Trail was well marked and was not crowded. We have done the Rentschler Woods to Fairfield and it can be very crowded. Not particularly scenic but a good ride.

Pennsy Trail

Mary Anne Kuhn

March, 2021 by maryanne_kuhn

I love the trail! I think whoever is in charge of building it did an excellent job. I wanted to point out that there is a tent set up and clearly someone is living along the trail between German church and mitthoeffer. There are also Walmart carts back there

Pogues Run Trail

Easy trail

March, 2021 by sempremudando

Fairly easy trail to walk. It’s mostly gravel and some of it was washed out with recent rains. Watch out for the geese!

Pennsy Trail

Update to the map needed

March, 2021 by hadley6609

We rode the Pennsy from Irvington to Mount Comfort Rd on 3/13/2021. I'm glad to report that the trail has been completed along that entire stretch, which fills in one of the gaps presently reflected on the trail map.

As of this spring, the trail is in fantastic shape: brand new blacktop, wide, brush cut back several feet on either side. This is brand new trail in an area that was formerly a desolate abandoned railroad track running through a lower-income/industrial area, so there is a desperate need for a clean up along the new portions. Garbage galore is in sight everywhere in the early spring before the leaves come out. The trail itself, though, is immaculate. The Pennsy is straight as an arrow. However, In Cumberland, the Pennsy intersects with the Buck Creek Trail which goes north for about 3 miles following the creek. If you are wanting to add some sweeping turns to your ride, this is a very pretty side-trip.

Be forewarned that as of the date of this review there are no restroom facilities on this trail. It parallels US 40, so there are some big-box stores & gas stations within reach if you look for them, but no on-trail establishments between Irvington and Greenfield.

Bicyclists who enjoy a cold beer have a great destination on this trail. The Black Acre Brewery beer garden is just off the trail very near the western terminus in Irvington. I would also encourage those who are not familiar with the area to take a ride around Irvington if you have the time. The streets are winding and the homes are mostly old and stately. If you find yourself in need of a bike shop, Irvington also has Indy Cycle Specialists just east of the intersection of Audubon Rd and Washington St (US 40). This is an excellent bike shop, worth a visit even if you aren't in need of a new tube or whatever.

Cardinal Greenway

Ride info

October, 2020 by dblunk33

Great trail to ride , the hog farm near Williamsburg smells terrible and at least 3 times big Rottweiler dogs have chased us and nearly wrecked us at the hog farm entrance. Very scary and dangerous. We ride 5 days a week and don’t see them everyday but potentially a terrible situation. Other than that a great ride and well maintained.

Heritage Trail of Madison

Local treasure, 5 STARS!!!

October, 2020 by nina.a.campbell.5

We love our Heritage Trail in Madison! Bob Greene does am excellent job keeping it up too! It's one of a few paths that will take you from the hilltop to historic downtown, one of the longest stretches of historic buildings in the US. It is super steep and hard to get back up, but if you're doing some cardio training, it's great. Going up the trail there are about 4 benches to rest on. I can usually get the kids up it using those. It has so many different and fun ways to hike it. You can continue following the railway tracks and go along the river all the way to the Madison-Milton Bridge and back again. You can go down it, then head up the old tracks back to the hilltop or you can also go down it, then head west and hook up with Clifty Falls SP. So many options!

Fall Creek Trail (IN)

A beautiful urban trail

October, 2020 by marley69

This trail has been upgraded and is a wonderful trail. ( See my note below why I did not give it 5 stars). The trail begins at Meridian Street and Fall Creek and goes all the way to Benjamin Harrison state park in NW Indy, a distance of about 9 1/2 miles. The trail now crosses 38th street at the stoplight and a new section takes it along Fall Creek for a short way before crossing over a bridge to take it to the old trail section. New trail sections have been laid out with fresh asphalt just east of Keystone and are a major improvement along Fall Creek to 56th street. There it picks up the old section which is still in excellent condition and continues along the Fall Creek. A new section goes under Shadeland to continue on to Fort Ben. From 38th Street to Fort Ben there are no stops as all crossings go under the roadways. At Ft. Ben there is a 4 mile loop that can add to the mileage with a 100-150 foot hill. You are supposed to pay a $2 fee to enter Ft. Ben by bike, but there is no place to pay on this end. The trail is in a beautiful setting, great surface and very well done. Mileage markers are every 1/4 mile. While there are several trailheads, I only saw one port a potty just north of 38th street and that would be my only criticism. I reserve 5 star ratings for destinations trails like the Katy trail, GAP, Mickelsen, etc. . While the connecting Monon trail has some cool Indy history, and goes to Carmel, etc; for a joyous riding experience in a beautiful setting, this trail absolutely should not be overlooked. Congrats to the Indy Park department because this one is a gem.
