Day 8

Monday August 21

Logansport to Rochester – 31.3 miles

High of 87° and a Chance of Thunderstorms this Afternoon

The Road North: As we begin our journey north and away from the banks of the Wabash River, we visit downtown Logansport and the Eel River. We will hike along the River Bluff Trail for a mile and then cut north to Twelve Mile. We will enjoy lunch at Bethlehem United Methodist Church and then walk to Fulton, where we will board bikes to Rochester. We hope to view the solar eclipse this afternoon.
