We took advantage of the unseasonably warm weather on New Years Eve and rode the length of this trail. We rode to the trailhead on Zionsville Road and went North from there. As of 12/31/22, the trail is uninterrupted from Zionsville Rd to Heritage Trail Park. You can go a little further North but after you cross S 800 E it turns into what looks like a driveway and eventually ends. I presume this will continue in the future, you can tell where the rail used to be. The whole thing is paved and some if it new, some old. Most of the intersections either go under or over the crossings which was nice, you hardly had to stop anywhere. The restrooms at the Zionsville City Hall were immaculate, and they had a really cool bike repair station there. Overall, it's a fairly short segment but if you want to get in 10-12 miles round trip it's worth the ride!
The trail itself is lovely, mostly through farm fields and along a creek/ravine, with new asphalt and signage, and a crossing light at the busiest intersection. That being said, the trail is not complete as Illustrated in the map. The section bordered by N CR 600 W and W CR 700 N was not paved and is actually fenced-off. It appears that the land owners were unwilling to sell this to the trail association, Healthy Communities of Henry County. Also, there are no specified trailheads for parking and no port-o-pots.
In the last week of October 2022, while heading to N. VA. to attend a hobby
show, I decided to bring along the bike to sample some bike trails along the way.
First stop was Richmond IN, southern terminus of the Cardinal Greenway,
another Rail-Trail Hall of Fame trail [My 4th]. It reminded Me of the Tanglefoot
Trail a bit, due to the rural region, only instead of cotton & soybeans, the crop
is corn. Quite a bit of harvesting going on. Saw lots of Fall foliage as well; a
bonus of riding there during this time of year. [Peak "Leaf Peeping" season].
Oct 24 I rode the stretch from Richmond to Losantville & back [50 miles].
Oct 25 I rode from Losantville to Muncie & back [36 miles]. I ran into some
construction near the Depot Trailhead in Muncie, so cut the ride short there,
as rain also threatened. (A detour was possible, but unsigned; too bad.)
Overall I really enjoyed this trail; very light grades made for an easy peddle.
The route parallels US 35 so trailhead access is easy, with plenty of rest stops,
though only a few have water available, so bring a good supply to start. Will return
to do the northern portion next year.
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.
If you like great scenery of this beautiful town, on a fast pace and comfortable ride- this is a ride for you. The roundabouts are easy to maneuver once you get use to them. Many bike friendly motorist in a town use to cyclist. Also darted with some fun short hills!
The ride was beautiful, quiet and relaxing. The creek was so nice and was nearby throughout the entire trail. Beautiful area
Well maintained asphalt trail with woods and river scenery. Nice Bistro overlooking river in Lagro.
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.
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.
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.
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 .
