Description

This is the Memorial Loop Trail at Whitewater Memorial State Park. This park is Indiana's 16th state park and is dedicated to the men and women who served in World War II. The trail is easily accessed from many locations and makes a complete loop while it meanders through the park. For our run, we accessed it from the parking area near Shelter 2. Other good places to access this trail with plenty of parking is at the boat launch or picnic shelter 3.

This trail will take you up hills and into valleys/ravines as you explore part of the eastern shoreline of Whitewater Lake. Look for waterfowl as well as frogs and turtles who make the lake their home. This trail will take you past the naturalist cabin where you can enjoy many interpretive programs from Memorial Day through Labor Day. It will also cross paths with the horse trail a number of times. Be on the lookout for deer, raccoon, and other wildlife during your trek. In the spring many wildflowers blanket the area which makes for a beautiful and enjoyable run.

Flora & Fauna

Typical eastern Indiana flora and fauna can be found here. Look for many wildflowers in the spring.
