If you encounter any downed trees or safety concerns, please call or email the Greenways Dept at (260)427-6228 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .  

Please be aware, during or following a rainfall, portions of the trail network may be muddy and/or slippery. Please slow down and use caution, especially on boardwalks.  Always use caution whenever you encounter a wet section of trail.  During the winter months, be mindful of the potential for ice. In the instance of accumulating snowfall, trails are cleared when 3 or more inches are recorded.


Trail Closures and Detours:


Trail Tree Work: Tree work is slated to begin along the trail system on 2/6/23. Weather permitting, work will begin on the north end of the Pufferbelly Trail and work south over the coming days. Other trails will be affected at later dates - this post will be updated as different trails are affected. Trail users can expect intermittent delays and, at some times, closures of small sections. Trail users should use caution and respect posted signage and barricades to ensure safety. 


Homestead Rd. Trail: Utility work is being carried out along the Homestead Rd.Trail between Covington Rd. and Aboite Center Rd. Please use caution in the area. 


Rivergreenway Pathways:

  • Beginning January 16th, 2023, the foot bridge separating Headwaters Park and the Old Fort will be closed due to a riverbank restoration project. The estimated reopening is late spring. Please follow the detour in place (map below) to navigate around this closure. 
  • The pedestrian bridge just South of Lawton Park will close beginning 11/23/22 for reconstruction. A posted detour is in place. Please note that this will be a long-term closure. While this bridge is part of the St.Marys Pathway, its location is important to the connection of all Rivergreenway Pathways, meaning that many Rivergreenway trail users may be impacted. We apologize for the inconvenience.
  • A posted detour is available for both of the above closures. View the map here


Spy Run Bridge:The below-grade crossing at Spy Run is closed for construction. The east sidewalk has been opened to allow for trail users to pass. Please note that the sidewalk is not at full width at this time. Trail users should cross at the intersection of Lafayette St & Superior St. A utilities project has closed a section of sidewalk that serves as a trail connection on the east side of Lafayette St. near Three Rivers Apartments. Trail users should utilize the west sidewalk to navigate around the closure.


Water Filtration Plant: A damaged utility has cause the placement of a pump on the trail just west of the water filtration plant. The trail narrows significantly as users pass through the area. The trail remains open. Please use caution. 


Landin Road Trail: A section of the Landin Road Trail (east side) is closed for construction north of North River Road. Please utilize the trail on the west side to bypass the area. Contact New Haven Parks (260-749-2212) with questions. 


Dupont Road Trail: Repairs are being made to a small section of trail just west of Salomon Farm. As work continues, there may be periods of impassability. Trail users are encouraged to navigate around the closure if possible or utilize the sidewalk on the North side of the street.
