Fishing Line Trail Description

The Fishing Line Trail will someday span 12 miles between the cities of Kendallville and Rome City, Indiana. Noble Trails, the group behind this project, is in the process of acquiring the parcels needed along the former Grand Rapids and Indiana railroad corridor. For now, walkers and cyclists can enjoy 1.25 miles of paved trail cutting through the dense tree canopy. The trail begins in Rome City, at the Noble City Convention and Visitors Bureau along 850 N. And travels southeast before ending at E 800 N.

If you find yourself in the area, be sure to pay a visit to the Gene Stratton-Porter Historical Site. Gene Stratton-Porter was one of Indiana’s most beloved novelists and conservationists, and her home and final resting place, “Cabin at Wildflower Woods” sits 150 acres right on the shore of Sylvan Lake near Rome City. 

Parking and Trail Access

To access the open trail segment, take County Road 900 N east from State Road 9.  Follow the signs to Gene Stratton-Porter State Historic Site ((1205 Pleasant Point, Rome City).  The Gene Stratton-Porter parking lot is located on the north side of the roadway. Use the grassy trail on the south side of CR 850 N to reach the Fishing Line Trail.

Fishing Line—Awesome Trail!!

We rode the fishing line from GeneStratton Porter into Rome City, back on the trail around Sawyers Barn, all the way to Kendallville, Riley Road and back! It’s a great ride a little over 20 miles!! ML
