HWC Trails Increase Character & Connectivity in Indiana Communities
The weather is getting chilly, but there’s still time to get outside and hit the trails before winter (and the snow) comes.
HWC has worked with Indiana communities on a variety of trail projects, from downtown trails to resort trails to riverfront trails. Each trail type includes features that enhance community character and connectivity.
