Kokomo's nickname is the "City of Firsts" and the Industrial Heritage Trail celebrates its progressive and inventive past with public art and signage highlighting the historic significance of some of the nearby factory buildings. It was here that the first successful test-run of the "horseless carriage" (the internal combustion engine) took place and where stainless steel flatware and the first mechanical corn picker, among other inventions, began.
This urban trail follows a former rail line along Home Avenue, stretching one mile from East Boulevard to Markland Avenue. From there, you can hop on Main Street's bike lane to go further north into downtown.
Parking and Trail Access
Currently, only on-street parking is available with a plan to incorporate off-street parking at one of the trailheads in the future. The best locations to find on-street parking are Main, Union and Wheeler Streets.
