Come join us for a guided walking tour of the historic Whitewater Canal in Metamora, Indiana.  You will learn about the 1800's canal system while strolling along the Whitewater Canal Trail.  We will meet  at the parking area across from the aqueduct in Metamora at 10:30 AM (dress for the weather.)  The tour will take you about 1/4 mile down the trail and back. Then a short tour of the town of Metamora will follow, including a tour of the grist mill.  The tour will conclude at 12:30 PM.  There will be places to eat lunch in Metamora.  This is a great way to enjoy "Opening Day on the Trail."
