While in Winamac we will take a trail bridge over the Tippecanoe River to check out the Winamac Town Park before heading back to the south trailhead in Kenneth.

Review from "This trail is smooth as glass and offers a great way to cruise through the surrounding farmland. The Tippecanoe River bridge is a highlight--I love how they used the entire width of the double track railroad bridge to create a peaceful oasis on the trail at that point. I highly recommend this trail, it's a true gem!"
