Went to Plum Creek today to play with my son, trails are in good shape dry and not too rutted from the horses. Some narrow paths from the weed growth. Did not get on th west side of the creek. Send me a private message if willing to do some work out there to get more milage. There are a coulpe of small things that need to be done to get the loops passible, like some bridges and fallen trees. Thanks

Is there a group that's organized to help out around the area or support the trail? If not maybe these groups might be ones to contact.

CAMBR (http://www.cambr.org.) Chicago area mountain bikers.
HMBA - (www.hmba.org) Hoosier Mountain Bike Association.

It's so close to the border I'm sure that local riders (from Indiana) should be willing to lend a hand.

My understanding about plum creek ...

...

My understanding about Plum Creek Nature Preserve is the trails out there aren't authorized. You'll be hard pressed to get CAMBR or COBA to help when you don't have the landowners permission.

I would suggest mounting a campaign to GET permission. CAMBR or COBA probably would help with that. In the mean time, there are trails at Stoney Run in Crown Point that are decent and the best trails in the area are at Imagination Glen: http://home.comcast.net/~willtsmith
