146th Street Trail

Not Really A Trail

February, 2024 by sweetcat

This is more a sidewalk. It is a miserable ride at best. As others mentioned you are right beside a very busy road - dirt, debris and noise. You are also are at constant risk from the many neighborhood entrances you must cross. It is not a route to ride for fun or enjoyment. Ride this only if you need to get somewhere and want to be a tiny bit safer than riding on the busy street.

Tracy Trail

skating trail for the win

February, 2024 by keepingthepiece

The trail isn’t smooth, and you have to cross multiple roads, but it’s nice having this trail in town along a little winding creek with a couple playgrounds along the way. It starts at Summerfield Park where there’s plenty of parking.

Indianapolis Cultural Trail

Beautiful but not great for quad skating

February, 2024 by keepingthepiece

I’ve skated this trail a few times. It’s so beautiful for the eyes, but the texture of the path is terrible for skates. Even with the softest wheels on the market, the constant rough bumps are not fun. There’s never a break. It goes from bad to worse, then back again. We still skate it for the view, but it sure would be nice if it was smooth. We enjoy the river views, the canal, the swan boats, and the steam lock outside the museum.

White River Greenway Trail (Martinsville)

lovely skating trail by the water

February, 2024 by keepingthepiece

This trail at Waverly Park is great fun on quad skates. There are lots of obstacles like sticks, rocks, seeds, acorns, lifted cracks, rough wooden bridge, bicyclists, and lots of walkers with dogs. Everyone on the trail outs really nice and considerate. There are tons of places to stop and see the gorgeous White River. There are picnic tables of you want to bring a picnic. My skate tracker app clocks the trail at a little over 4.25 miles if you go so the way foam and back to the parking lot.

Nickel Plate Trail (Indianapolis-Fishers-Noblesville)

NPT expansion (Noblesville)

November, 2023 by oliver.strobel

The trail in Noblesville is now open from 146th ST to Pleasant Street. To cross 146th ST, do so at the cross walk light at Herriman Blvd, which is just east of the Nickel PlateTrail (NPT). This short section of the NPT is also quite nice, wooded and feels remote as it parallels the White River. The two repurposed train bridges cross Allisonville Road and Stony Creek.

B&O Trail

Great to see the added length in Hendricks county.

Franciscan Trail

Great Roller- Skating Trail

October, 2023 by keepingthepiece

I skated this trail on quads and absolutely loved it. There’s a variety of slopes and flats, nice scenery, and smooth terrain. Bridges are a little annoying because my skates won’t roll them - way too uneven and bumpy, but the railings are stout and I pulled myself across easily enough. Kids enjoyed it on bikes and scooters.

Karst Farm Greenway

More signage PLEASE!!!

October, 2023 by chrisvg28

We are not from the area, but are familiar with the rails to trails system.
Found the trail head after we gave up and just started from the park. It was a Saturday and the park was busy but 4 sets of eyes in and out of the car never found any signage about where the trailhead was located.
Trail was in good condition, pleasant views and challenging at times but not impossible (for senior ;-) weekend riders). New section is very well done.
What was challenging was the lack of signage at critical turns, which made for an extra 2+ miles of hills that were walked by some. We all agreed it would be a fun trail to ride again but only because we know the route.

Karst Farm Greenway

We walk or ride this trail all the time, love the farmland on both sides of the trail near Ellettsville with the creek is very picturesque. It's a peaceful getaway during a busy day.

Sugar Creek Trail

SHADY BIKE RIDE

September, 2023 by gregmclochlin

The trail now goes over the creek, on a pedestrian bridge. Saw VERY FEW others on this neat fun rail to trail. There are ‘easy’ hills on the eastern trail, pretty flat otherwise. GREAT COOL SHADE almost all the way!
