The Luther Warren Peace Path is shady 1.2-mile journey along a level paved surface, delightfully cool in summer. The trail includes two old railroad bridges, one covered and built as a local Boy Scout project. There is a link to the path from Clinton Memorial Regional Hospital.
Parking and Trail Access
Access the trail at Nelson Avenue (near 397 S. Nelson; parking lot), at Mulberry Street (near 171 S. Mulberry; street parking) and from the south end of the hospital parking lot (enter from 616 W. Main). You can also access the trail by foot from the historic Sugar Grove Cemetery.
