Erie Lackawanna Trail

At 17-miles in length, the Erie-Lackawanna Trail represents the longest contiguous off-road trail facility in Northwest Indiana. Running from downtown Hammond, into the heart of Crown Point, the Erie-Lackawanna Trail traverses through six Lake County communities and connects into four downtown districts. Along the way, a myriad of shopping and dining experiences await, from major retail outlets to small local businesses. Further enhancing the user experience are no less than six brew-pubs within walking distance of the trail. In addition, a number of parks and nature based facilities are present.
