Community Trails

Muscatatuck Trail
Address:  South Gum Street • North Vernon, IN 47265
This paved walkway was completed in late 2016  and is a community favorite.  With a mile of paved trail in the heart of our downtown area, it's a great location to get that evening or afternoon run in. Trail starts at the West entrance parking area of the Muscatatuck Park where you will also find a filtered water bottle refilling station.  The trail goes north from there to the North Vernon mini-park or into downtown North Vernon. Parking for trail can be found at Muscatatuck Trail and at the Mini Park.  There is a bench located along path as well if needed.
Watering Station is available at this location for you (water fountain & water bottle refill) and a watering bowl for your pet.
