(Tilden, Indiana – June 16, 2023) The B&O Trail Association held a ceremonial ribbon-cutting today for its newest trail section, which runs from County Road 500 East to County Road 250 East in Hendricks County. “This is an exciting milestone for the B&O Trail Association in Hendricks County, and this is just the first of three long-awaited expansions both in Hendricks and Marion County,” said Jeff Smallwood, BOTA president. “We thank the Indiana Department of Natural Resources for making this possible by awarding us a $4.58 million Next Level Trails grant in 2021 for two phases of this project. We are now one step closer to our long-term vision of a trail stretching from downtown Indianapolis to Montezuma, Indiana.”
We were proud to collaborate with the Brownsburg Running Club, the Brownsburg Parks Department and IU Health West to bring our second annual fall 2-miler and 4-miler walk/run event to the B&O Trail. The second annual "Blaze the B&O" event was held on Saturday, September 30, 2023 on a beautiful sunny fall morning.
