This was a very good trail with a paved surface in great condition with almost no bumps, etc. Also a very straight and level trail with almost no hills. My 44 mile ride was with 20+ mph cross wind, cold temperature, and rain but still enjoyable. I did not take time to visit the small towns but could have easily done so and it looked like there were many interesting things to do. You should be very cautious with the road crossings. If you are used to racing across it is almost impossible to see in each direction at busy road crossings. Worth the 1 1/2 hour drive for me to get there!
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!
My wife and I ride this trail a lot. (age 63 and 65)we have one here in Crawfordsville but it is too short.
We have ridden the whole trail Thorntown to Lebanon and back 3 times in the last month. The sections around the cities and Hazelrigg are smooth. the rest is bumpy. Lebanon has filed for a grant from the state and wants to take over pave and maintain the trail from Lebanon to Surem Plant rd (Thorntown). (We started a bike riding group from church we wanted to introduce others to the trail and bike riding.)
Going north out of Thorntown the trail is 8/10 of a mile and then ends at Sugar Creek. I saw where Colfax got some grant money to connect to the trail south, we will see how long that takes. I'd give it a 5 star rate if it was paved smooth.
as of last year the break in the map shown is now connected. There is also a parking lot next to the animal shelter which is where you can get on the trail. (that is the connection point) You do not have to go the west end anymore to get on it. It is all paved. My biggest complaint is that it still does not connect to downtown trail head park. which would solve the other problem, which is , it is too short.
We got on the trail at Coatsville. That was closer from Crawfordsville for us. There is about a 4 mile paved portion of the trail from 1 mile west of Coatsville and east to Amo. The rest is loose gravel. Not so good to ride on. We rode on it for 2 miles and turned back. For us we will not be riding this trail again. it is too long to travel to from Crawfordsville especially with a gravel trail. Neat looking old railroad station in AMO.
We started off on the south side. I recommend this because the trail has slight up hill run through out the length, until you get back into town. There is a hill down and up just before the High school and level off after you get into the park. In reverse it is a nice slight downhill run once you get about 2 miles into the ride. very friendly people along the way.
We rode the B&O for the first time. I enjoyed it. My wife didn't like all the road crossings. She does not like to ride her bike around any traffic. That's why we do trails. Any way The trail is very well maintained 12.3 miles was the total round trip. I do like all the lights for crossing the roads We did not try the Regan trail. (Getting tired.) My only negative is there was no place to park. We parked in the church lot across the street. The person who told us about the trail said we could. (he goes to that church)
Rode a quick 26 miler out n back from Richmond. Well kept and well marked trail.
This is a nice railtrail mostly through farm lands in the country land of Indiana! Make sure to pack lots of water as someone else said. We took water and still didn’t have enough! Thankfully we came upon one of the trailheads that had water. My husband was not happy with the water quality though ¿¿
Started off on this trail at the Covington city park which has brand new playgrounds, splash park, and restrooms. You could easily let kids play here for a couple hrs. The trail is paved and smooth. It’s almost a complete loop around town. Just a short jaunt down quiet neighborhoods will complete the loop. You won’t be disappointed with the this trail.
I rode 8 miles on this trail on a Saturday with my boyfriend and our 12 year old. We parked at the pool in Forest Park (they let us use the restrooms without question). We rode east then north first until that section ends at the river. And I do mean at the river. Break check - don't ride in! By far the nicest section. Almost total shade on the north/south section. Nice to be along the river. The trail is not very wide and is VERY winding. Most people we encountered were walking and didn't seem to be used to coming across bicycles so stay alert. We then went south through Forest Park. Very nicely landscaped. It connects to the Noblesville Riverwalk (or something like that) just south of the park and across the river. We were excited to explore that upon coming across it, but a minute in encountered a complete closure for construction so that was disappointing. We then went back though the park and took the spur that goes northwest out of the park. Nice trail, but once it turned into riding along a regular street in direct sun on a very hot day we turned around. Overall, decent trail. Too bad it's not a lot longer.
We set out from Greencastle and the gravel surface there is sound but the bike path isn't on the railroad bed so it winds a bit with small ups and downs. Not for skinny tires! But it was lovely and ride-able on our mid-tire bikes. The section from Coatesville to Amo was asphalt that was smooth as glass. What a lovely treat! The whole distance was partly tree covered so the sun didn't bake us, but enough open places to enjoy the fields and flowers.
