Cardinal Greenway

Jonesboro thru Marion segment

September, 2023 by msherer1622

I note that the reviews tend to focus on the Richmond end of the trail. My wife and I decided to check out the northwest segment of the Cardinal Greenway beyond the gap north of Muncie—Jonesboro through Marion. The CG ends just west of Marion but flows seemlessly into the Sweetser Switch Trail and then into the Converse Junction for a total of almost of 18 miles each way.

We decided to stay the night in Marion as a home base and found a B&B called Beatrice The Villa run by a charming Italian couple who also have a superb Italian restaraunt on premises. Marion itself has a rustbelt vibe, but we felt safe and were just 4-5 blocks from the trail with entrances on 9th or 10th street. The trail itself is beautiful and wooded in Marion thru Jonesboro—that was our evening trip—south to the Jonesboro Trailhead and back. There was really only one bad crossing at US 35. The rest either have trestles over roads or are lightly traveled. I dinged the trail one start because at 24 years of age, there are quite a few cracks and bumps that need work in Marion. On Day 2 we did Marion to Converse and back, about a 24 mile round trip. That's more varied with both woods and fields (corn & beans) with lots of wildflowers and birds and a couple of covered bridges. It's worth noting that the Converse Junction now extends into Converse to the main district where you can get ice cream, burgers, beer, BBQ, Pizza from various establishments (fewer options on Sunday).

As you may be aware, The Great American Rail Trail uses the Cardinal Greenway for a major chunk of its route through eastern Indiana. According to a local rider, the trail supporters lost a Supreme Court case with farmers over trail, so they are looking at going through Gas City and Upland to get to the southern segment of the CG. From Converse, a tiny but cute Indiana town with a nice BBQ restaurant, plans are to connect up with the Nickleplate Trail over near US 31 about 16 miles west.

Overall we had a really nice time and would consider doing it again. The B&B was a highlight and perfect for easy access to the trail. Trail condition in Marion needs some work and there's a surprising lack of toilet facilities west of Marion and the Sweetser public toilet was locked. Otherwise it's a 5 star ride.

Wolf Creek Trail (OH)

Best kept secret!

September, 2023 by usc.ahollar

My wife and I rode this trail on Labor Day and it was fantastic. We began at the train station in Trotwood and rode to Verona and back - just over 24 miles round trip. The trail has many farms, a few parks and very peaceful. Brookville is charming and is about the half-way point. We only passed a few riders and joggers. It was a great ride!

Cardinal Greenway

Cardinal Greenway is among the very best

August, 2023 by jwmca

Went 38 miles round trip from Tingler Road trail head near Chester to Losantville. Road on a beautiful mid-August weekday, mostly in the shade of the trees lining the route. Asphalt surface was in great condition with no tree root issues. The trail was lightly used that day. During the ride we encountered 24 cyclists (4 on e-bikes), 4 walkers, and 2 squirrels. The lack of wildlife was a little surprising but the trail runs in a narrow strip of trees with cornfields and highways bordering it

Whitewater Canal Trail

Running

August, 2023 by qre8iv77

I run these trails several times a week. They’re good for an easy, long run. Not good if you’re looking for challenging hills. There are exercise opportunities along some parts, areas to rest, and nice views of the river.

Pennsy Trail

map needs updated

August, 2023 by bgserpico

Great trail. My wife and I rode the trail today for the first time. Went to the location that Google Maps called the start but the saw a rider going west, so we found the actual start, about half mile west, and started there. Started down the and, a little over 11 miles later, we were in Hancock on S 400 W. Going east, when you hit 600 W, cross the street and go south. You’ll find the continuation of the trail

Nice trail. Flat and well maintained. Shaded in most spots. The gap on the map between 500W and 600W had been completed.

Stillwater River Bikeway

This is a beautiful place to take a bike ride. I would just be careful if you go after it has rained. The moss on the trail is very slippery.

Whitewater Gorge Trail

Worth checking out

June, 2023 by mlane14_99

The Whitewater Gorge Trail is actually 1.8 miles long. The other reviews accurately describe it with part of it being very smooth and part of it being very rough. However, the scenery is nice and definitely worth a ride. If the trail would be maintained better, it could easily be a five star trail and a fantastic addition to the Cardinal Greenway.
