White River Greenway Description

The White River Greenway in Anderson, IN is approximately 4.89 miles paved (with a small section of boardwalk) along the White River and continues approximately 1.7 miles unpaved. It links multiple parks, including the Rangeline Nature Preserve which consists of 3 mountain biking loops: a beginner, intermediate, and expert level. In addition to Rangeline, the White River Greenway connects into the Killbuck Wetlands, Shadyside Park trail system, Madison Park / Derby Downs, Riverbend Park and conservation area, Athletic Park, and Edgewater Park. The trail is also just a few minutes from Anderson University, Downtown Anderson, and Mounds State Park. It provides a unique opportunity linking nature to urban recreation.

Parking and Trail Access

There are eight (8) trail heads / parking locations along the trail; one (1) at each of the following locations: Riverbend Park, Madison Park / Derby Downs, Edgewater Park, Killbuck Wetlands, and the Rangeline Nature Preserve. Additionally, there is a trail head located on W 8th Street, approximately 400 feet east of Raible Avenue; located just off Main Street across the street from Dossett's Garage; and on E 9th Street approximately 160 feet west of Ruddle Avenue.

White River Greenway Reviews

This trail has great potential - but...

We rode our bikes through portions of White River Greenway. While the trail itself has beautiful views of nature and the city, it also had some problems.

Some things we enjoyed were:
- Views of the White River
- Wooden decks and bridges overlooking the river
- Wooded areas that felt far from the city

Some things we did not enjoy were:
- Flooded, impassable trails
- Geese and a minefield of poop
- Homeless folks/camps in the shrubs along the river and under the bridge (including seeing a naked homeless person and accidentally driving right through their camp - we had no way of knowing this in advance due to the curve of the trail and the bridge)

The trail has great potential and is beautiful in so many ways, however the safety and privacy of both the trail users and the homeless, particularly under the bridges, need to be addressed.


very nice
