About Pennsy Trail
The straight, paved Pennsy Trail—not to be confused with the Pennsy Greenway located farther north in the Chicago suburbs—occupies a portion of the old right-of-way of the Pennsylvania Railroad (“Pennsy” for short) and parallels the historic Old National Road. The Indiana portion of the corridor extended from Richmond, Indiana, through Indianapolis to the eastern border of Illinois. Along these tracks, the body of President Abraham Lincoln was carried back to Illinois on April 30, 1865. The trail is currently open in three disjointed segments. On the eastern side of Indianapolis, a 1.2-mile stretch links the Irvington neighborhood with a local elementary school and a large Indiana Department of Transportation complex. A restored railroad trestle takes trail users over busy Shadeland Avenue.
