PARKE COMMUNITY RAIL TRAIL
Parke Community Rail Trail is a trail being built on the former Pennsylvania Railroad right of way between Rosedale and Rockville. On the way, it will cross over Big Racoon Creek and Little Racoon Creek. The land in this part of Indiana is extraordinarily beautiful and picturesque as it traverses a rolling agricultural landscape. When completed, the trail will be around 12 miles long. This includes a roughly half-mile-long trail that already exists in Rosedale. On the north end, the trail will connect with the Parke County Visitors Center in Rockville. Long-term strategic planning has the trail running further northeast to Guion where it would connect to the B&O Trail.
