Cardinal Greenway Trail, Richmond, IN to Losantville, IN

May, 2020 by rtool

My first time in this trail. Fully enjoyed it. Well taken care of with easy access at many places along the trail. Indiana drivers were very accommodating at intersections. Now I want to ride another section of this trail.

Stillwater River Bikeway

Dayton's Memorial Day Tornado Effected This Trail

November, 2019 by orangedoug

I rode the two segments of the Stillwater River Bikeway back in July of this year, but forgot to review here at TrailLink.

I rode this trail a month and a half after a devastating Category F4 tornado tore through the area. Before my trip to Dayton, I just couldn't believe that I kept reading online that the trail was still closed. However, when I rode the southern section of the trail the destruction of what must of been a beautiful tree lined river pathway became more and more evident as I traveled north from Island MetroPark. It will take decades for the trees to grow back to the same conditions you see along the northern section of the trail. The trail it self is in good shape but becomes somewhat rough as the trail shares the park road north of the Wegerzyn Center. Here the road is marked with a number of potholes and rough patches.

In contrast, the northern section of the Stillwater River Greenway in Englewood MetroPark was not affected by the Memorial Day storms. The trail here is heavily shaded but has an excellent surface. There is one significant climb if you want to travel south of the of Englewood Dam but it is eased by one switch back in order to pass by the dam's spillway. There are several beautiful lakes both above and below the dam. One slightly disturbing aspect of the trail in Englewood Park is that in some areas of the park you have to share the single lane roadway with cars. Fortunately, for a Saturday I didn’t feel that the park was particularly busy.

It saddens me to think of how the weather has changed the face of the southern portion of the trail. Here's hoping that the damage caused by the Memorial Day tornado might spark the desire to connect the two sections in this trail. It might now be easier to complete the gap between the two sections of trail. First of all, the downed trees will have to be removed because as the piles of dead trees dry out they will become more and more of a fire hazard. Because these trees are such a jumbled and tangled mess, heavy equipment will need to be called in to remove the debris. This heavy equipment will create pathways for the equipment to move around in the debris field and perhaps these pathways can be turned into a good portion of the missing section of trail. Only time will tell.

Fun...but

October, 2019 by amerlo2mmm

Most of the trail is nice with the beauty of nature, flat pavement, fun tunnels and bridges. All that is nice for the family. But it would be better if it were all connected without having to go on the road. That part scared my 9 year old. Otherwise, It was nice to get ice cream in Aurora and there’s a strongs pizza right by the lawrenceburg trailhead. And parking is free and plentiful.

Stillwater River Bikeway

Great Ride !

September, 2019 by lee.mckarns

My wife and I took up cycling earlier this year and have logged over 100 miles on the area trails. The northern segment of the Stillwater River Trail is one of our favorites. The uphill grade by the Englewood Dam spillway can be tough (especially on a hot day) but the rewards can be worth it. We often see several American Bald Eagles, Blue Heron, Osprey, and a myriad of other birds fishing on the lake at the Englewood MetroPark until the lake dries up in late August. also, the downhill grade from the spillway to Bower’s Lake is the best and longest downhill coast in the area. It’s personally my favorite stretch of trail in the area.

Stillwater River Bikeway

A Great Ride

September, 2019 by lee.mckarns

My wife and I are residents of the Englewood community and just took up cycling this year. We have ridden many trails in Dayton and the northern segment of the Stillwater Trail is fortunately one of our favorites. The climb up the spillway at the dam (US Route 40) is one of the hardest uphill grades of the nearly 100 miles of local trails we’ve ridden, but very doable on a geared bike. The effort is well worth it as you may get to see several Enhlewood MetroPark until the lake dries up in August American Bald Eagles fishing on the lake at tEnglewood MetroPark

Tecumseh Trail Multi-use Pathway

thoroughly enjoyed!

September, 2019 by suejustice1

Nice bike path with historical significance. My husband & I enjoyed the quiet path through beautiful fields- some sections tree-lined others on the road but overall the whole path was very enjoyable. We did not encounter one other cyclist upon the path, so that was actually enjoyable to have it to ourselves. ¿¿

Surprized!

September, 2019 by yellowleaf

Nice trail, the small section I was able to ride today (thus 4 stars) - but sadly missing alerts that it's currently mostly closed due to roadwork!! (Thus only 4 stars).

Franklin Greenway Trail

Nice Trail

August, 2019 by jonasstevens

This trail is nice. However, it could use better signage. It’s easy to take a wrong turn and end up turned around. It’s also very narrow in a few areas making it hard to pass others. I’m not sure why but in 4-5 areas colored chalk covers the trail making it a mess if you’re not careful to avoid it.
