Wabash River Trail Description

Following the Wabash River for 7 miles, the Wabash River Trail combines a community pathway, river recreation, canal history, and land conservation. The trail offers the opportunity to experience the region's small towns, active communities, pastoral landscapes, farm country, and historic features. Running between Wabash and Lagro, this paved trail is perfect for all manner of recreational activities. Whether you are looking to leisurely enjoy the scenic river views or engaging in exercise, the Wabash River Trail is for you. Open for running, walking, and biking, it's also prime spot for observing bald eagles and other river wildlife. The trail provides areas for fishing, canoe and kayak access to the river, and scenic overlooks.

In Wabash, the trail connects with the Paradise Spring Riverwalk Trail and the Wabash Riverwalk Trail, which continues following the river south. The riverwalk stretches 0.75 miles from S Huntington Street to just past the intersection of Smith Street and S Carroll Street. On Smith Street past the intersection, there is a trailhead with 20 parking spaces and 2 accessible spaces.

Wabash River Trail Reviews

Awesome Trail!

Rode from Lagro to Wabash. Well maintained, beautiful scenery, wildlife galore! And just something about riding next to the river makes it a wonderful ride!

beautiful river trail

Well maintained asphalt trail with woods and river scenery. Nice Bistro overlooking river in Lagro.

Beautiful Trail with Lovely Bridges

We began at the Hill St. Trailhead and rode into Lagro, then back to the west end of Wabash. There were rest rooms at three areas of Wabash (not Hill St.) and in Lagro. It was a good mixture of terrains and scenery, with the Wabash town being prettiest. The next time we will not go up the hill and into Lagro: we had to push our bikes up the hill, and we didn't like the .6 mile gap on shared road into Lagro.

Awesome trail very well maintained. Bonus is town of Wabash has a lot to do also
