National Road Heritage Trail

 

 

National Road Heritage Trail

 

In 1806, Congress approved the construction of the first national highway. Construction on the National Road, which began in Cumberland, Maryland, and ended in Valdalia, Illinois, began in 1811. Today we know it as U.S. Highway 40.  Our National Road Heritage Trail extends for approximatly 6.5 miles from the Twigg Rest Area, which is on U.S.40, to the Indiana State Univeristy campus in downtown Terre Haute.  This trail is our pride and joy and is ideal for running, walking, biking or rollerblading. It is well maintained and is a great escape for your activity in a serene setting!
