Winona Interurban Trail Description

The scenic Winona Interurban Trail lies in the southeastern corner of Goshen near the Indiana–Michigan border. The paved pathway is part of the larger Maple City Greenway network that links neighborhoods, parks, schools and businesses throughout the city. In particular, the rail-trail's proximity to Waterford Elementary, Bethany High School and Goshen College makes it a useful route for students. On the northern end of the college campus, trail-goers can also connect to the Central City Trail, which heads north through downtown and provides access to the popular and scenic Pumpkinvine Nature Trail.

The trail offers an interesting mixture of new and old railroad culture. It was built on the right-of-way of an electric-powered interurban railroad constructed in the early 1900s and also parallels and crosses an active railroad. The Winona Railroad carried passengers to and from Winona Lake until 1938 and freight until the early 1950s.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking can be found on the Goshen College campus (College Avenue and State Route 15).

Surprisingly Secluded

This trail starts in Goshen College and heads south along what I assume is an old rail trail. It's surprisingly secluded, quiet and peaceful. We hit the trail from the south end of the Millrace Trail where it terminates in the Shoups-Parsons Woods Park by taking Westwood Road east to the campus where there's a small curvy access trail. You can see this on the map just south of westwood on main st. There's a nice extension to the east worth a detour. Go north to explore the campus. Then the best part is heading south where the trail is secluded. We headed west from the southern end of the trail and explored Violett Cemetery as we headed back north.
