Pigeon Creek Greenway Passage

really good

April, 2021 by jjpeeplesr

The trail was much better than I expected it to be pretty well maintain nice bike path

Hi-Rail Greenway

The exact opposite of Pigeon Creek Trail - lots of street crossings

March, 2021 by bikin-mike

Typical city trail. Dead straight. Lots of street crossings. All at traffic lights or stop signs so low danger. Crossing at Walnut and 41 has a light, but it’s a 6 lane road so pretty busy. Trail was clean and well marked. Nice solar powered lights. Didn’t see any designated parking areas. Bike rack and repair stand at U-Haul at Riverside Dr so maybe can park there. I parked in a doctor’s office lot at Lincoln and S Keith. Empty at 5PM......bikin-mike Mar 2021

P.s. For a nicer ride, head about 15 minutes west to the USI-Burdette Trail. Not a rail trail so not on Traillink. 3 gorgeous miles of paved twisties and hills through woods, fields and ravines. Well worth the trip.

Pigeon Creek Greenway Passage

Much better than I expected

March, 2021 by bikin-mike

I usually don’t expect much from city trails. Too many streets. This one was a pleasant surprise. Parked at Gavin Park and headed south. Some of the trail on the levee, some on creek side, some on city side. Some nice easy curves and hills over levee and under underpasses. Trail does go around some scrapyards. Some minor trash around the skatepark. Had about 3 miles without streets. Last couple miles downtown along river are next to street, but nice wide promenade separated by planters. Just have to watch out for all the walkers and the scooters. Lots of nice signs about the history of Evansville. I really enjoyed this ride. Probably the best city ride I’ve ever done. Thanks Evansville.....bikin-mike Mar 2021

Rode this starting at Sunset Park, very scenic at the beginning. Nice the rest of the way. Garvin Park is very pretty, not many places for bathroom stops.

Poor Signage

September, 2019 by triedham

Very nice surface but lack of signs makes it difficult to follow the trail in some spots. Nice shade at either end but none in the middle 75%. Be careful crossing the streets. Many drivers don’t respect crosswalks.

Pigeon Creek Greenway Passage

uhhhh NOT FINISHED

April, 2019 by amberwright1222

Would have been great to know online or their website that the trail doesn’t connect!! Ended up biking down first Ave which sucked and tried the entire time to pick up on this trail which ended up imaginary. Just saying it was a LONG day and then made it to the very short portion near the river front. If the sign is there which it is but it’s SO faded it tells me that this project might have been forgotten about. EVANSVILLE finish this could be amazing trail!

A Pleasant Spring Ride

March, 2019 by bruceamiller@comcast.net

A friend and I rode the trail west to east and back on a cool, sunny March day. The trail is 100% paved. Newer sections are very smooth and wide enough to ride two abreast. Older sections have occasional abrupt tree root bumps and are narrower. Parts of the trail reminded us of the Pumpkinvine Trail in Indiana, which has frequent 90 degree turns. Other sections of the trail are long straightaways. The latter had no shelter, so you definitely feel the wind. Portions of the trail are rural; others go through parks and by residences. We enjoyed the mix of bird calls, forsythia in bloom and early spring flowers in parks and yards. The east end of the trail is at Millers Mill Road. We rode north 2 blocks and west 1 block to a welcome cup of coffee and scone at Great Harvest Bread Company. An earlier review mentions two places where trail signage is misleading or missing. It was helpful to have downloaded the map.

Great Ride

December, 2018 by dewayne.conner

I rode the trail 12/06/18 and it’s a great ride even at 40 degree temperatures.
