Moser Park Nature Trail #1 is a 1.4 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near New Haven, Indiana that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
A simple walk through the woods on a paved trail. This would be an excellent lunch time hike, or a good place to walk the dog if you live in the area. There is a very large pavilion near the trailhead if you'd like to make a picnic of it, along with a pier for fishing or feeding the ducks and geese. During the winter there is even ice skating. The trail itself is definitely not the greatest I have ever walked. It proclaims to be a nature trail, but I think it has turned more into a Frisbee golf course than anything. It is a pleasant walk during the fall though. At the end there are two exits if you don't want to turn back to where you started. One is a wooden staircase; the other is a wooden ramp for bikes and wheelchairs.

This is a nice short little trail in New Haven that is actually part of the River Greenway through Ft. Wayne. We took our grandson Kaden with us and let him ride his bike. This is paved and completely in the woods. At least the section we walked was. It was only .32 miles one way. We had never been to Moser Park in New Haven. There is not a lot here. A small pond for fishing and a picnic shelter. It was a nice evening walk with Kaden riding his bike.
