Healthy Communities of Henry County; Wilbur Wright Trail

The Wilbur Wright Trail

The Wilbur Wright Trail (WWT) will involve 5 phases of trail construction, generally along an abandoned railroad corridor between New Castle and Losantville (in Randolph county). The WWT will originate near at the Henry County YMCA and pass through Hillsboro, Messick, and Mooreland before connecting with the Cardinal Greenway in Losantville.

The WWT will travel across relatively flat farmland. Potential equestrian opportunities are west and east of Mooreland. Transportation Enhancement (TE-21) funds have been awarded for the design, engineering, construction and land acquisition for Phase 1. Indiana Heritage Trust funds have been obtained to purchase railroad corridor land.

The map below shows the approximate proposed route of phase 1.
