Trail of the Month

Busy urban trail

Schererville residents enjoy the cross-community connection.

 

In the early 2000s, five municipalities in Northwest Indiana and Northeast Illinois along an abandoned rail corridor came together to plan for a 15-mile rail-trail called the Pennsy Greenway. Over the years, the trail became the first bi-state facility in the area, with connections planned north to downtown Chicago via its Lakefront Trail.

The Town of Schererville accounts for the largest share of the trail with over 7.5 miles and opened the first phase in 2011, with funding secured soon after for the second and third phases, both of which opened in 2020. The Pennsy is included in the American Discovery Trail, the Great American Rail-Trail, and Indiana DNR’s Visionary Trail Network. It connects to a number of adjacent neighborhoods and uses a historic railroad tunnel.

In addition, the Pennsy Greenway was selected as the Greenways Foundation’s Outstanding Trail Project for 2021.
