B&O Trail

Great Trail

September, 2017 by artsyjo

We rode this yesterday for the first time. Beautiful...lots of shade, nice scenery, well maintained. It is now almost completed to 6 miles, so you can make a good 12 mile ride. They have almost completed the two segments. We walked our biked across the road that divided the two halves, over some gravel, but just a very short distance. The only down side is that there are no restrooms, only 2 benches for a rest stop in Brownsburg, and the parking at the trail head in Brownsburg only accommodates a few cars. But it was a beautiful experience...so many trees, quiet, not too crowded, you cross over a small river and creek. Overall a very good ride.

Vandalia Trail

Excellent!

August, 2017 by drreneeke

What a beautiful trail! Newly paved from Amo for a few miles before hitting the gravel path. We did the full 16 and was hoping there would be a restaurant to stop at once we hit Coatsville but there was nothing convenient at the end of the trail. Be sure to bring plenty of water and snacks. Beautiful scenery. We saw butterflies and hummingbirds throughout most of the trail. Very peaceful.

Monon Trail

Rode my bike on trail

July, 2017 by derek.chapel

I rode from downtown Indy to Westfield. There were water stations and bathrooms all along the trail and a lot of shade on the trail from all the trees next too the trail.

Milwaukee Road Transportation Trailway

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

May, 2017 by frank17

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!!!

Fall Creek Trail (IN)

Beautiful in areas

April, 2017 by kgremosindy

I only give it three stars for a variety of reasons even though portions of the trail are beautiful to ride on. We ride this trail frequently as part of our commute to work in downtown Indianapolis. The north section of trail between Skiles Test Park and 56th Street/Emerson is very nice. It has fairly new asphalt, sits up out of the flood plain, and is wide enough to provide for safe passing of pedestrians. The southern section of the trail from approximately Fall Creek Pkwy and Allisonville Rd to Fall Creek Pkwy and Central Ave is also in good shape but you have to cross the river via the 38th St Bridge (on the busy road or on the pot hole/light pole filled sidewalk). The trail currently dead-ends at Central Avenue due to road and bridge work. The portion of trail between 56th/Emerson and Allisonville/Fall Creek needs a major upgrade. It is narrow, bumpy, curvy, and floods or holds water when it rains. Because it is within the flood plain, silt tends to collect which makes for slick going after a rain event. Once this section is upgraded and they finish the 38th St Bridge crossing it will be a very nice trail to the near northeast side. It will be even better if they ever continue it all the way downtown.

Indianapolis Cultural Trail

Fun Urban Trail

April, 2017 by arblady32

I rode and my daughter ran the Cultural Trail in September 2016. It is mainly a large square around the downtown area with a few branches which in some cases connect with other trails (the Monon and Pleasant Creek Trails). We found the trail to be very well marked and easy to follow with many opportunities for stopping at a cultural venue or a quick bite to eat or to relax at an outdoor park. A highlight of the trail is the portion that dips below street level along The Canal and connects with the White River Wapahani Trail which goes by the Indianapolis Zoo. The trail is easy to negotiate and quite flat. That said, this is not the trail for a training ride as there are many streets to cross and the trail is shared in some places with walkers occasionally making for crowded conditions. It is a trail very well-suited for a leisurely ride with easy access and parking, and definitely rates very highly among urban trails.

Milwaukee Road Transportation Trailway

Great trail

March, 2017 by emmis

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.

Monon Trail

Best trail I've seen yet!

March, 2017 by erob_stbc

This is one great trail! My favorite so far in Indy. Lots of water, bathrooms, people, scenery. I run it every chance I get when I'm in Indy. I live in Lake County and our trails suck compared to the Monon!

Monon Trail

Nice Trial

September, 2016 by mpmpuckett

My wife and I rode this entire trial on July 23, 2016. This was are first trial of the Rail- Trail Hall of Fame book we got from this website. There are 29 Trials in all. Our goal is to ride all of them in the years to come. We Started this trial from sothern trial point in Indianapolis and rode notrh to westfield. Trial is all paved and in good shape. there is alot of cross streets in sothern part so be carefull. lots of places to eat and shop on the way. So get out ride.

Monon Trail

Fine, but could be better

August, 2016 by pedalfree

I've ridden the entire length of the Monon Trail and although I like it, I can think of a number of similar trails (Boise River Greenbelt, GAP and 3 Rivers Heritage Trails in Pittsburgh, North Cedar Lake Trail, Grand Rounds and Midtown Greenway in Minneapolis) that are far superior. The problem is the road crossings. It's not just that they exist, but that they're very poorly designed. Take 86th Street, for example. It requires you to detour east to an intersection to cross this busy arterial. I understand budgetary constraints, but at the very least a dedicated signaled crosswalk seems appropriate here. It just feels wrong, as if no cyclists were consulted in the design. Lately, crime has been a bit of a problem along the Monon as well. If you live in Indy, this is a fine resource and, as the description states, a potential transportation corridor. That's good. With a few design improvements, it could be much better. If you're from out of town, there are other trails I'd travel to before the Monon.
