Wabash Heritage Trail

About Wabash Heritage Trail

This 13-mile trail begins at the Tippecanoe Battlefield Park located in Battle Ground and makes its way along Burnett's Creek to cross the Wabash River at Davis Ferry Park. The trail follows the Wabash River to Riehle Plaza in downtown Lafayette, crossing the Wabash River again and heading southward toward Fort Ouiatenon. The Heritage Trail offers opportunities for bird watching, wildlife observation, exercise and exploration. The trail is mild to moderate as it winds past marshy areas, buckeye, cottonwood and sycamore trees, wildflowers and Heron Island Wildlife Preserve.
