LETTER TO THE EDITOR: We should take a look at trails law

The new Indiana Trails Liability Law only protects landowners from liability when people access the trail from their property, not when people access their property from the trail.

And, in most areas, that’s what the big problem is: People getting off the trail.

The law only addresses accessing the trail, not exiting. I encourage you to read the law (HEA 1115. No trespassing signs and fences already cover it all; but you better get your fence now, because trails operators are required to erect the fence and they are wanting to get out of that in the next Indiana General Assembly.
