Industrial Heritage Trail

Sweet!

January, 2017 by jamrpoi

I have walked this trail many times just for the exercise. It is well kept, paved and level. Kokomo has done a lot for the trail system and I, as a senior resident appreciate it very much.
The trail intersects with the Walk Of Excellence trail which runs east and west and if you choose to do them both it will total more than eleven miles.
The IHT runs N. & S. and if you go the full length is almost three miles long. It goes past several of Kokomo's former industries, not many of which survived progress but it is still worthwhile to explore. And don't miss the downtown section with its new businesses and bricked paved walkways. Take a few minutes downtown to explore all the changes.
Please keep the trail clean and report all instances of vandalism which are many.

Nice out-of-the-way trail

November, 2016 by jclouse327

** Now extends West to Harzell Rd.

Run this many times, it's a nice little out of the way path. Never crowded, even the parts where you are on the road are mostly clear because the roadway parallels Rt 36. Nice bridge near Gettysburg. Hope this one continues to grow in both directions.

Camping off Bikes

October, 2016 by just*jim

We like to tent camp off our bikes, so sometimes this involves being stealth and staying where there is no official campground. We often stay along the trail or behind public parks. Rarely does anyone know we are there for a night. We are always trying to find places to stop at…for about any reason.

So this review might best serve others who may want to do this also and I will offer information that previous reviews did not.

Oct. 6th ..started at Rochester trail-head (41.055279, -86.201704) …safe overnight parking…port-potti..no water. Come prepared.

1st stop...11 miles..town of Macy..they did have a nice restroom but it was closed because of vandalism …still offered free air for your tires and a pop machine..just go west from the trail and left on Columbia St

2nd stop ..15 miles…town of Deedsville…closed post office with a bench..great place to take a break and just look around. Nothing open anymore…just nostalgia

3rd stop..18 miles…town of Denver…the Denver Tavern…$1 draft beer and good food specials….see https://www.facebook.com/TheDenverTavern/
Also a convenience store w/sandwiches….and an ice cream/food stand by the ball park

End of trail at Lovers Lane.. 22 miles…

Next is my favorite route thru Peru on city streets and back to the bike trail on south side of Peru… where you can pickup the trail as it crosses the Wabash river.. there has not been much traffic on these streets when I have ridden them.

turn left at Lover’s Lane (end of trail), take the first right, which is Denver Pike/CR 30E, going under US 24, it curves to the left and becomes Harrison St…. continue on Harrison to Water St. and turn right. ….take Water St. till it dead ends at Canal St (1 mile)…take a right at Canal St. …follow this until you cross Broadway St…from there you can get onto the Peru River walk (parallels Canal St.)…there is restrooms and water along this scenic trail..its also lighted at night…follow the Peru River walk till it ends..then turn right thru a stone parking lot back to Canal St…to 2nd St…2nd will go into West Side Park…ride across the park to the opposite side and you pick up a very short unpaved trail …it take a one minute ride from the park and it drops you on the trail at the bridge across the Wabash River. I find this is the most scenic and safest route. It’s easier then maybe my directions would suggest.

Camping…we camp just to the left side of the bike bridge. You will find paths leading down to the river. It would appear all the land down there is flooded at times. So if there has been flood conditions lately..this may not work, but we have not had problems yet.
We set our tent up and then ride to Boondocks for dinner and cruise downtown to visit a few other places. The ride back at night is easy and the town seemed safe as any.
Hope this helps someone who is liked minded.

Cardinal Greenway

great ride

October, 2016 by skelgas

Excellent trail, we rode from Gaston to Richmond. SPENT the night at the very clean and quiet KOA IN one of their cabins. I think the only downside of the ride was trying to get thru MUNCIE. All blacktop surface makes a good ride. Lots of friendly people along the ride.

Very Nice Trail

I only had time to ride 5 miles at the head of the trail, but it is gorgeous.

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.

Nickel Plate Trail

Beautiful Trail, no doubt.

August, 2016 by tommyspan

I rode this trail from Rochester southward on August 7th of 2016, and honestly I could not find anything wrong with it other than the fact that there were not many benches for resting. It starts out running alongside Hwy 31, but soon veers off, it becomes quiet, and you realize you are now surrounded by nice views of Indiana farmland on both sides. In addition to the trail, Rochester is a nice little town with impressive older homes near its historic looking downtown. And the Dam Bar and Grill on the shore of Lake Manitou is a great place to eat with nice lake views.

Monon Trail

Great Trail

July, 2016 by mkozimor

My husband and I are 69 and, after some research, decided to visit Indianapolis in July for a 4 day bicycling mini-vacation. We left on a Wednesday morning and arrived around 1:00 at the downtown Courtyard Marriott. We enjoy casual, recreational biking, and not going much beyond 20 miles roundtrip. Indianapolis was a perfect destination! The hotel had valet parking, which we appreciated! Day one: The person at the hotel desk gave us bicycle maps and told us how to get to the Monan Trail, since we decided to go from Indianapolis to Broad Ripple that first day. We were to take the Cultural Trail through the downtown to get to the Monan. The Cultural Trail is amazing – It is a bricked trail dedicated to bicyclists, much of the time next to a sidewalk for pedestrians and totally separated from car traffic throughout the downtown area. All we had to do to get to it was cross the street! I have to admit, we got lost, but eventually found our way to the beginning of the Monan. The first part of that trail went through some industrial areas, that seemed somewhat “sketchy”, but it was sunny, there were other people along the way, and we felt safe. There is not a whole lot of shade in this area, so it was hot. We had an early dinner in Broad Ripple at a little pub, explored the area for a bit, and headed back. Total (included getting somewhat lost!) : just under 20 miles. After storing the bikes behind the front desk of the hotel, we cleaned up and rested a bit, and headed across the street to walk around the canal district. Beautiful area! A walking/biking trail goes around the whole area. Gondolas and pedal boats were going up and down the canal. Museums line the canal. We listened to a free concert and had a snack at an eating place along the way! Day two: We decided to explore downtown Indianapolis in more depth. We rode the entire Cultural Trail and found out how easy it should have been to find the Monan yesterday! We stopped and took pictures at several landmarks and public buildings. We stopped at the City Market, and walked around the stalls of food. We went inside Circle Center Mall, a shopping center with all your typical stores in the middle of the downtown. Then we rode along the canal district, which did not seem too crowded on a Thursday afternoon. As we rode by the Indiana History Center, we saw that it was free admission on Thursday, so we went in for a short visit. We only got in about 13 miles total on day two and went back to the hotel to rest and get ready for dinner in Zionsville at a restaurant we had heard about called the Salty Cowboy - great restaurant, cute town! That night we walked over to the Canal District to listen to a free concert in front of the Indiana History Center. We sat on the hillside across the canal from the venue and thoroughly enjoyed the music and watching people dancing along the canal! Day three: We put our bikes back on the car and traveled to Broad Ripple to continue on the Monan Trail and get to Carmel! This ride was almost totally through shaded areas – so nice for another hot day! Carmel is an upscale, beautiful area, with restaurants along the bike trail. If we go back, we would stop at Bubb's Burgers for a meal! Lots of fun statues on the trail, including a police officer directing traffic, a man helping a child ride a bike, and more. We would have explored longer, but it looked like we might be getting rain, so we headed back. About 18 miles round trip. We spent that evening with a relative... Day four: We got a late check-out time of 1:00, so we had time in the morning for some more exploring. We decided to take the Skywalk in the hotel to go to the center of downtown and have breakfast. The Indianapolis Skywalk goes all over the city, between hotels, to the Lucas Oil Stadium, to the City Center Mall, and more. It was pretty deserted, but it was interesting to follow. We came out at City Center Mall and ate breakfast outside at Cafe Patachou. We then walked the rest of the way back to our hotel, got our bikes and went back near the Canal area, but this time went towards the Indianapolis Zoo. So glad we didn't miss this area! We were able to ride via bike trail almost all the way around the zoo. We also discovered another connecting trail – the White River Trail. We turned back after a short time, but enjoyed the scenic ride along the river. Then we went on the other side of the zoo and rode on the White River Promenade quite a distance, a trail separated from the zoo by huge boulders stacked along the path. Beautiful! Total ride about 15 miles. Synopsis of why we loved Indianapolis for biking: 1. Trails were almost totally flat 2. Crossings were mostly easily done – crossing buttons at most of them, to stop traffic; drivers were used to bicyclists and stopped for you at crossing areas whether there was a button or not 3. Trails connected to almost everything and connected to other trails in the area. 4. We stayed right across from the Cultural Trail and had easy access. 5. It felt VERY safe. 6. It was VERY clean. 7. Lots to see and do.

Nickel Plate Trail

First Century Ride

July, 2016 by fivek555

I decided to do my first century ride one Saturday Morning. The day was great however there was a head wind from the North so it was nice starting in Kokomo and getting the north part of the trip done first. It is just about as flat as it can be. There is a slight uphill going all the way to Rochester however most people would not even notice much. Several county roads to cross and getting through Peru was very easy. No cars and very few bicycles on the trail ,even on a Saturday. Loved the trail and will visit again soon.

Nickel Plate Trail
