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.

Nickel Plate Trail

Gorgeous ride on a cool fall day

September, 2017 by kuffner

Rode 34 miles of the trail this weekend. Weather was cool with only a slight breeze. We started in Rochester and rode to Denver and back on Saturday. The trail gets prettier as you ride south. If you have limited time or energy start at Peru and ride south from there. Entire trail is clean paved and well maintained with benches about every 5 miles or so. Limited restrooms but plenty of remote areas for emergency use.

Delphi Historic Trails

Disappointing

September, 2017 by pepley7

First of all at the present time September 4, 2017, route 18 from I-65 toward Delphi is closed. Our GPS kept trying to take us that way, and no matter what side street we tried when we came back to route 18 it was closed. So find an alternate route, before you head out. When we got into Delphi we went to Canal Park. There are some gravels paths that run along both sides of the canal. When we took a trail into town, there was absolutely no signage telling us where to find another bike trail, path, route or anything. We only managed to clock around 4 miles altogether. And about two miles of that was on the streets of Delphi. There are some nice historical houses and building to see along the way, so that was one positive thing. We were looking for a nice continuous trail, and that is not what we found here. We went into Lafayette instead.

Big 4 Trail (Lebanon to Thorntown)

nice trail

September, 2017 by jtkoehler2

couldn't get to the trail head in thorntown the road was closed. So we got on off pearl st and franklin south of SR 47. the trail to start was paved. As soon as we got out of thorntown, the pavement was a little rough. As we headed south east it varied from a little rough to some lose gravel. The lose gravel ended about a 1/2 mile north of Hazelrigg rd. 300 n. it was new smooth pavement. We rode south about another mile and turned around. We ran across another rider who said the new pavement goes for a way the it was back to what was north of Hazelrigg. ( not as rough) He said when you get nearer to Lebanon it goes back to smooth pavement. We are working up the 20 mile round trip Thorntown to Lebanon. We did half today ( hazelrigg). (10 miles) We are both in our 60's and having ridden much over the past 15 years.

Panhandle Pathway

Confusing

August, 2017 by jdlanier

tried to find the southern terminus by following the map directions. Ended on a private road with no sign of the trail. Because I grew up in that area I was able to find the trail access point at CR 50N, not 50S like in the map. May confuse those counting on trail access from Berry Lane; there is none.

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.

Panhandle Pathway

Enjoyable Ride

July, 2017 by emmis

Another outstanding trail in north central Indiana for road biking - be aware of a few gravel road crossings and enjoy the scenery from Kenneth to Winamac and back or the other way around. Royal Center and Star City provide strategic respite and services.

Nickel Plate Trail

The whole trail is a great ride

July, 2017 by emmis

The whole trail is a great ride and the communities along the route are full of friendly people and accommodating services. What a jewel of a rail-trail.

Panhandle Pathway

Beautiful trail!!!! Well maintained!!!

July, 2017 by laura.schnick_tl

Love this trail!!! Will definitely be riding this again!!!

Panhandle Pathway

Love it!

June, 2017 by weaverdennisl

I do love this trail! There and back netted me over 40 miles of awesome riding. There were two places, approx. 10 feet long, where the asphalt was missing and gravel in it's place, where I think maintenance was about to begin, not sure though. I bonked out and had no food in my bike bag, but stopped at a Family Dollar store next to the trail and got some Fig cookies and a Honey Bun. The Honey Bun did the trick! I wish I had a trail like this one where I live!

Panhandle Pathway

Now my favorite Trail !!

June, 2017 by stancks

My wife and I found this trail for the first time today. It was a beautiful, scenic 20+mile stretch which was immaculate and well kept. The asphalt had zero cracks and looked brand new. Bridges over the Tippecanoe River and Indian creek were very nice. Got to meet some of the volunteers - Friends of the Panhandle Pathway. Very Nice people!. Drove 2 hours from Dyer Indiana to get there. It was definitely worth the drive.

Nickel Plate Trail

naked rider

June, 2017 by gregorywall

The easy to find trailhead is a half mile West of Hwy 31 on Hwy 35. It is about 14.5 miles North to the Wabash River in Peru and the trail extends another half mile. You are then directed through the city of Peru for 4.5 miles by road markers until you pick up the trail again just north of Peru. The trail then continues about 20 miles until it ends in Rochester. The trail is paved asphalt and flat. It is very scenic and there are numerous places to visit in Peru and Rochester. It is an easy 45 minute drive from the North side of Indianapolis to the trailhead up Hwy 31. Safe travels.
