Pennsy Trails of Hancock County
Mary Ann Wietbrock with The Pennsy Trails of Hancock County spoke to Kiwanis about the organization and their activities.
The Pennsy Trails of Hancock County Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit run completely by volunteers. Our mission is to encourage the development of a walk/bike trail in Hancock County along the National Road Heritage Trail, and to raise and distribute funds to Hancock County for that sole purpose. We aim to enhance education, funding, and safety on the Pennsy Trail in Hancock County.
Currently, the Pennsy Trail in Hancock County runs only from 600 West to 800 Wes and from 400 East to 150 West through Greenfield. The seven miles of trails in Greenfield are a part of the City of Greenfield’s Park and Recreation Department and were developed by the City of Greenfield. The remainder of the Trail is being developed by the County and the Pennsy Trails organization.
The expected impact of the trail extension is to help link all of Central Indiana with an almost 170 mile trail from state line to state line. It is hoped that expansion of the trail will improve the health of the communities where the trail is, expand economic activities, and help with wildlife habitat restoration.
If you are interested in more information or wish to contribute to the project you can go to the website at www.PennsyTrails.org or call 317.620.1006.
Wietbrock is a resident of New Palestine, Master Naturalist, Master Gardener, President of Pennsy Trails Group, Community Wildlife Habitat organizer, and Jacob Schramm Nature Preserve Land Steward. She can be reached at MAWietbrock@yahoo.com.
