NEWS FROM INDIANA'S NEIGHBORS

Trail News from Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, and Ohio

As trail development and usage accelerate in Indiana, we anticipate that non-motorized connections across state lines into such metro areas as Chicago, Cincinnati, and Louisville will grow out of necessity and in popularity.  We have already seen examples of this in the tremendously popular Big Four bridge pathway over the Ohio River between Jeffersonville, IN and Louisville, the Pennsy Greenway connecting Munster, IN with Lansing, IL, and the LaSalle Trail and Indiana-Michigan River Valley Trail connecting the South Bend area with Niles MI.  We are better as a trail building and trail advocacy organization when we research what our neighbors are doing, understand best practices, and promote ideas that better serve the population rather than those that do not.  To that end, we have dedicated a portion of our webpage to highlight news stories coming from our neighboring states.  Enjoy!
