Welcome to Hendricks County’s Vandalia Trail Project
In 1852, the railroad created a vital route that improved the lives of Hendricks County residents.
Today, that route is becoming vital once again, and will once again improve the lives of local residents. As a carefully planned trail, the former Vandalia Railroad route will provide much-needed recreational and health benefits, spur economic development in communities along the line, and enhance the value of surrounding land.
The Hendricks County Parks & Recreation Department is coordinating development of the trail on behalf of partners that include the towns of Amo, Clayton, and Coatesville, Plainfield, Friends of the Vandalia Trail, the Hendricks County Trail Development Association and the Indiana Department of Transportation.
We’ve created this portion of our website to share the project’s status with the community. We invite you contact us by e-mail to share your thoughts on the project.
