This is the newest addition to the Lafayette trail system and is where the majority of TMBA building efforts are going. Just up the hill from the old foundation is the completed loop. Starting to the right begins a series of switchbacks to climb the hill. This loop has a moderate aerobic difficulty.

Access Info

There is a small gravel lot off of Old State Rd 25 just over one mile West of Americus, IN. There is an old foundation and a gravel entry on the South side of Old SR 25.
