Big 4 Trail (Lebanon to Thorntown)

nice trail but definately bumpy

July, 2021 by andrea_ellingwood

Beautiful scenery! Peaceful & Quiet. The newer paved sections are awesome! It definately needs some attention to areas that are older. Even the gravely portions aren’t as bumpy as the older paved sections. Great afternoon ride. The parking area in Lebanon is well marked and even has tools if necessary.

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.

Rural Indiana at it's best.

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!

Unpaved however lots of wildlife can be seen. Had to come to Lewisville to get on because couldn’t find access pint in raysville. Insects are out so if you go bring bud spray. Over all nice morning bike ride

Walked part of the trail today and was impressed! Clean, paved & well marked. I was surprised to see mile markers. Both families and individuals were walking, running and bike riding enjoying the day.

Monon Trail

Monon... an urban trail

May, 2021 by bearcat80

Monon is a great urban trail. I recently rode it from Westfield to 10th St. Its well marked and well paved. But it has many stops. All are well marked but be alert. If you are riding for pace you will be disappointed. Its very picturesque. It travels through upscale Carmel and artsy Broad Ripple. Very cool train murals at lower end of the trail. Enjoyed it!

Fall Creek Trail (IN)

Fall Creek ( Cathedral High School)

May, 2021 by alicianina

Did 13.1 miles round trip, and didn’t finished the trail. Clean, and new asphalt. Lots of shade, bathrooms re the gas station and one place to rent bikes along the trail. A lot of nature and river to the side. The only thing I found bad was, couple of “homeless tent “ but nothing to be concerned. I give a 5 stars trail.

April, 2021 by jrbsgroup

The Monon trail offers everything you can ask for. It is the best trail that I have been on.

Vandalia Trail

Sweet Ride

April, 2021 by searl727

My first Rails to Trails ride. Beautiful landscape, nice packed gravel bed and, later near Amo, paved. Not a soul around. Some open areas where breeze was strong but mostly typical Indiana farmlands and expected wildlife. Birds aplenty.
