Monon Trail

Great urban trail

June, 2018 by kgremosindy

We rode the trail from down-town Indianapolis north to Westfield. You have to piece together the path from the intersection with Midland Trace up to the soccer fields (it is basically an oversized sidewalk that follows the roadway). We jumped on lightly traveled country roads at the soccer fields and picked up the trail into Sheridan. The portion into Sheridan was lovely and shaded. Can't wait for them to finish the portion that connects the two sections. It will be a great ride.

146th Street Trail

Ugh

June, 2018 by kgremosindy

Follows a very busy road and crosses many crossroads and highway entrances. Just stay on the Monon unless you need to get to a store that is off 146th.

Eagle Creek Trail

Incomplete trail.

June, 2018 by kgremosindy

Tried to take the southern section of the trail north from Raymond Street. The path is incomplete at it's southern end with no clear marking of where the trail picks up after it ends at street intersections. Got about a mile up the trail and a small bridge was blocked with snow fence and a sign saying the trail was closed for cleanup. Nobody in sight, the fence was broken down in areas so it has been up at least a few days if not longer. Very disappointed as the area we rode on was very nice and quiet. It will be a while before I attempt this trail again as it was just not worth the hassle.

White River Wapahani Trail

An Epic Disappointment

June, 2018 by pedalfree

When I travel to Indianapolis on business, I typically ride this trail because it's easy to access from downtown hotels. This is my third time riding it and it seems to get worse each time I make the effort.

Today, the Washington Street Bridge was closed due to some zoo event so the part of the trail south of downtown was inaccessible. No problem, I thought. I'd just go north and catch the canal towpath at 30th Street and ride to Broad Ripple. Unfortunately, the trail was also closed north of 30th Street due to some sort of public works project.

In between, there are terrible road crossings at 10th and 16th. When I say terrible, I mean they are among the worst urban road crossings I've ever seen. There's nothing at all intuitive about the crossing at 10th. You have to know where to pick up the trail on the other side, and it requires riding along the road on a narrow, hemmed in path. It's awful. 16th is downright dangerous as traffic approaching from the west is basically blind to the trail. There's a flashing light warning motorists here, but few slow down. Exercise extreme caution crossing 16th Street.

There are some bright spots. The suspension bridge over Fall Creek is nice as is the catwalk just to the south of old Bush Stadium. The newer section south of the zoo is nice when the river is low, but when it floods it takes the city awhile to remove debris. The short cycletrack on 30th connecting to the canal towpath would also be nice but the city puts warning signs right in the bike lanes and the debris on the road here will cut a tire if you're not careful.

So I'm sorry, but I cannot recommend this trail. It has potential, but it is simply not enough to throw down some asphalt and stencil some bicycles on the pavement. What makes a trail great is the thought that goes into the design and the day to day execution. This trail is a long way from reaching its potential. Sorry, Indy.

Cardinal Greenway

Enjoyable, easy trail.

June, 2018 by Jeffstov

Today, for National Trail Day, I rode the Cardinal Trail from the D street Trail head north to the Williamsburg Trail head. About 23 miles round trip. The trail is paved, easy riding with a slight upgrade going north for the first few miles. Not much. but enough that you can tell the difference on he return. Trail was in good shape with a few little bumps from cracks in the asphalt swelling and in one place a small tree across the trail from a recent storm. There are a fair number of whistle posts still in place, as well as some mile markers, a few concrete bases from signals and lots of ties along the route. A couple nice bridges too.

Little Turtle Waterway Trail

Trail extension

March, 2018 by kevinhow

This was the second time on this trail. The first time it did indeed end at 12th Street. This time (3/3/18), the trail kept going...my wife and I went another 15 minutes or so before turning back (lunch at the nearby China Lane - yum!), so didn't get to the end. I'm assuming it has been extended to the 18th street mark at least. Next time we'll find out for sure...

Nickel Plate Trail

Fun trail

January, 2018 by joneszmusicman

I rode this trail in July of 2017. I went from Rochester to Kokomo, got food, and rode back up to my car in Rochester.

Surface - all asphalt, and in good condition when I rode it. Did it on a road bike with 23mm tires and had no issues - held a great pace and didn't get shook up.

Scenery - Relaxing, but nothing to write home about for the most part. Corn Belt views. However, there are some cool river crossings, and the descents into Peru from either direction were scenic and interesting.

Amenities - This trail passes through a good amount of towns. I never felt worried about my water access.

Notes:
- Biking to food on the Kokomo end is a bit of a haul. Not as bad in Rochester. But, there was a Hardee's there, so it was 100% worth it.
- Loved the southbound climb out of Peru. Stream crossings, curves, the bridge over the Wabash...highlight section of the ride.
- There's a road crossing every mile for most of the ride. Not busy roads, but it can be a bit annoying.

Nickel Plate Trail

A true gem

October, 2017 by delmont425

We rode our tandem with another couple on singles today from Kokomo to Rochester and back. What a great experience! This is an outstanding trail with lots to offer in terms of scenery, solitude, very good pavement, and plenty of open space. It is also a very well-maintained trail--a storm came through last night with high winds, resulting in a few downed limbs and many walnuts strewn on the pavement. By the time we passed back through these areas late in the afternoon, someone had taken care of almost all of it! There was a tree across the trail at one point; another trail user told us she had contacted someone about getting it takne care of; that was around 10:30 and by the time we passed by on our way back south you'd have never known the tree was ever there. You can tell people care about this trail and it's one we very highly recommend!

Cardinal Greenway

great well used trail

October, 2017 by max.garrett

This trail I thought might be sketchy in quality and safety, but I was pleasantly surprised and I thought (at least in the muncie area) it was safe and well maintained. I would not hesitate to ride this again. Now I am not an avid road cyclist, but compared to other trails I've seen this one is superb. Cant wait to ride this again.

Panhandle Pathway

The Panhandle Trail aka The Flat Forty.

September, 2017 by jwelhwel

When people ask me if I've ridden the "Hilly Hundred" the well known Brown County IN ride I respond: "No but I've done the 'Flat Forty' in Northern Indiana.

The Panhandle Trail runs from Logansport IN to Winamac about 22 miles. I like to start in Royal Center which is about half way between the two trail ends. I usually bike down to Logansport, up to Winamac and back to Royal Center, that makes if about a forty mile ride.

It's about as flat a trail as you'll find with a slight incline going North most noticeable coming out of Logansport (Kenneth) which is why I like to do that portion first. (Those under 60 won't even notice the incline).

There is now a nice parking area at the Logan end with a well kept porta-potty. The Royal Center Marathon station and store is a good half way stop for water, treats and facilities. Casey's General Store (near the Winamac trail head) has clean rest rooms and everything you need for your ride. There's a great Mexican Restaurant at the trail head as well.

The Winamac end of the trail has been extended about 2 miles which takes you to the old train station which is beautifully done and is in walking distance to downtown.

A great ride especially if you want to get a taste of No Indiana; it's mile after mile of soybeans, corn fields and grain silos. Local color stops in Star City, Royal Center and Winamac gives you a good feel for Northern Indiana. The most scenic portion of the ride is crossing the Tippecanoe river near the Winamac trailhead.

It's a well maintained trail and is a great ride if you want a casual ride or if you're a serious biker and just want to let it rip for about 20 miles or so.

B&O Trail

Great Trail

September, 2017 by artsyjo

We rode this yesterday for the first time. Beautiful...lots of shade, nice scenery, well maintained. It is now almost completed to 6 miles, so you can make a good 12 mile ride. They have almost completed the two segments. We walked our biked across the road that divided the two halves, over some gravel, but just a very short distance. The only down side is that there are no restrooms, only 2 benches for a rest stop in Brownsburg, and the parking at the trail head in Brownsburg only accommodates a few cars. But it was a beautiful experience...so many trees, quiet, not too crowded, you cross over a small river and creek. Overall a very good ride.

Nickel Plate Trail

Gorgeous ride on a cool fall day

September, 2017 by kuffner

Rode 34 miles of the trail this weekend. Weather was cool with only a slight breeze. We started in Rochester and rode to Denver and back on Saturday. The trail gets prettier as you ride south. If you have limited time or energy start at Peru and ride south from there. Entire trail is clean paved and well maintained with benches about every 5 miles or so. Limited restrooms but plenty of remote areas for emergency use.
