    Indiana-Michigan River Valley Trail – What would you think about a 34 mile bike trail connecting Niles, MI to Mishawaka, IN with future plans to extend east to Elkhart and north to Berrien Springs?  Pretty awesome, we think.  St. Joseph County Parks is working on the section between Roseland and the Indiana/Michigan state line.
