What better way to enjoy nature than from the seat of a bicycle riding through the rolling countryside of Marshall County. Three of the marked bike routes will take you through the towns of Culver and Plymouth, where you will be able to shop the quaint stores and enjoy some great food along the way. They also circle Lake Maxinkuckee the state’s second largest natural lake. Located about halfway between Culver and Plymouth is the Twin Lakes area which was home of the Menominee band of Potawatomi Indians. You will pass by a memorial erected to honor their chief.

As the sun breaks the horizon, head to the Café Max in Culver for a hearty breakfast before launching your boat in Lake Maxinkuckee to experience a “mighty good” day of fishing! Lake Maxinkuckee, Indiana’s second largest natural lake and ranked one of the best walleye lakes in the Midwest by Sports Afield also offers great bluegill, bass and crappie fishing both during the summer and thru the ice. For your evening meal you can’t beat the cuisine offered in the Culver restaurants.

There’s no better way to experience the culture and history of rural Northern Indiana than by hitting the road to travel through the gently rolling countryside of Marshall County and enjoy the colorful quilt-pattern murals that adorn historic barns, family homesteads and public spaces. Indiana’s first Barn Quilt Trail takes visitors along country roads, combining an appreciation for agricultural heritage, artistic talent and local history. It also helps showcase some of the many other attractions and venues throughout the county, including local shops, restaurants and farmer’s markets. The art of quilt making has come full circle since the first women settlers brought it from Europe to America’s shores. Then quilts and quilting echoed the social and economic history of families and communities. Today, the Barn Quilt Trail contributes to telling stories, bringing color and interest to our counties’ already beautiful landscapes.

Marshall County offers two uniquely different trails for our visitors to enjoy! The Potawatomi Wildlife Park offers nearly five miles of trails that are open daily from sunrise to sunset for your enjoyment. All trails are rated easy to moderate and offer a relaxing change of pace as they wind through forests and fields past wetlands and the Tippecanoe River. There are many habitats in the Park and in them you will find a variety of trees, shrubs and wildflowers. These habitats provide cover for most species of wildlife found in northern Indiana including several endangered and threatened species. You may might see any of these animals while on a hike through the Park. The city of Plymouth has developed a 2.2 mile asphalt covered Greenway that is a scenic, sometimes rolling path through parkland, woods and wetlands. Significant portions run beside the Yellow River and offer opportunity for viewing natural plants and wildlife native to the area. The Greenways were built so that everyone can have a day of adventure. Walkers, runners, skaters, cyclists and folks who simply enjoy nature can take advantage of this recreational opportunity.
