(Versailles, IN) – Versailles State Park and the Southeast Indiana Mountain Bike Association (SIMBA) conducted a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony for the opening of a new mountain biking trail on Saturday.
The “Potato Peeler” trail can be found between Finks and Hassmer Hill Roads. Adding just over five miles of tread for mountain bikers and hikers, this addition creates around 30 miles of trails dedicated to mountain biking and hiking.
This is the second of two trails constructed with a Next Level Trails (NLT) grant awarded to SIMBA. The first trail was completed in the Spring of 2022.
The trail was made possible through the Next Level Trails Grant and matching funds raised by SIMBA. The matching funds were raised through donations from the local community, many volunteer hours, and help from the mountain bike community in the surrounding area.
Mountain biking trails in Versailles State Park are multi-use and are open to hiking, trail running, and bicycling. Riders should obtain a $5 daily or $20 annual off-road cycling pass before using park mountain bike trails.
