Our Centenial Project is Complete! Our trailhead clock tower project has been in the making for 5 years as a celebration of Rotary's 100th birthday. We're thrilled to see this collaborative project come to fruition. What a beauty it is!

The Erie Lackawanna (EL) Trail represents the longest contiguous trail in Northwest Indiana, running 17-miles from Crown Point north to Hammond. This trail passes through wetlands and open space on an unusually wide, paved corridor. The EL is a popular thoroughfare that lends green space to an urban landscape on this rail-trail with connections to five neighboring communities. At the southern end in Crown Point, the EL starts at Summit Street, just west of Main Street, or State Road 55. The trailhead is brand new as of the summer of 2014 and features a 20-car parking lot, bathrooms, a drinking fountain and a seating plaza, complete with a large shelter replicating an old train depot.
