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!
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!
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.
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 .
Today was my first time on the B&O trail. I have always wanted to ride it since I was a teenager, the section of the trail that goes from Raceway to Tansel was right down the street from my grandmas house but back then a mountain bike would have been required and I don't think Gravel bikes were a thing yet. Ended up doing two end to end trips today and had an absolute blast, the squirrels were not to pleased with me though.
Way to crowded, bit boring
A nice trail and a fun ride. It could use bathrooms in more locations, better trimming along the trail, trail surface repair is also needed in some areas. The numerous cross streets with unusual angles and number of streets need better trimming for visibility.
Enjoyed a beautiful ride through fields East of Urbana, IL to St. Joseph. Paved approaches to road crossings and nice surfaces for the trail. Multiple bike stations for minor repaira and free at the East end at the Casey's.
We traveled from NW Indy to ride the IHT. The trail itself was pretty spectacular…all asphalt, concrete, or brick…smooth, easy to navigate, and lots of lights (for evening use). However, we also noticed cameras on every 4th pole (give or take). Not sure if the cameras are functional or just for show. If functional, one wonders if the area is so unsafe that cameras were needed. On a beautiful Saturday afternoon, the trail was desolate…maybe we passed two~three people along the entire route. As we rode along the trail, we traveled through quite a bit of urban and industrial blight…abandoned factories, neglected/run-down houses, and sketchy trailer parks. A highlight of the trip…we parked at the courthouse on Main St and visited Mo Joe coffee shop. Really cute/comfy place to chill for a bit. Net-net…we won’t return to the IHT. The trail itself is great, the environment…another story.
A nice ride. The hub is a good place to start.
