Cardinal Line January 2018

Welcome 2018   

Enjoy CG All Year Long

It’s 2018 and Cardinal Greenways is off to a great start! Despite the winter weather, we’re busy working on the trail. Maintenance continues year round to guarantee our trail is in great shape for our thousands of trail users. No matter what the season, Cardinal Greenway is waiting for you, and hopefully you’ll make our beautiful rail trail a part of your life in 2018.


Happy Anniversary to CG!

Silver Jubilee

This year is Cardinal Greenways’ 25th Anniversary! In 1993 Cardinal Greenways purchased 60 miles of the former railroad corridor from the CSX Transportation Corporation to develop a rail trail through East Central Indiana. With the help of generous donors and numerous hardworking people, the trail became a reality and is considered one of the best rail trails in the country. We hope you’ll join the fun and tell us what you love most about Cardinal Greenway, because we’re ready to celebrate our trail, complete with a cool CG 25th anniversary bike jersey. We’ll have more details coming soon.


Historic Wysor St. Depot

An Amazing Structure to Behold!

Our CG headquarters, the Historic Wysor St. Depot, is a great place to obtain information about the trail or to take a break, but it’s also an amazing building to explore. Built in 1901 and designated as one of the most beautiful structures of its kind, the late Victorian, Queen Anne depot is an architectural vision to behold. You are welcome to visit our Historic Wysor St. Depot Monday through Friday from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm. We’ll proudly give you a tour!

Fun Fact

 The Cardinal

The Cardinal was the name of the last passenger train to regularly travel our rail trail, deriving its name from the state bird of all five of the states which it crossed on the Chicago/Cincinnati/Washington line. We believe our name Cardinal Greenway is a small but meaningful tribute to the golden age of American railroads.
