Jasper River Walk


Jasper River Walk

The Jasper River Walk stretches 2.1 miles from the Ruxer Golf Course on South Clay Street, to 15th Street. It follows the Patoka River through scenic wooded areas and along farm fields. Walkers, joggers and bicyclists can enjoy the Riverwalk without the worry of traffic. It also passes through the Dave Buehler Plaza and the Lions Club Park that is a handicap accessible playground.

The south end of the Jasper River Walk begins on South Clay Street at Ruxer Golf Course. Parking is available for those wanting to walk, jog or bike on the trail, which is also wheel chair accessible. A long footbridge that extends across the river also connects to the paved trail. The river runs along one side of the trail while open fields line the other side. The trail goes under Newton Street and proceeds along the rear parking lot of the movie theater. There is access to the trail from both the rear and front parking areas.
