Hagan-Burke Trail

A nice bypass to north east Carmel

October, 2022 by dan.peterssccl

This is a great trail to help avoid the congested area of 146 street in Carmel/Westfield, especially if you are going east off the Monon trail. Also a great access toward Carmel High Athletic field using Greyhound pass trail.

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.

Monon Trail

Inline skated from Grand Park north to the end of the trail - the path is wide, smooth, and not crowded. Then turned around and skated through Carmel, down to 86th. it gets crowded near Carmel, but the path is in great condition all the way.

Monon Trail

Go North for some room to breathe

September, 2022 by lee.jamesb

Today we rode North from Grand Park in Westfield to Sheridan, IN and it was outstanding. Great pavement, smooth and wide all the way, it bumps up a bit 1/4 mile from the end of the line but not too bad really. Some really nice scenery and some old phone poles tucked in amongst the trees. Shade almost all the way too. A total treat.

Nickel Plate Trail (Indianapolis-Fishers-Noblesville)

Real nice ride

September, 2022 by lee.jamesb

5 miles and counting we began at 106th street and rode up to 146th Street, on the way back rode through Downtown Fishers and to the top of the parking garage, good fun, split off of the main trail and headed Back North on the old trail that follows the creek with lots of twists and turns. Great ride. Smooth all the way and very well maintained.

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.

Midland Trace Trail

This trail is shaping up nicely

September, 2022 by lee.jamesb

We ride the Midland frequently, it has been updated through Westfield and now takes you East to connecting trails in Noblesville at State Road 32 & Hague Rd and to the Monon Trail Westerly with options to ride as far as Meijer Supermarket too. By joining the Monon you can ride as far as Sheridan, IN. This trail is in very good condition and has lots of shade and small wildlife .

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 Goshen 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.

Bridgewater Club Trail

Well kept your through a really nice area

September, 2022 by lee.jamesb

Great neighborhood trail for bikes, golf carts, pedestrian traffic, and dog walking. We ride our eBikes through here and it’s fun with smooth trails and beautiful scenery. It connects to the Carey road trail in two places which will also get you to the Midland Trail and from there the Monon. Look for golf carts as you ride though some of the blind corners can be a surprise.

Carey Road Trail

Bumpy but convenient, Carey rd 146th to 32

September, 2022 by lee.jamesb

A nice well kept trail that goes from 146th street all the way to the Midland Trail and the Kroger Plaza on Hwy 32. Lots of pedestrians, bikes, and Golf Carts. Bumpy and narrow going past Bridgewater.

Monon Trail

nice pavement

September, 2022 by b4ss95xpfk

Way to crowded, bit boring

White River Greenway (Carmel)

Nice easy/short trail

September, 2022 by 2fvd7sfqn4

Nice trail with plenty of shady portions. Interesting points along paved trail to access a more rugged portion that runs closer to the river.
