This trail is lots of fun. I did the Southern section by starting at Noblitt Park and winding along the Flat Rock river and through Mill Race park. You end up at the Western edge of Columbus. The Northern section was even better. I started at the airport next to the Atterbury-Bakalar Air Museum and the newly installed C-119 ‘Flying Boxcar’ troop and cargo transport. First you navigate through a commercial section that leads to a short time on low-travelled city streets. Then you rejoin the well paved path that winds South along Haw Creek and the Greenbelt golf course. Very serene ride through a cityscape with a wonderful mixture of nature and neighborhoods.
This trail is a classic example of short trails connected to longer and developed trails that allow access from neighboring areas. The trail is smooth with short access points along the way … it is open with most sections without tree cover and can get very hot during the Indiana summer ! This is the type of trail needed in many places in Indiana where small feeders trails bring residents out to longer and developed systems!
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!
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
Sunday, October 16, 2022, I parked at the Greencastle trail head, then proceeded to ride all the way to Amo, which was roughly 11.6 miles. I visited the Amo general store (ice cream not open yet, boo!) for a snack, then biked all the way back to Greencastle.
It was a gorgeous fall day, fortunately. However, riding on gravel is not the easiest way to go, even when it's a little packed down. I was so happy to get to the paved portion of this trail!
All told, I enjoyed my adventure. There were places when I had to dodge walnuts, hickory nuts and the like strewn in the pathway but that was part of the show. As the day was extremely windy, going through the open fields was loud! In some places the trees formed a lovely canopy. There were numerous places to rest, and the bathrooms at the Amo trail head were clean and large enough to accommodate my bike so I didn't have to worry about locking it up while I used the restroom. I didn't use the restrooms in Coatesville. They're probably as well kept.
It had been a couple months since I'd been out on my bike for a long ride, and in places, my rear end was feeling, so on the return trip I stopped to walk and push the bike to give my bottom a break. Other riders who passed slowed down to make sure I was okay. I appreciated that.
I definitely recommend this trail and hope to ride it again.
Have ridden this trail several times recently. Lots of shade, mainly flat and very safe. A great quick ride with nice scenery.
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.
Beautiful smooth ride. Visit the Carnegie Library. The ladies love biking visitors. Check out the historic Rosenberger Building also.
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.
