Report a problem on the Cascades Park Trail

The Cascades Park Trail officially opened May 17, 2012.

The trail is asphalt, 8 feet wide, and parallels Old State Road 37 North from Lower Cascades Park north past the Lower Cascades ballfields to the traffic signal at North College Avenue. There are pedestrian crossing signals for both North College and North Old State Road 37. The trail crosses Griffy Creek via a pedestrian bridge, and ends at North Old State Road 37 at Stone Mill Road.

The Cascades Park Trail was constructed with State Trail Grant funds from the Indiana DNR Division of Outdoor Recreation. Plans for the Cascades Park Trail call for it to connect Acuff Road to Lower Cascades Park, and Miller-Showers Park to Lower Cascades Park. Funding for the additional phases of trail construction has not yet been identified.
