Winn Loop – Completed August 2018
After Big Kame is completed, the Waterloo Trail will progress into its marquee segment, the Winn Loop (orange on map). Named after the majestic body of water known as the Winnewana Impoundment that much of this segment overlooks, the Winn Loop will sweep through rolling, glacier-made terrain with forests of Oak and Hickory. The capstone of this segment and perhaps the whole Waterloo Trail will be the trail’s passage through the Winnewana Escarpment, a steep ridgeline with drops of several hundred feet down to Winnewana Impoundment. Sweeping, scenic vistas will be the norm as riders traverse several large boulder-strewn swales which crisscross the ridgeline. Riding challenge and beauty will be at their peak as riders drop down south on the Winn.
