Upgraded Amo-Coatesville Bike/Ped Vandalia Trail Complete - Nov 2018

Throughout the summer of 2018, many more bicyclists and pedestrians enjoyed Hendricks County Parks' newly upgraded paved 4 miles of Vandalia Trail in the Amo-Coatesville area. This also included full trailhead/parking facilities in the center of both towns and public restrooms that were opened in September. Since they are not heated, the public restrooms were winterized and closed at the beginning of November, to be reopened in April.

At the trailheads, trail information panels were installed with maps, trail rules, and local historical information. In addition to improving the experience for trail users, this trail upgrade has improved the atmosphere across the center of the towns, providing an improved backdrop for town events and increased activity for town businesses. It will be exciting to see how the towns develop over time to take advantage of this new facility.

For scenes along the upgraded trail, visit the Vandalia Trail Facebook Page as well as some of the previous photos published on this web site. For the future, volunteer activities are planned to continue refining the trailside landscaping and Hendricks County Parks continues preparations for future trail expansion.
