N. Ind. park creates 1.25-mile prairie maze walk

A northern Indiana park is taking a page from the operators of popular fall corn mazes by offering visitors a chance to get lost in a prairie maze instead.

Potato Creek State Park's prairie maze opens to the public Sept. 14, giving visitors a chance to wander through 1.25 miles of meandering maze pathways cut through a restored tallgrass prairie that's filled with grasses that grow about seven feet tall.

The prairie maze located about 10 miles southwest of South Bend near the town of North Liberty includes several stops with riddles about prairies.

The maze is free but admission to the park costs $5 for in-state vehicles and $7 for out-of-state vehicles. Maps of the maze are available at the park's entrance gate, park office and nature center.
