Patronicity Challenge 

Noble Trails has traveled a long way since we started working on our first trail section over a decade ago.  Yes, it has been over a decade since a group of local residents thought, We want what other communities have: a beautiful trail for recreation, for health, and for transportation.  

Since then, with the help of our trail supports, local businesses, and area organizations, we have raised enough money to complete a lot of the trail between Rome City and Kendallville.  And, with your help, we can make the last trek to finish it.

We are in a Matching Grant Challenge.  if we can raise $35,000 between now and early October, we get a 100% match from the Patronicity Grant!  But, this can only happen with your support. 


Visit to donate!  We go live on August 25, 2021.

Benefits of Trails


When you mention trails, most people think about recreation.  But, communities with trails receive a wider range of benefits than just a park-like way to relax.


  • Improved Health

  • Safe Transportation

  • Economic Boost

  • Better Quality of Life

The Fishing Line


This trail will become part of the Fishing Line Trail, which we hope to see in the future connect Noble County to Fort Wayne and to Lagrange County.  Currently, Noble Trails has acquired ownership to several sections of the former railroad corridor, and we have recently opened a 1.25 mile section with an improved walking surface.
