Wabash River Water Trail (IN)


Location: 13 Indiana counties; Illinois border
Length: 475 miles long
Waterways: Wabash River

The Wabash has always been Indiana's most famous river. Occupying the heartland of the state, the river drains two-thirds of the 92 counties as it flows over 475 miles to its confluence with the Ohio below Mount Vernon. The river rises in Ohio near Fort Recovery and flows for only thirty miles before it becomes entirely an Indiana River.

It is a river of many faces and moods. At times it occupies a huge valley which was carved by a glacial runoff but it also flows through a partially filled valley formed before the glacial advances. In its upper stretches the Wabash moves across the fertile, flat land in a narrow, shallow trench.
