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.

Converse Junction Trail

Very nice trail

July, 2017 by mmohring66

Very nice 2 mile paved trail with parking at trailhead. Ride into Converse a few blocks for ice cream at the Big Dipper! Trail connects to the Sweetser Switch trail and then on to Cardinal Greenway for a nice 15 mile trip.

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.

Blue River Trail

Easy stroll

July, 2017 by dvincent4516

7 bird species noted this AM. Some shade. Also exposed areas so best to walk early AM in summer. Bathrooms accessible in Morsches Park, at least in morning. Easy stroll along macadam.

Wabash & Erie Canal Towpath Trail

Beautiful, Hazardous and Stinky

July, 2017 by kristin.creager

You ride on a paved trail through some peaceful marshes and wetlands. Since you ride through habitat for abundant wildlife it can be hazardous at times. One ride had encounters with hundreds of frogs, bats, possums, raccoons, stork and deer. The trail passes by two water treatment plants which smell awful

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.
