White River Greenway (Muncie) Description

The White River Greenway in Muncie follows the course of its namesake river through the city between W. White River Boulevard at W. River Road and N. Gavin Street at Bunch Boulevard. The trail corridor runs through a narrow greenway between the river and urban neighborhoods, passing through several parks. The White River Greenway crosses the Cardinal Greenway in Muncie near McCulloch Boulevard.

Parking and Trail Access

You can access the trail from any of the parks it passes through: Westside Park (parking here), White River Park (2.6 miles of parkland along White River Blvd.; parking near Dill St.), Tuehy Park (North St.; cross White River Blvd. to access trail), McCulloch Boulevard east of Elm St. (also access the Cardinal Greenway here) and McCulloch Park (cross McCulloch Blvd to access trail).

White River Greenway (Muncie) Reviews

This trail is very scenic of the white river through the heart of downtown Muncie and the Minnetrista.

Just rode this trail last week. I parked at the Cardinal Greenway lot at the former C&O station at the east end of E. Wysor St. I started on the Cardinal Greenway east to E Jackson St, went across the bridge and then left onto the White River Greenway. The trail was in excellent condition. It is basically flat with a few small grades up to street level. Scenic with some wildlife, mostly birds. A nice stop is Minnetristra, the former Ball family estate. Beautiful buildings and gardens. On the return trip I went back on the Cardinal trail from McCulloch Park to the train station.


This trail is a great extension/connection to the Cardinal Greenway. The trail runs entirely next to the White River, and provides numerous chances to see wildlife along the river. Nearly every time we use the trail we see ducks, geese, turtles, and an occasional crane in the river. There are several streets that all connect to downtown Muncie which you can use to get to several of the outstanding downtown restaurants.

Warning: as you navigate the scenic trail, you will need to keep a constant look for the ever-present geese who are a constant presence along the trail and the "calling cards" that they litter the trail with!

...or maybe one of the only good things. I lived in Muncie for a year during an internship. It's not much. However, the White River Greenway and the Cardinal Greenway are jewels that made it bearable. I lived just a couple of blocks from the restored train station and used the trail to commute to work. The WRG ended at the time at a sweet little 50s diner that had a jukebox and Elvis specialities on the menu. The Cardinal Greenway goes through the Ball Estate (think jars) with its historic homes and lovely gardens and then runs along the river. Altogether pleasant and fairly well maintained. They did not have visible police presence when I was riding it so it got a little iffy at dusk. Other than that, I rode it by myself and loved it. Well maintained!

According to the description the Trail Head is at Cumberland Road and Allisonville Road. Cumberland turns into Greenfield and we drove extensively around the Greenfield and Cumberland intersection and did not see the trail anywhere. We are new to the area so maybe there is another Cumberland Road?
