Anderson will expand river trail

wooded trailCurrently, Anderson’s White River Trail follows the river through the downtown area to the west side of the city. A new segment will extend east to the Rangeline Nature Preserve and is part of a larger effort to enhance the city’s quality of life and sense of place by engaging people with White River.
