Where to scuba dive next? Aruba? Antigua? … Indiana? France Park in Logansport to be exact. The old Kenith Stone quarry in north-central Indiana isn’t tropical or exotic but it makes scuba diving accessible in the Midwest. “France Park is the premier dive site in Indiana,” says William Baker, who manages the Indy Dive Center. “It’s a great location and most of the time the water is clear. We’ve got lots of fish in there and a lot of things to see.” Visit the Indy Dive Center for full details.
The fifteen miles of trails within France Park range from flat and easy to gnarly and difficult. Some descents will cause cyclists to take pause and consider walking down. A few cobbled climbs will have most cyclists dismounting and doing a cyclo-cross impersonation. There are plenty of flat sections, however, that offer a nice respite between challenges. The price of admission is 3 dollars, and helmets are mandatory. The good news is that some of the collected money is invested back into the upkeep of trails. Trail surface is singletrack, doubletrack, gravel, and asphalt.

Cut through a scenic, wooded section of the park using a mix of Mach III and Spider Web III baskets. Seven holes are open and nearly flat, while the other 17 holes are hilly and in the forest. There is an OB paved path on a couple holes, any casual water is not OB.
Remember to bring your own discs!
After a quick hike from the beach to the highest cliff overlooking the swimming lake, participants will be fitted with a harness with two pulleys, one for each of the cables that span the 1,400 feet from the cliff to a platform on the edge of the water below. Take the leap from a nearly 100-foot cliff and travel over the park’s swimming lake at 30 to 45 miles per hour. Comment: "It's kind of intense when you get up on the platform. When you see that cable stretched across the top of that water, your nerves start shaking." However, the anxiety decreases after the initial leap off the cliff.
Zip line Opens around noon or 1pm Saturday and Sunday ONLY. Weather Permitting.
We do allow groups to call in a specific date they would like to do the zipline.
