Little Turtle Waterway Trail Description

The Little Turtle Waterway Trail covers 1 mile along the Wabash River and is part of a 5-acre park in downtown Logansport. The rail-trail part of the equation comes from what is called the Gateway, formerly a railroad signal bridge, which was moved from the west side of town. The Gateway has four granite medallions designed by a Miami, Ohio, artist and depicting the symbolism of the Miami, the people of Chief Little Turtle.

The Plaza area of this charming park and trail has seating ledges overlooking the river. It's also notable for its artwork: 32 granite pavers, designed by local artists, depict scenes from local history. In addition, other works or art rendered in natural elements.

The city has plans to extend the trail east to 18th Street along the Wabash River to finish the pedestrian connection from downtown to the IVY Tech campus.

Trail extension

This was the second time on this trail. The first time it did indeed end at 12th Street. This time (3/3/18), the trail kept wife and I went another 15 minutes or so before turning back (lunch at the nearby China Lane - yum!), so didn't get to the end. I'm assuming it has been extended to the 18th street mark at least. Next time we'll find out for sure...
