The name Pufferbelly comes from the historical nickname for a steam locomotive. As of 2018, the rail-trail stretches 4.9 miles. The north end of the trail begins in the Pentolina Grove neighborhood and, from there, the trail heads south towards Fort Wayne. A highlight of the route is the trail's passage through Salomon Farm Park, where the Pufferbelly connects to a loop trail.
In the future, the trail will span 13 miles along a former New York Central railroad corridor. When finished, the rail-trail will stretch from downtown Fort Wayne to the northern Allen County border. A direct connection to the Rivergreenway will allow for extensive recreational and commuting access throughout Fort Wayne on foot or bike.
Parking for the Pufferbelly Trail can be found at Salomon Farm Park on W. Dupont Road.
