Then the other day I was looking up something about the B&O Trail west of Indianapolis on www.traillink.com, the website where the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy has a listing of all U.S. trails. I noticed that Indiana has 110 trails listed on the site, but most of them are fairly short, like five miles or less. A quick look through the list showed that the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail at 17 miles is actually one of the longer trails. Here's a list of all trails 10 miles or larger.
- Cardinal Greenway - 62 miles
- Nickle Plate Trail - 36.9 miles
- Rivergreenway, Fort Wayne - 30.1iles
- Monon - 24 miles
- Panhandle Pathway - 21 miles
- Erie-Lackawanna - 17.7 miles
- Pumpkinvine Nature Trail - 17 miles
- Columbus People Trail - 15.7 miles
- Vandalia Trail - 16 miles
- Milwaukee Road Transportation Trailway - 10.3 miles
- Prairie Duneland Trail - 10.3 miles
- Delphi Historic Trails - 10 mile
So it's possible people come to ride the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail for its length, as well as its natural features.
