Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Henry County segment of the National Road Heritage Trail runs for nearly 5 miles over two segments. One runs from N. West Street in Raysville east to CR 425 W in Ogden (2 miles); the other between CR 125 east to William Street in Lewisville (3 miles). The traverses a mostly rural landscape with access to the three towns.

The National Road Heritage Trail is part of a proposed border-to-border trail, stretching between Terra Haute and Richmond, Indiana, which will eventually span more than 150 miles. The trail occupies part of the former Pennsylvania Railroad corridor, which closely parallels the Historic National Road.

Another segment of the trail passes through Terra Haute. In Greencastle the People Pathways forms a segment of the National Road Heritage Trail. Through Indianapolis and Greenfield it's part of the Pennsy Trail. In Hendricks and Putnam counties, the route is called the Vandalia Trail.

These two trail segments are very much "works in progress." They are split by the little town of Dunreith, Indiana (FYI - The Flamingo Motel on IN-3 just north of US-40 is an EXCELLENT layover... Very reasonable rates and a great homestyle diner adjacent). more
