Description

Land was donated by local property owners for 100% of this 7+mile trail system. Volunteers created these unique trails. Funding for development, signage and basic facilities came mostly from the ONR's Wabash Heritage Corridor Fund. The Canal Assoc. donated much of the acquired land to the City of Delphi for grant match and then leased these trail lands back for 99 years. They are maintained by volunteers on 3rd Saturday workdays. Volunteers are recognized every year on National Trails Day with USDA/NRCS Earth Team hats/shirts.
