The Rivertown Trail is a 2.84 mile trail that was constructed in two phases between 2008 and 2011 and a third phase is currently being built. The trail extends almost the entire length of Newburgh from New Locks and Dam Park to the east, south of Indian Hill Overlook Park, through Old Lock and Dam Park and the downtown plaza and finally through the Water Street Overlook to the B. Gene Aurand Trailhead.
Phase 3 of the trail will start at the pedestrian bridge near the B. Gene Aurand Trailhead, cross over Yorkshire Drive follow Yorkshire Drive to Lamey Lane, continue north of the Driftwood Parke subdivision and then continue down State Road 662 along Mulzer Fields Park and stop at Pollack Avenue. Warrick County Trails is assisting the Town of Newburgh with half of the match needed for the INDOT/LPA grant and will be constructing a trailhead at New Locks and Dam Park and renovating the trailhead building at the B. Gene Aurand Trailhead.
Each year the Rivertown Trail 5K/8K Committee hosts a race with all proceeds supporting the continued maintenance of the trail. Please visit their Facebook page.
