Great paved trail in Plainfield. One of my favorites things about my home city, are the walking trails.

We took the section of the Vandalia trail from Amo to somewhere between Coatesville and Filmore. It was a fairly cold day in February but it felt great to get out! The trailhead is real nice in Amo, and there is even a Pizza restaurant nearby. It is about 3 miles- easy, flat ones, through a pretty section of woods- to Coatesville. Looked like there were a couple of nice cafes there. We kept hiking a couple of more miles, about halfway to Fillmore, then headed back the way we came. It is impossible to get lost, and it is well Marked, looking forward to starting next time in Greencastle, and walking as far as the point we turned around!
