The White River Wapahani Trail, winding along the banks of the White River, is truly a trail with history in it’s making. The name “Wapahani” comes from the Delaware Indiana’s tribe’s word for White River. The White River makes a winding path through the city, 27 miles from the northeast corner to the southwest. For more information about this important river, go to: www.indcanal.org. Making home in this river are many species of small fish, small animals and invertebrates, and deer, coyote’s, or red fox can possibly be spotted. A variety of ducks and birds, like the blue heron inhabit the White River in Indianapolis too.
