A couple of new nature trails are opening up in the area.
North Liberty hosts a 5K walk, run, and bike ride Saturday to celebrate its new Stellar Trail. The new trail links up with two existing paths totaling nearly two miles through town.
In addition, the town is currently planning another section of trail out to Potato Creek State Park.
In Michigan City, a ribbon-cutting is scheduled for two weeks from now for the new Singing Sands Trail. It’s part of a trail system stretching from Chicago to southwest Michigan.
The Singing Sands Trail follows Highway 12 through Michigan City to the city’s east side.
LaPorte County will extend the trail to the Michigan State line. Construction on that extension will begin next month.
