Rivergreenway Trail Corridor
Rivergreenway Trail Corridor is a paved walking and bicycling trail starting at the east end of East Wabash Street, in the heart of Bluffton, and then running southeast on the banks of the Wabash River on River Road to the White Bridge, a distance of 2 1/4 miles. The state has extended the trail eastward from the bridge, connecting it into Ouabache State Park, where it links into an extensive park trail. The total trail from Bluffton to and through much of the state park is close to 5 miles. Future plans are to continue the Rivergreenway Trail westward to Markle. Rivergreenway Trail features include a boating access site in the east end of the trail near the White Bridge, a replica historic covered bridge, and designated parking lots along the trail. No horses or motorized vehicles are allowed on the trail.
From 2002 to 2009, the City of Bluffton reforested 150 acres of floodplain with species of this area’s former Oak-Hickory and Maple-Beech forest habitats. This acreage is located on the north side of the Wabash River west of the White Bridge and represents another addition to the City of Bluffton’s ongoing efforts to restore the Wabash River floodplain to its native habitat waterway.
A system of looping trails allows people to walk among the emerging native bushes and trees and enjoy the tranquility of the young woods and the delight of hearing and seeing birds and animals who are calling the area home.
EDUCATIONAL FIELD TRIPS ARE WELCOMED.
