On March 4, 2021, Kendallville was awarded a $428,784 grant from Indiana's Next Level Trails program. This is great news - not only for Kendallville, but for Noble County and the Fishing Line Trail!

Noble Trails partnered with the city on this grant. As the city expands the Fairview Plaza Trail east to Wal-Mart, Noble Trails will be extending the trail from Friendly Village along U.S. 6 to meet up with Kendallville’s Fairview Plaza Trail.

This will total 11 miles of trail from Rome City to Kendallville! We'll have more details on this project in the near future.

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.
