The National Road Heritage Trail Greenway System

The National Road Heritage Trail Greenway System is an initiative created by the City of Terre Haute in 1996 through a transportation enhancement grant from the Indiana Department of Transportation for planning, design and construction of The National Road Heritage Trail. 

The National Road Heritage Trail Greenway System celebrates the Historic National Road, the nation's first federally-funded national highway as a national scenic byway and an All-American Road, extending from Cumberland, Maryland to Vandalia, Illinois. 

The National Road Heritage Trail Greenway System also supports local, state and national tourism, safe routes to schools, and to promote alternative transportation in conjunction with environmental stewardship, locally and across the State of Indiana. 

The National Road Heritage Trail Greenway System currently encompasses the following corridors:

  • The National Road Heritage Trail
  • The Dobbs Park Trail
  • The Historic Farringtons Grove Trail
  • The Hulman Street Trail
  • The Indiana Mile and 101 Trees of Indiana
  • The Historic Ohio Boulevard corridor, and
  • The National Scenic Byway Trail.

 
Future additions to The National Road Heritage Trail Greenway System scheduled for construction include the following corridors:

  • The Brown Boulevard Trail  - a safe routes to school corridor extending from Terre Haute North High School to the Indiana State University Stadium, the National Road Heritage Trail and the Indiana Mile (Spring 2009).
  • The Historic Collett Park Pathway - a safe routes to school corridor extending from the Indiana State University campus through the Union Hospital Health Group campus, conecting with Oubache Elementary School and to Collett Park (Fall 2008).
