Evansville's Wabash & Erie Canal Trail travels through dense hardwood forest in the Wesselman Woods Nature Preserve, a 200-acre National Natural Landmark. Some of the park's trees are hundreds of years old and the area is abundant with wildlife, including gray foxes, coyote, whitetail deer, woodpeckers and owls. Visit the nature center to learn more about the unique surroundings. Trail-goers should note that the path's surface is unfinished.
