The Cardinal Greenways is a private, not-for-profit organization that encompasses the Cardinal Greenway, White River Greenway, Historic Wysor Street Depot and Cardinal Equestrian Trail. The Cardinal Greenway is the longest rail-trail in Indiana and spans 62 miles from Marion through Muncie to Richmond in East Central Indiana. Locally the Wayne County Cardinal GReenway cares for and maintains the 22.5 miles of the trail here in Wayne County. We receive no public funds to help us with trail maintenance and Depot operations. We therefore depend on trail users and interested community members to support our many trail enhancements with gifts of time, talent, and financial resources. Each year, approximately 250,000 people use the Greenways to walk, run, ride, rollerblade, horseback ride, explore their environment, bond with nature, search for animals and their habitats, take photos, or identify trees and birds. But trail users are not the only ones who benefit from trails. Trails benefit individuals, families, neighbors and neighborhoods and entire communities. In the case of the longest rail-trail in the state, Cardinal Greenway, we benefit much of East Central Indiana.
