      Quickly becoming the most popular mountain bike/hiking trail in Indiana, this approximately 10-mile, single-track loop circles the Park property and offers a challenging track for hikers and riders. Please exercise caution and know your limitations as this trail will be difficult for beginners and first-time riders. Trail closes at dark.

      Westwood Park was created by the Big Blue River Conservancy District and opened to the public in 1974. The park’s main attraction is a 180-acre lake. Formed by an earthen dam, the resulting lake serves several purposes: sediment storage and flood control for Big Blue River: water for municipal or industrial water supply, and recreation. The facility covers approximately 800 acres.

      The park is open year round to the public for a variety of recreational activities. Fishing is excellent for bass, sunfish, crappie and channel catfish. A small modern campground is located near the lake and is open from May through October. Picnicking, hiking, mountain biking, a horse trail, shelter house and play field are some of the day use activities to be found. Some facilities are handicapped accessible.

      While in the park, one may have the opportunity to see many types of wildlife that are present in the various habitats. Hiking trails, the horse trail and mountain bike trail offer wonderful scenery of deciduous woodlands, abandoned grasslands and rolling hills. Numerous species of trees native to Indiana may be found in the park.

      Mature Bald Eagle sightings lately. If you see it please let the park staff know when and where.

      Access Info:
      Head straight past the Guard House entrance until there is a large parking lot on your left. Park here and cross the street you entered on to begin the trails. Remember that this is a ten mile ride and once you begin there is no turning back because of the lake, so make sure you have what you need like water before you begin the trail.
