2020 Hike #30 on July 9th at Prairie Creek Park in Vigo County Indiana

52 Hike Challenge

General Info 

Prairie Creek Park is a park managed by Vigo County Indiana. It is located at 3230 W. French Drive in Prairie Creek Indiana.

Prairie Creek Park is best known for its Sugar Camp. In late January through early March, maple trees are tapped within the park. The sap is collected and routed using plastic tubing and pump systems to a holding tank located next to the Sugar Cabin. The Sugar Cabin is an authentic log cabin outfitted with evaporating equipment to produce maple syrup.

On its south border, Prairie Creek Park adjoins a 13.4 acre lake. At the front of the park is a small 1.8 acre pond. Channel catfish, large mouth bass, redear sunfish, bluegill, and black crappie can be found in these bodies of water.

Within the park proper, one long, moderate, continuous trail winds in and about the grounds with numerous access points. To find out more information on Facebook, click here.

My visit

Sadie accompanied me on the #30 hike of 2020. We visited the park in the early morning, but it was still a warm one! This park's trails are well kept and easy to follow. We logged 1.8 miles. Scroll down to see my pics from this hike!
