 5:30 P.M. to 8:00 P.M.
On the shortest day of the year, let's light the night! Bring a flashlight or battery-operated lantern and join us by wheel or heel as we celebrate the Winter Solstice on the Pufferbelly Trail! We encourage all cyclists to light up their bikes for fun, but require at least a front, white light and rear red reflector. The walk/ride will kick off at 5:30 p.m. and we will gather back at Salomon Farm afterwards for refreshments, a bonfire, and activities. This is a free, community event sponsored by The City of Fort Wayne, Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation, and Fort Wayne Trails, Inc. Follow Salomon Farm or Fort Wayne Trails on Facebook for updates and weather-related cancellations.
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!
Please note: Some trail counts contain averages due to temporary counter failures.

Support Trails with a Trails License Plate!
Consider a purchase of this Trails Plate to show your support for all types of trails in Indiana. The foundation will use the proceeds as grants to trail groups throughout the state of Indiana. This special plate is an additional $40, of which $25 goes to the Greenways Foundation. The Greenways Foundation envisions a statewide trail, greenway, and bikeway system that provides access to trails for all Indiana citizens. This world-class Hoosier greenways system connects scenic, cultural, historic, recreational, tourist, and economic sites in Indiana’s urban and rural communities, is convenient to people of all cultures, ages, and abilities, and is one of the state’s most powerful tools in achieving economic growth, a healthy citizenry and livable communities.
