Surprise Donation Gives New Life To Whitewater Canal Trail

Good News Notes:

A very generous and unexpected donation will help make the Whitewater Canal Trail whole.

Whitewater Canal Trail President Shirley Lamb tells Eagle Country 99.3 that an anonymous donor has gifted nearly $700,000, which will enable the building of new trails that will connect existing trail sections into a continuous 11-mile trail.

“This gift, together with our other funds, will enable us to build new trail that will connect our existing trail sections into a continuous eleven-mile trail,’ said Lamb. ‘The timing and the amount of this gift were a total surprise and we can’t wait to put it to work building trail.’

The trail will run from the Yellow Bank Trailhead, through Metamora, all the way to the Laurel Feeder Dam – offering access to historic canal structures and natural scenery unique to Indiana.

If everything goes well, the new trail should be completed this year, according to Lamb.”
