(Franklin County, Ind.) - The Whitewater Canal Trail was recognized as the 2022 Project of the Year at the regional trails summit on November 10 at Northern Kentucky University.

The trail runs from the Laurel Feeder Dam to Brookville. Its purpose is to foster activities along the Whitewater Canal corridor that focus on historic preservation and interpretation, outdoor recreation and natural resource conservation while promoting sustainable development and improved quality of life.

“The Whitewater Canal Trail is a real gem,” said trail representative Tony Montgomery. “This trail is being built and maintained by an all-volunteer organization and they’ve been working on it for more than 20 years. The scenery is beautiful, the history is unique and it’s a pleasure to ride or walk on this trail.”

Whitewater Canal Trail president Shirley Lamb also weighed in on the award.

“We’ve been working really hard to make sure that trail users enjoy their time on the trail. Walkers and history buffs, bicyclists and birdwatchers all use the trail and they really appreciate what we do.”
