The Indianapolis portion of the Pennsy Trail extends 1.2 miles between Arlington Avenue and Shortridge Road in eastern suburban Indianapolis. The dead-straight, paved trail occupies a portion of the old right-of-way of the Pennsylvania Railroad ("Pennsy" for short). The Indiana portion of the corridor extended from Richmond, Indiana, through Indianapolis to the eastern border of Illinois. Along these tracks the body of President Abraham Lincoln was carried back to Illinois, April 30, 1865.
Eventually the Pennsy Trail will lead east to the town of Cumberland. Other extensions include a possible run to the Pleasant Run Greenway, Ellenberger Park, Grassy Creek Greenway, Buck Creek Greenway, Washington Square Mall and downtown Indianapolis.
You'll find another segment of the Pennsy Trail in Greenfield
Parking is available at Irvington Plaza, midway along the trail (6243 Washington Street; park near the Dairy Queen just south of the Marsh grocery store).
