Fort Wayne in Allen County, Indiana — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
The Bicentennial Heritage Trail
ARCH, Inc., (at 437 E. Berry Street, 426-5117) acts for the community as the Sponsor of the Trail.
Trail maps can be obtained through ARCH, the Convention & Visitors Bureau, and downtown area hotels. An illustrated guidebook for the Trail and a number of additional historic sites in the area can be purchased from ARCH and area bookstores and gift shops.
Without a map, walkers may follow the distinctive red-white-and-blue Trail markers located on utility poles along the route. Walk facing the markers, and be alert at intersections for Trail markers indicating turns.
Users of the Trail are cautioned to be aware of traffic and of their environment. Follow the Trail only during daylight hours. If you attempt to drive the Trail, please be aware that it was designed for walking, and it sometimes goes the wrong way on one-way
