Wabash River Trail

beautiful river trail

October, 2022 by rogerpedwards

Well maintained asphalt trail with woods and river scenery. Nice Bistro overlooking river in Lagro.

Miami & Erie Canal Towpath

Not paved

October, 2022 by rdhemm63

We live just 20 miles from this path. And did it for the first time yesterday. We did New Breman to St Marys. Started out beautiful but a mile out of town we lost the path. Only to find out it is a grass path between the canal and a corn field. Would be beautiful quiet walking path. But for sure not for bikes. We cut around and did some back roads and tried again further north. But the whole way from NB to SM is grass. May need to check out further south.

Heritage Trail (IN)

picturesque village and wooded trail

September, 2022 by bradtollefson

The trail passes through what the locals call Winona Village which is a small peninsula with a shop lined canal and many picturesque houses. Definitely worth exploring. There's a side trail that takes you up to Grace College. It's a mile long and goes through secluded woods with trail side sculptures. That's a mile long so adds 2 miles. You can circle the lake (i suggest going clock wise so you are always making right turns and don't have to cross traffic). The college detour and circling the lake gives you a 10 mile loop. Detour into downtown for another 2 miles. There are many nice houses along main and center streets. The courthouse and surrounding square is very picturesque.

Nickel Plate Trail

Rochester to Peru

September, 2022 by ccongdon70

A nice trail and a fun ride. It could use bathrooms in more locations, better trimming along the trail, trail surface repair is also needed in some areas. The numerous cross streets with unusual angles and number of streets need better trimming for visibility.

Wabash River Trail

Beautiful Trail with Lovely Bridges

August, 2022 by ebhostetler

We began at the Hill St. Trailhead and rode into Lagro, then back to the west end of Wabash. There were rest rooms at three areas of Wabash (not Hill St.) and in Lagro. It was a good mixture of terrains and scenery, with the Wabash town being prettiest. The next time we will not go up the hill and into Lagro: we had to push our bikes up the hill, and we didn't like the .6 mile gap on shared road into Lagro.

favorite indiana trail system

August, 2022 by bradtollefson

We parked at East Winney park which allowed us to return to our car between doing branches of the trail. There are no bathrooms there, but there are plenty full service restrooms along the trail. We did the entire trail and adding in the side parks you can optionally do and a brief detour for lunch we ended up with 75 miles. I think if you stuck to the trails themselves you'd be looking at around 50-55 miles. Our favorite path was the one going east to New Haven as that path is the most secluded and follows the river which is visible for most of the way. What is particularly nice is that these are not straight boring rail trails through corn fields. There is a lot of variety and distractions along the way. There are a few short bits in town that are a bit trafficy but they're quickly forgotton as most of the ride is along the river and through parks.

First time on the trail.
Love the tunnel of trees!
Smooth!
The hidden switchbacks can sneak up on you.
Wish the trail was much longer than 7.7

Wabash & Erie Canal Towpath Trail

Pleasant and Calming. Nice Short Trail

July, 2022 by bentriderken

This isn't one of the greatest scenic trails but it does have unique beauty if you look close enough. The best feature is the wetland the borders one side of some of the trail. While we didn't see much wildlife, meadow flowers were in bloom. There is a boardwalk overlook with many hibiscus in full bloom. We went in mid July. More people were riding on a Monday morning than we expected. The surface was great.
