Pennsy Trail – Greenfield

150 W to 400 E (5.3 miles) through Greenfield

The Pennsy Trail is a 3-mile linear park that resulted from a "rails-to-trails" project along the old Pennsylvania Railroad. It is asphalt paved and intended for walking, jogging, biking and rollerblading. Historical markers are located along the trail at points of interest. The new Pennsy Trail extension opened July 2009. This extension is another 3 mile linear trail that resulted from an $800,000 Indiana State Trail Grant. This trail would not be possible without the generosity of Covance. The trail right of way was donated so that the route could cross through the north end of their property. Eli Lilly also donated land for this trail extension.

Cumberland Pennsy Trail Solar System Model

My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas - Mercury Venus Earth Mars Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune Pluto are the nine planets in the solar system, well before Pluto was determined not to be a planet. Everyone has to learn the order of the planets in our Solar System in school, but can you visualize how big the solar system is?

The Cumberland Pennsy Trail Solar System Model stretches three miles from German Church Road in Marion County to Mt. Comfort Rd (CR 700 W) in Hancock County. The Sun and planets are placed at a 1:1 Billion scale along the trail, with the Sun at German Church Rd. There will be pavement markings for each location and an interpretive sign on each of the planets. Content has been reviewed by the Center for Planetary & Earth Studies at the National Air & Space Museum of the Smithsonian Institution.

This project is the vision of Parker King and Mark Reynold as a way to help students and adults understand the vast size of our Solar System. Content for the signs was also designed by Dr. Barbara Reger, Warren Township Schools, to meet ISTEP requirements. This provides an opportunity for educators to use the Solar System Model as part of their lessons plans. Each sign has general facts on each planet like its diameter or rotation period, as well as interesting "Fast Facts" and a "Did you know" section.

Do you know which planet is hotter than a desert or which planet has the most natural satelites? Check out the Solar System Model to find out the answers.
