Limestone Greenway

Our Favorite

September, 2022 by dexter.elkins

My wife and I walk this trail several times a week and love it! It is mostly shaded and is a great place for walking, running, or riding a bike. It is a beautiful area, and very enjoyable.

Bloomington Rail Trail

Fun Trail

July, 2022 by gracarte

I am new to biking, and do not want to ride on the roads. This has been a fun trail to ride on and get back into biking. The ride isn't too challenging, but there are some small incline areas. But that really isn't my point anyway. I want to get out, be active, and enjoy my time. Happy to have found this trail.

Milwaukee Road Transportation Trailway

Trail repaired

June, 2022 by andrews3219_tl

Late May 2022 storms caused Spider Creek to overflow its banks and cause severe erosion in several places between bridges 1 and 5. This has all been repaired and the trail is in good condition.

May 29 out and back ride

June, 2022 by ljdeloha

A friend and I started at Wilson Park and used the access trail to get on the rail trail. Almost immediately we encountered severe flood damage to the trail. This lasted for probably at least 1/3 of a mile. Later we encountered minor flood damage but much less of a problem. I assume this was a recent event since the trail was in perfect condition when I ride it last fall. Despite the flood damage, this is a very pleasant ride. It was interesting to see the dam with the river so full. We stopped along the trail a few times to enjoy the river views, stack rock and the high walled canyons created when the rail bed was built. A very enjoyable trail

maiden voyage

My husband and I started at the dam and road to Bedford. So much parking and nice parking lot. It was a beautiful spring day on the trail. First ride on our new bikes and we are glad we picked Milwaukee

Good Rural Southern Indiana Route

April, 2022 by jawinner

Rode from Wilson Park in Bedford to Williams Dam and back. Actually parked next to the Boys and Girls club as the spur trail is very close, nicer starting point as mentioned in a previous review. There was minor trail damage to the trailbed southwest of Coxton road, just don’t want to hit the ruts going too fast. Totally clear of trees when I was there.

Alternate Parking...

February, 2022 by jayro47421

I've seen and heard many ppl complain about the parking area near L and John Williams Blvd (official trail head) Don't do this bc this parking is a run down area! That first couple miles is awful anyway. It's in an industrial area. And there's better parking at WILSON PARK. Free parking, restrooms, picnic area, rec area. Ya know, a small city park. Google it. You'll find a primitive dirt trail that zig zags a hill. Some of it's steep so be warned if you have mobility issues. This spur-trail is less than a quarter mile long. At the T with the main trail, head left to the westXsouthwest.

Also note, check ahead about the water fountain and restrooms; they were locked up due to covid in autumn of 2021 - hopefully that's not the case now. However, the parking and access are 24 hours with free parking. It's a much better trail head/spur/base. You'll like better, I promise. You'll only miss the most boring parts and awful view to the north east. Happy Trails!!

Not bad conditions, no washouts, only a few sticks, but watch for walnuts! There is no parking at the U Street trailhead, but there is parking approx 1/3 mile east with trail access..

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.
