A lot of people are getting stir crazy during social isolation, and although we have to stay away from others in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, you can still go outside. With the weather getting warmer, now is the perfect time to go walking, running, and biking. There are plenty of trails in Northwest Indiana that you can take to show you the beautiful sights our region has to offer. The Erie Lackawanna Trail begins in Hammond and runs through the towns of Highland, Griffith, Schererville, and Merrillville before coming to an end in Crown Point. This seventeen-mile long trail is the longest continuous trail in Northwest Indiana. Although we can’t see our friends, or go to public events, we can still go outside and appreciate the fun we can find in nature. So get out there and see the world around you!
