Walkin the trail

July, 2019 by thutch1413

Had a really fun time. Great for walking your dogs. The nowhere to park thing sucks and there arent any water fountains like the kind they have at the B-line trail in Bloomington. But it has great sceneryb nice mile markers.

Franklin Greenway Trail

Nice Trail, But Could Use Better Signage

July, 2019 by stvatandem

My wife and I parked at Blue Heron Park just off Rt-31 and rode eastward. The route is paved all the way, but it pays to be familiar with the route. We made a few wrong turns since there are very few signs directing us where to go. For example, the route goes through a cemetery. When we got to it, there was no indication which road in the cemetery to take. We eventually found the right way, but had to "hunt around" a bit. A map at the trailhead would have been helpful. A big plus is that much of the trail in Franklin is shaded. It's a bit more "open" when you travel farther east.

B-Line Trail

Pretty but don't go alone

July, 2018 by zether8877

I've been on the B-Line Trail a few times. When I was in a group of three walking dogs it was nice with pretty views. The one time my car broke down and I biked the rest of the way to work on the B-Line, two guys started cat calling me and throwing insults in a dangerous and aggressive manner. It also felt like I was being followed at one point when I had to take a walk break.

Great trail

July, 2018 by gwb195605

Great trail but hard to find. Started on the Bedford side and even stopping to ask directions it was hard to locate. Also nowhere to park had to park on the street. For such a good trail you would think the city would do more to help out of owners locate it. If there was parking and signage would have given a 5.

good ride!

June, 2018 by hammer757

Just rode this trail yesterday, but got stuck in the local coffee shop for 1.5 hours waiting for a strong storm cell to pass through. We almost gave up and headed home but the rain finally stopped and away we went. starting from the "U" street access there was parking but I think the parking area belongs to the business close by. Its a gravel area and I don't feel the business minds a few cars parked at the far end of their property. Although the trail has its ups and downs the overall flow is downhill from the "U" street starting point making the return trip a bit more aerobic. The trail was covered with forest debris and 6 downed trees due to the storm that just passed through. My son developed a slow leak in his rear tire at about the turn around point (10.2 miles out) so I topped off his tire pressure hoping it would hold out for the return. No such luck, with about 7 miles to go he went totally flat. we ended up fixing his tire right next to a guys house (the trail crossed over his front driveway). The owner came out to check on us. Great guy, retired, and offered his air compressor to fill the new tube. We were on our way in 10 minutes. I would recommend no smaller than 35mm width tires. we used our mountain bikes with larger tires and due to storm debris, I'm glad we did. When we got back to the car my sons front tire was nearly flat. What ever he hit, he got both tires. We decided to stop at a local restaurant called "Pappas". Very popular with the local Bedford residents. Its not fancy but the fried chicken was excellent and the wait staff was great. We enjoyed the trail and will ride it again. The three star rating is due to no water on the trail so bring plenty and a less than perfect parking situation. There are two porta-potties. One at the trailhead and one more about 4.5 miles out

unsure

July, 2017 by kristin.creager

They're only a couple places you can get onto this trail. It seems pretty inaccessible other than the start and end. Have a Specialized hybrid. and it did not handle well. Had to turn around shortly after starting. Wish this was paved!

B-Line Trail

Great Trail

We ride this trail whenever we can and all the trails that join the B-Line. Well maintained and friendly folks from start to finish. Great Trail!!!

Great trail

3/20/17 rode my Trek X-Cal 29er roundtrip from N Street in Bedford to the Williams Dam - the trail is complete and well-maintained. A great resource for locals and a hidden gem for travelers. Bedford is a friendly small city and this location will be on my regular circuit.

I live near this trail and love the connection between the Clear Creek Trail and the B-line. :)

Awesome discovery!

August, 2016 by andersondan

I started at U Street trailhead (the only parking that I am aware of) on a hybrid 15-speed. I think that this is the perfect bike for the trail. Skinny street tires might not do so well in the gravel. The gravel is very small and well packed though. There was a port-a-john at U Street and at Cockston Rd. I rode about 55 minutes, and turned around just past a new covered bridge. The steepest portion was from Cockston Rd, headed away from Bedford. Riding it in the highest gear, I got a good burn going. The trail is very scenic, with rock outcroppings, woodlands, farm fields, etc. I saw one deer, and several rabbits. Do take water, as there is none on the trail. This trail has a five-star potential. It was a little weedy as I got further from Bedford, and a large tree had fallen across it at one point. I look forward to riding this again, and to seeing the future extensions opened.
