Indianapolis, IN

White River Trail

This paved trail makes a winding path through the city from the northeast corner of the county to the southwest. The northern point being 38th St., it then passes through White River State Park, and ends south at Raymond Street. The best access point is at Riverside Regional Park. It is also called the Wapahani Trail, from the Delaware Indiana’s tribe’s word for White River.

The trail passes by several Indianapolis cultural and educational attractions including the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Lake Sullivan Sports Center,  IUPUI, the Downtown Canal Walk, White River State Park, and the Indianapolis Zoo. Currently, it links with the Central Canal Towpath just to the north of Riverside Park and the southern segment of the Fall Creek Trail. In the future, it will connect to the Eagle Creek Trail and the Pleasant Run Trail.

This section starts at Riverside Regional Park and heads south along the river, across 10th street and back onto the trail. You’ll then cross the White River to pass the Indianapolis Zoo and head back North towards 10th street, where you’ll cross over to head back up to the park!
