Living a healthy and active lifestyle is a core value for the Logansport Memorial Hospital Foundation (LMHF) & this was the driving factor behind the LMHF’s desire to bring a trail to Logansport.
The 2.4-mile River Bluff Trail opened in 2004 features a handicap-accessible paved trail, 3 bridges, a picnic area, rest stops, a canoe/kayak launch and entrances/parking at both ends.
Seeking opportunities to expand the local trail system, In 2007, LMHF opened the Hervey Preserve- 35 acres of heavily wooded land adjacent to the River Bluff Trail, featuring a 1.1 connecting crushed-stone trail, a 90-foot labyrinth, nature paths and a picnic pavilion.
LMHF collaborated with the Logansport Parks Department (LPD) and installed the Cole Family Bridge to connect the River Bluff Trail with the Eel River Run Trail and Riverside Park. In 2007, the Huston family, donated 80 acres of land to LMHF for a park. After years of planning and fundraising, the land was deeded to the LPD. Huston Park was opened in 2014. The final connector project occurred in 2016 when a .33 paved trail through Hervey Preserve connected Huston Park with the River Bluff Trail just west of the Cole Bridge, which links Riverside Park and the Eel River Run Trail.
