Mountain bike trail opens Friday at Brown County State Park

Brown County State Park will be dedicating a mountain bike trail on Friday morning. The park will be celebrating the addition of Weed Patch Trail, a 2.4 mile mountain bike trail constructed in partnership with the Hoosier Mountain Bike Association.

Parks officials say Weed Patch Trail will provide an integral connection between the campground, the Limekiln Trail and the rest of Brown County’s existing 36-mile mountain bike trail system. Funding for the project includes a Next Level Trails grant to HMBA, who is providing the required match dollars. The grant includes Weed Patch and two other new mountain bike trails in the park, which will total 7.5 miles of new trail by 2021.

Mountain bike trails in Brown County State Park are multi-use and are open to hiking as well as cycling.
