Help Us Develop the Pufferbelly Trail!

Join us for the 15th Annual Pufferbelly Run/Walk/Stroll. We’ll run the race on the Pufferbelly Trail. The proceeds from this event will be used to further our work developing trails, including new sections of the Pufferbelly Trail. When completed, the trail will be part of the Poka-Bache Connector, running from Ouabache State Park in Bluffton to Pokagon State Park in Angola. This 81-mile connector trail will bring Steuben, Dekalb, Allen, and Wells communities together. This trail is a crucial part of the United Trails project in our region. It is planned as a tourist destination and for cultural growth for residents in all four counties. Ultimately, this trail will solidify the fact that Northeast Indiana is a thriving, culturally rich, active, and healthy community that’s a fun place to visit and a great place to live.
