Friends of the Pumpkinvine Receive Trail Construction Grant from the Community Foundation of Elkhart County

The Community Foundation of Elkhart County recently awarded a $250,000 grant for trail construction in theMap of trails to be built in the gap "gap" between County Roads 20 and 35. Friends own 0.43 mile of the former Pumpkin Vine Railroad corridor in this section (solid green line on the map); however, they need 600 feet of additional land (dashed green line on the map) to reach County Road 35 where the existing trail (orange line)from Middlebury ends. Friends are negotiating with neighbors to purchase the needed land.

Friends have been working for several years to build trail between County Roads 33 and 20 (yellow line). They recently bought land for that purpose and construction is expected in 2018.
