Description Suggest an Edit

The Iron Horse Heritage Trail in Portage, Indiana, runs for 5 miles between Max Mochal Road (SR 149) at the east end and County Line Road near US 20 at the west end. The trail passes through a greenway corridor among suburban back yards, though with a decidedly rural feel. Much of the route is wooded, and the trail provides access to Imagination Glen Park and Woodland Park.

Just west of the eastern end point at SR 149, you can take a spur trail south to link with the Prairie Duneland Trail.

Parking and Trail Access

Park at Imagination Glen Park (2275 McCool Road). There is off-road parking (no designated lot) by Woodland Park between Willowcreek Road and Portage Avenue and parking at the BMX track off SR 149.
