“A run that includes an Indiana floodplain prairie, the confluence of two rivers, and woodland bluffs overlooking it all.”— Timothy Collins
In the middle of summer, the prairie grass and other vegetation can get quite tall: 7 to 10 feet. On a typical Indiana summer day, running in these areas can be very hot with high humidity. Remember to hydrate.
Continuing on, the trail will combine with a paved cycle/walking path for about 0.25 miles. Moving along the prairie, the trail will turn to loose gravel and, eventually, a grass and dirt path. Visitors will observe various wetland restoration projects, indigenous tree plantings, and a stabilization project of the bank along the Wabash River.
Following along the Wabash River, the trail turns where the Tippecanoe River flows into the Wabash. Run through the woods with the Tippecanoe River as your escort. The trail will then cross a bottom land prairie and will lead runners to a 1.0 mile woodland bluff trail that offers great views of the prairie you just came from. Follow the gravel road and catch Trail #2 again where you originally left it. Reverse your path here and exit where you entered.
