The Panhandle Pathway is a 21-mile multi-use greenway from Winamac to France Park, just west of Logansport, and it has its Friends — literally. The Friends of the Panhandle Pathway believe their mission is to develop, manage and maintain this Northern Indiana trail and they back up that belief with effort and energy.

The Whitewater River flows south through Eastern Indiana, creating a valley that is home to two trail systems that are long on historical significance.

Whitewater Gorge Park offers steep limestone walls, a swift stream and deep forest with miles of trail and spectacular views. The gorge played a central role in the rich history of Richmond, and today its paved and unpaved greenways offer peaceful beauty to trail users.

Farther south, the Whitewater Canal Trail features the 19th-Century Whitewater Canal from Metamora to Brookville. The trail that follows the canal includes several locks and the only existing wooden aqueduct in the country, as well as the natural beauty of the broad, wooded valley and historical activities in Metamora.
