Central Canal Towpath

Great trail

October, 2021 by tonyeret

Rode the trail today on a beautiful October day tying it in with the white river trail from downtown Indy. Temperature was 60 degrees and the path was in great shape after overnight rain. Sun King brewery at the turnaround. Awesome trail

Milwaukee Road Transportation Trailway

Not bad conditions, no washouts, only a few sticks, but watch for walnuts! There is no parking at the U Street trailhead, but there is parking approx 1/3 mile east with trail access..

Pennsy Trail

Great Trail.

October, 2021 by llewis230

I rode the Pennsy today from Irvington to the trail end at Mt Comfort Rd, and back. It’s an excellent paved trail with only sparse usage making for a relaxed ride. Next time we may navigate the gap between Mt Comfort and Greenfield and check out the eastern section.

Monon Trail

A great ride, but keep your eyes open in Westfield

September, 2021 by davidsontm

A new favorite! We rode from the Carmel trailhead north to Sheridan and back. The trail was beautifully, freshly blacktopped in the Carmel area - but also very heavily trafficked (granted, it was a beautiful day and Labor Day weekend). Once we got a bit further north, the trail was still smoothly paved, but we had it largely to ourselves. The trail is well-shaded for much but not all of the stretch north to Sheridan.

So to be clear, we loved the trail. From here on, I'll focus on providing info you might find useful.

Be advised, the Monon in this stretch is not always very well marked. It's especially sketchily marked in the Westfield area, where we ended up making an accidental detour west on 186th Street. The problem is compounded by the fact that there are sidewalks and paved trails all around you in that area that to all appearances could be the Monon.

FWIW, going north from 186th you should be starting at the intersection of 186th and Wheeler Rd, which changes names to Tomlinson Rd north of the intersection. From 186th north, it's basically a straight shot and there's really no question about whether you're on the Monon.

The trail becomes gradually less suburban and more rural the farther north you go from 186th, and you end by riding past barns and cornfields in the Sheridan area.

At Sheridan the trail ends at an American Legion hall at 236th St. There are two or three gas stations a short ways east on 236th where you can get drinks/food and use the restroom, but you'll have to ride on-road to get to them unless you backtrack a bit on the trail and cut through the adjacent Biddle Memorial Park.

We'd like to go back and run the stretch from Carmel to downtown Indy, but we'll probably wait for a weekday when we hopefully can avoid some of the traffic on the trail.

Limestone Greenway

Well marked trail that is lined with trees, limestone, and wildflowers. Perfect for running, walking, and biking. It passes a sewage treatment plant, so you might smell poop for a short time. One of my favorite places for a walk.

Vandalia Trail

The two posts to stop motorized vehicles and to slow down u before streets are too close together. They should be staggered like at other Hendricks county parks. I ride a trike and had to pull in mirrors and slow to a crawl. Overall a very nice trail.

Eagle Creek Trail

Park at Mayor's Garden. When you get to 38th Street turn right to stay on the trail. Mile markers are confusing because the Eagle Creek Trail and Eagle Creek Greenway are combined.

Columbus People Trail

I started by the baseball field and it looked like a nice path but the trail ends and you just run thru the residential area.

Monon Trail

More than meets the eye

July, 2021 by hadley6609

I live in Indy and I traverse 6.2 miles of the Monon as my daily commute (on days I ride to work). So this trail is an old acquaintance of mine. This review is intended to give a bigger-picture idea of what the Monon has to offer. The trail is about 27 miles, from the Northern exurb of Sheridan all the way down to 10th street on the near East side of Indianapolis. It is, for the most part, your typical rail trail: straight as an arrow, point A to point B . The trail exists in two counties; Marion county is the urban center of Indianapolis, and Hamilton county, which is the most affluent county in the metro area. The conditions of the trail reflect this reality. The Marion county section was scheduled to begin resurfacing and widening in 2020, but then 2020 happened. The only improvement to be accomplished in the Marion county section over the course of 2020 was the completion of a bicycle/pedestrian bridge over busy 38th street, which was VERY needed. Near the southern terminus, there is currently (July 2021) massive highway construction that has impacted the Monon. One hopes the resurfacing will be done following all of that.

What I want to point out here, though, is that the Monon trail is actually just the most travelled of a network of fine bicycle trails that fan out over the city. The Monon bisects the Fall Creek trail, which travels from the near west side all the way east out to Fort Harrison state part, along fall creek. This is a great trail with long uninterrupted portions of riding. The southern terminus of the Monon is just a short jog over from one of the ends of the downtown Cultural Trail. You can ride the Cultural trail southwest across the downtown to link up with the Wapahani trail, which goes southward out of town along the White River. Another terminus of the cultural trail in Fountain Square is a short ride from the Pleasant Run trail, another creek-following trail that runs east out to the cool old neighborhood of Irvington. The Fall Creek trail now intersects, at its current western terminus, with the Canal Towpath trail, which is my personal favorite trail, though it is maybe the shortest of these. Up in Hamilton county, there are more trails spurring off of the Monon than you can shake a stick at, as they lead into the many suburban neighborhoods up there.

So, if you are looking at the Monon as a possible destination trail, please take time to consider it in its full context. We have a fun little city here. You can ride your bike along a combination of these trails to get to just about any of the fun parts of town. Our little group of bike riding friends regularly put in 30-50 mile rides all over the place, with very little street riding.

Milwaukee Road Transportation Trailway

Rural Indiana at it's best.

July, 2021 by frd1967

We started at the Williams Dam and rode to the end at Bedford, then back. Very shaded and nicely packed trail. Nice scenery and many bridges make it an interesting ride. The trail was in good shape the whole way. It was a great ride.

Franklin Greenway Trail

Bike Friendly Area

July, 2021 by davidtemme5506

We parked at Community Park and went north along Hurricane Creek. It was shaded and very lovely. We went on several connected bike paths not shown such as E. King Street, Eastview Drive and Hurricane road. Wish we had time to go along Young's Creek!
