The B-Line Trail passes directly through Switchyard Park, running its entire length and providing a direct link to downtown. Miles of new trail will be constructed to loop trails throughout the park and connect to adjacent neighborhoods.

The B-Line Trail extends a total of 3.1 miles from Adams Street to Country Club Drive. The B-Line connects to the Bloomington Rail Trail at Country Club Drive, offering a total of 5.1 miles of trail.

The trail is lighted with energy-efficient LED lights. The lights are on from dusk to dawn. The B-Line Trail is paved and is completely accessible. Motorized vehicles are not permitted on the B-Line Trail, with the exception of pedal-assist electric bikes and motorized wheelchairs.
