The physical address is 10700 Bono Rd.; Terre Haute, IN 47802. If you get off of exit 7, head south on Hwy 41 until you get out of town. There are signs directing you to Fowler Park. You can turn left either on Harlan or Oregon Church. Bono Rd is a bit over a mile east of 41. If you are on Harlan turn right (south) onto Bono. If you are on Oregon Church go past entrance to Fowler Park and turn left (north) onto Bono. Entrance is about 1/2 mile either way on the East side of road.

Saturday, Aug 1st is a big day for us! In the morning, ISU will be bringing 100 students out to help clear trails. Then, in the afternoon, the 181st Air National Guard Reserve Unit will be making a site visit. The 181st is ready to mobilize their soldiers and equipment to get the LZ area whipped into shape! Amazing! AND... Nat Lopes, our Bike Park Developer with Hilride will be in town from Saturday Aug 1 - Wednesday Aug 5th! He will be onsite every day. Come out and meet the crew!

Currently we have a 1-mile beginner "kids" loop in the Basic Training Skills Area. This was our first new "test" trail and it turned out great! The "big kids" portion of this trail is a nice 6/10's of a mile that will get your heart pumping! If you are on Strava have fun getting King of the Mountain!


In addition, there are approximately 4-5 miles of existing trails ranging from old access roads to horse trails to previously "illegal" single-track. We have rehabbed about half of these trails and they are fast and fun! Some uphills, downhills with a good share of roots.


On top of the existing trails, we have constructed approximately 2 miles of new trails connecting the existing trails and creating loops around the lake. Some are fast and flow, some are a bit technical. One portion even has a nice natural bit of pump to it.


We are in the process of finishing a section of the "Lake Loop" which has some amazing views of Stryker Lake on the Southeast end. We are VERY CLOSE to tying this into the existing trail, and then we will move on to expanding the "Perimeter Loop" from the park entrance North and East to the existing trail. This section is pin-flagged and ready to dig. We have at least 4 miles of trails "initially" flagged that will come next.
