The path through West Lafayette is easy to follow. It's clearly marked, five feet wide, and paved. The asphalt does heat up in the summer. On a warm day, you can opt to walk on the grassy sides of the path instead of the center. This will protect your dog's paws, and give you an even better chance to admire the local wildflowers. This path also leads through the oldest parts of town. If you're a history buff (or just looking for a cool selfie background), the buildings along this third of a mile pathway can't be beat. There are several benches along the trail. Kick back and relax if you'd like to spend more time here!
Unlike some other sections of Wabash Heritage Trail, bikes are allowed on this section. That's why it's so important that you follow the guidelines and keep your dog on leash. Cyclists can pick up speed along a flat stretch. Keeping your dog close ensures that unnecessary accidents can be avoided.
Prepare for a woofderful time on Wabash Heritage Trail, Section 2 of 3.
