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. Last year, Anderson repaired the trail around Shadyside Lake; next year, the city will improve the connection between Shadyside and the downtown area.

White River also is a popular paddling area for canoeists and kayakers. Read more: Anderson seeks to enhance sense of community by extending trail by Ken de la Bastide, The Herald Bulletin, June 14, 2018.
