B&O Trail

B&O Trail

2024 - we live 1 mile from the trail and can get to it pretty easy. The ride is great. All asphalt and in great shape. Several main roads have to be crossed but all have signal lights to help. Tilden is no longer the end of the trail. There is another ~ 3 miles of new asphalt west of Tilden. A new parking lot was added at 300/900. Enjoy. It’s or go to for weekly rides.

Vandalia Trail

June 10, 2024 Starting @ Amo, Indiana is a nice trail head with water and clean bathrooms. Heading West in Hendricks County is a well maintained asphalt path. I do t remember any breaks or bad spots like other trails where tree roots have caused the asphalt to buckle. The ride west takes you out of Hendricks County and into Putnam County. The ride (about 4 miles) is tree lined and well protected. When you cross the county line the path switches to crushed rock, maybe limestone. Regardless, it is easy to navigate. I’ve ridden a lot of trails outside of Chicago and am used to this type of path. In 3.5 miles is Filmore and turned to head back. Great ride. Highly recommended.


Big 4 Trail (Lebanon to Colfax)

pretty nice trail

June, 2024 by giannopolis

Started at Colfax park and rode through Thorntown to Lebanon. After a break, rode back to starting point. Right at 30mi roundtrip. Sections of trail inside town limits were very bumpy from roots. Probably older original trail sections. Rural sections newer and smooth.

Anderson Airport Trail

A short 1.47 miles, paved with slight inclines, clean and quiet. Parked in Chesterfield behind the airport at the American legion, it's free, good spot for a trailhead. Watches some planes take off. Raced a squirrel.

Woolly Bear Parkway Trail

mosquito heaven

Trail was all grass and tall at some points. Me and my 2 kids got bit up super bad though by mosquitoes. Spiders webs and mosquitoes are horrible.

Franklin Greenway Trail

Great little well-maintained bike/walk path!

Hamrick Station Trail

Coyotes on the trail ,use caution with small pets.

May, 2024 by patriciabalderas10

I'm just passing this along I found it on the Green Castle chatter . It was post by
Dena Mancuso Ferguson.

I was walking my dogs on the Hamrick Station Trail off Manhattan rd. Around the 1 mile mark there are some coyotes likely w pups. My dogs briefly tussled w one and I was able to call them off. As I was walking back another one popped out of the woods and started barking at us. I yelled at it and it went back in the woods. I wanted to give a heads up. I have big dogs and they’re fine but a smaller dog could get hurt.

Big 4 Trail (Lebanon to Colfax)

It’s not bad

May, 2024 by jawinner

As with most rail trails, this one has tons of invasives. Seems like it was in need of mowing and pruning the sides. It’s asphalt the entire way now which is nice. The bumps are not terrible, and the worst ones are painted in orange. It’s definitely worth doing once if you are from out of the area like me. However it doesn’t have a lot of features compared to some other trails I have been on. For some reason I prefer the Nickel Plate and Converse/Sweetser trails northeast of here. Still 4 out of 5 stars for me.

White River Wapahani Trail

pretty good

May, 2024 by fly777300

Started the trail at Washington street and proceeded south. Trail was clean and clear until Oliver avenue then multiple tents with homeless folks under the overpasses. The trail gets narrower toward Kentucky avenue overpass and it turns into dirt and wooded area. I came back toward the north and the trail is very nice and clean.

Big 4 Trail (Lebanon to Colfax)

Great trail. A few bumps from tree roots but mostly smooth. It was very windy the day we rode but enough trees to provide a nice wind break. Started in Colfax-nice parking area. Didn’t notice a restroom. Thorntown got a little confusing to pick up trail but we figured it out. Great photo op Big 4 Trail painted mural under overpass.
