USI boasts many miles of multi-use trails on its scenic 1,400-acre campus
When I started my page at http://southernindianatrails.freehostia.com , Usi only had some rough backwoods trails and the USI- Burdette trail did not exist at all. Things have come a long way over the last 10 years and hopefully there will be more to come.
USI boasts many miles of multi-use trails on its scenic 1,400-acre campus open to the University community and to the public.
The most recent trail is the USI-Burdette Trail, completed in 2012. This three-mile paved trail is the result of a USI/Burdette Park partnership. It is a diverse, interesting, and educational route for hikers, bicyclists, and runners. The scenic trail allows users to witness Southwestern Indiana’s natural beauty while connecting a picturesque park with one of the nation’s most beautiful college campuses. The trail is a key connection to an area of river bottom land, with an additional 37 miles of paved roads currently signed for bicycle use south of Burdette Park. The USI-Burdette Park Trail is a designated destination point of the American Discovery Trail, which passes through Southern Indiana. The trail also has been named a National Recreation Trail by the Secretary of the Interior.
