Limestone Greenway

Well marked trail that is lined with trees, limestone, and wildflowers. Perfect for running, walking, and biking. It passes a sewage treatment plant, so you might smell poop for a short time. One of my favorite places for a walk.

Columbus People Trail

I started by the baseball field and it looked like a nice path but the trail ends and you just run thru the residential area.

Rural Indiana at it's best.

July, 2021 by frd1967

We started at the Williams Dam and rode to the end at Bedford, then back. Very shaded and nicely packed trail. Nice scenery and many bridges make it an interesting ride. The trail was in good shape the whole way. It was a great ride.

Franklin Greenway Trail

Bike Friendly Area

July, 2021 by davidtemme5506

We parked at Community Park and went north along Hurricane Creek. It was shaded and very lovely. We went on several connected bike paths not shown such as E. King Street, Eastview Drive and Hurricane road. Wish we had time to go along Young's Creek!

Clear Creek Trail (IN)

clear creek trail

May, 2021 by dracersmith

Walked part of the trail today and was impressed! Clean, paved & well marked. I was surprised to see mile markers. Both families and individuals were walking, running and bike riding enjoying the day.

White River Greenway Trail (Martinsville)

Perfect trail for walking, running or biking-2 miles out, 2 miles back. Beautiful scenery along the river with picnic tables along the way. Paved and flat.

B-Line Trail

Info you can use...

September, 2020 by timothyrw

We started on the North end of the trail. We parked at the Rev Ernest D. Butler Park. Use the parking lot off of Fairview St on the east side of the park; this is by the playground/swings. There are about 7-8 parking spaces. From there it is a very short ride north to enter the trail (like, coast down the hill and there it is).

From there we rode the three miles of the B-Line. We went on a Sunday and the trail was relatively busy. Along the way we rode through part of downtown but traffic was very light. Vehicles were respectful of the crossings and would stop if they were paying attention.

Along the B-Line we saw a bike repair shop, bike/skate board park, splash pad, playground, dog park, and more. Bloomington has really developed this trail and the amenities on it. Due to COVID the water fountains were covered.

The trail is paved and mostly flat. There was one large incline overpass but nothing too hard. The B-Line section ends at W Country Club Dr where there is another area to park if you wanted to start on the South end and travel north. There are approximately 17 or so parking spaces there with Handicapped parking.

We continued south onto the gravel Bloomington Rail Trail. We actually rode straight south from the B-line and realized we were on a motor path that runs parallel to the Bloomington Rail Trail; to get on the Rail Trail there is a slight jog to the west (by the parking lot). We were not the only ones who did this; but the actual trail is better in that it has tree coverage and it was a really sunny day. We eventually cut over to the proper trail when the motor path ended as we continued south.

We stopped at a large creek bridge that is just south of the roundabout for the Clear Creek Trail. We rested, took some pictures, and headed back North. We had a 9-year old and 12-year old with us and they were worn out at the end of what turned out to be a 10-mile round trip bike ride. It was a great time, though!

Hidden Gem

September, 2020 by jawalters4

My husband and I did this trail in Labor Day. The path is paved with some sun and some shade. No hills. Fabulous for those looking for an easy stroll or bike ride. The River was clean. We saw a huge snapper turtle over a short cliff. There were a few gravel/sand bars where people were fishing or skipping rocks.

Columbus People Trail

Very frustrating and disappointing day

August, 2020 by julie.dwenger

This trail has a lot of potential so for the life of me I can't understand why the city of Columbus doesn't take advantage of it more by making tweaks that seem so simple to me. There are probably some restaurants along the way but I couldn't look for them I was so busy trying to figure out where the h*** I was supposed to go without getting hit by a car. Parts of this trail are very nice but it's disconnected at numerous points along the way and there is no signage whatsoever for guidance. Absolutely NO SIGNAGE AT ALL. ANYWHERE. You can wind up taking a wrong turn because this trail intersects with others, as we did, and take your $2000 bike into a mudslide area, as we did. And if it's rained at all before your visit, plan on a swampy ride. If you are a local it might be okay, but if you aren't and are looking for a nice ride, I'd go somewhere else. Not impressed. We won't be back.

Trees down

July, 2020 by printerhughes

There are presently trees down on the trail following a storm (Probably July 11 or 12, 2020). The route is very blocked by bridge number 8, though walkers have moved around one side. This looked too difficult for us to navigate with bicycles. There is a large tree down over the path just east of bridge 16, approx. mile 4.7. It is possible to walk a bicycle under this tree. I do not know where or how to report these. Love the trail, good shade and good condition and beautiful.

Shaded trail keeps you cool

June, 2020 by patrickhconnor

Great tree canopy for majority of trail, the bait shop and Williams Dam are must sees. First few miles from Bedford start need attention, stone should be crushed and packed down and many wash outs need to be addressed
