Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Milwaukee Road Transportation Trailway will one day stretch 20 miles through southwestern Indiana from Bedford to Indian Springs. The region’s rural beauty will be showcased along the way with limestone rock cuts, shady tree canopies, wildflowers, and numerous creek crossings.

The rail-trail follows the route of the former Milwaukee Road Railroad and, as of October 2014, more than 5 miles of its crushed limestone path are now open from Bedford to Coxton Road in Lawrence County. Future phases will continue to push the trail west into Martin County.

Parking and Trail Access

The main trailhead can be found at U Street in Bedford on the eastern end of the trail.
