The scenic Winona Interurban Trail lies in the southeastern corner of Goshen near the Indiana/Michigan border. The paved pathway is part of the larger Maple City Greenway network that links neighborhoods, parks, schools and businesses throughout the city. In particular, the rail-trail's proximity to Waterford Elementary, Bethany High School and Goshen College make it a useful route for students.
The trail offers an interesting mixture of new and old railroad culture. It was built on the right-of-way of an electric-powered interurban railroad constructed in the early 1900s and also parallels and crosses an active railroad. The Winona Railroad carried passengers to and from Winona Lake until 1938 and freight until the early 1950s.
