Big 4 Trail (Lebanon to Thorntown)

Great Ride

April, 2020 by jana.parsons

This is a great trail if you have a mountain bike. The first few miles are paved, but there are some sections that had some small gravel. It was mostly comfortable riding, but as I said-on my mountain bike. I would not take a road bike on the length of this trail. You have to do some crossing of country roads that aren't paved. It's a nice, peaceful ride overlooking some fields and beautiful scenery. The only issue I had is when the trail gets to Thorntown and when you cross the street-look for the blue markers on the pavement. I initially missed it, but found my way. The trail ends up on a bridge overlooking Sugar Creek. I am excited for them to finish the trail all the way to Colfax and then to Lafayette.

106th Street Path

Smooth, fast, and enjoyable

April, 2020 by staleys69

The trail is fast and smooth with very few major intersections. This is my new favorite bike ride.

Ronald Reagan Parkway Trail

Solid Trail

March, 2020 by pereztrace2016

This trail has been connected from Stafford all the way to Brownsburg, which is really awesome. I love the area and the minimal foot traffic along the path. There is one section in need of a drain or ditch on the side in order to prevent sitting water and mud from getting on the pavement and making it slick. A few lights every quarter mile or so would be awesome as well!

Great American Rail-Trail

Best Trail Ever

January, 2020 by cbyounger

This is the best trail I have ever ridden!

B&O Trail

A Welcome Retreat

September, 2019 by davemarty54

My wife and I moved to the area just three months ago, but this trail has quickly become one of my favorite places to get away, usually on my bicycle. As others have said, it's mostly quiet and well maintained. In fact, as I rode this morning a man was slowly riding his three-wheeler and blowing fallen leaves off the trail. Much appreciated!
