Cardinal Greenway

Warning: Oak Mites!

August, 2019 by tothedam

On July 30 I rode from Richmond to Economy return. It was a glorious ride! Loved it! Safe and shady most of the way. However, beware the Oak Mites! The next morning I woke up with welts all over my forehead, neck and shoulders. I had even showered immediately after my ride but I had a severe allergic reaction. I am not from this region and had never heard of these critters that can flourish in July and August especially in years when locusts also flourish. But the trail is so great I would do it again but take more precautions.

Great Miami River Trail

Great Trail

July, 2019 by odageneralmail

We use this trail many times a year to get into downtown Dayton. It is scenic and well marked.

In recent years dirt has built up on parts of the trail. PLEASE be careful after rain when the dirt turns to mud. Piqua to Peterson Road and Taylorsville Park to Rip Rap Road Park are sections that can be very muddy.

Franklin Greenway Trail

Nice Trail, But Could Use Better Signage

July, 2019 by stvatandem

My wife and I parked at Blue Heron Park just off Rt-31 and rode eastward. The route is paved all the way, but it pays to be familiar with the route. We made a few wrong turns since there are very few signs directing us where to go. For example, the route goes through a cemetery. When we got to it, there was no indication which road in the cemetery to take. We eventually found the right way, but had to "hunt around" a bit. A map at the trailhead would have been helpful. A big plus is that much of the trail in Franklin is shaded. It's a bit more "open" when you travel farther east.

Shaker Trace Trail

Nice Trail - Can Be Hot

June, 2019 by bryan.pitts

Rode this trail in June of 2019. It is a very nice, well-maintained trail. It mostly runs through scenic open meadows. There are a couple of underpasses with a rippling stream if you enjoy stopping and exploring areas like that.

My only caution is that, on a sunny summer day, this turns into a very hot ride, as there is little to no shade for the majority of the trail.

Monon Trail

A great, urban, suburbs and rural trail

June, 2019 by marley69

I have done about 75 trails in 28 states including the Minuteman in Boston, the Little Miami in Cincy, Riverfront in St. Louis and several trails in Chicago, etc and this trail is simply the best urban trail I have ever ridden or heard about. 26 miles with scenery from Indy light industrial to Broad Ripple hipster to Carmel upscale ( maybe the best five miles of the trail) to Hamilton county farm country, through two major parks and Carmel's truly unique downtown, there is something for everyone. But what stands out are the amenities along the trail, from restrooms, water stations and numerous places scattered in many locations to get something to eat or drink, most catering to the bicycle crowd. If you are a bicycle tourist, this is a must ride trail.

Monon Trail

They thought of everything!

May, 2019 by llhart802

Beautiful trail - plenty of access points. We were impressed by how well thought out the trails extras were. Porch swings, super clean bathrooms, even a bike repair station. There are quite a few required stops for busy roads but 9 out of 10 times the traffic stops for you.

Central Canal Towpath

Decent trail in most areas

May, 2019 by kgremosindy

We ride this trail quite often. The portion which passes the Art Museum and Butler are very nice. Once you get closer to Broadripple, the trail starts to get narrow and crosses many busy intersections. The really narrow section is the portion right before Broadripple where it is barely wide enough for a bike. Beware if there is someone coming towards you. Portions of the trail are currently closed due to construction of a flood wall. You have to ride the road from the Rocky Ripple area towards 56th and Illinois. Don't ride this trail after a rain unless you want to be covered in limestone grit and muck.

White River Wapahani Trail

Some good, some bad, best view of downtown Indy.

January, 2019 by rockafella82

Without a doubt, this trail is the location of some of the most scenic vantages of the Indianapolis skyline. From the Zoo at Washington to the bridge at 10 St is the most well kept portion of the trail. South of the Zoo at Washington, things can get sketchy real quick due to the White River basin and some blind turns causing hazard. Northbound @ 10th, you either hang a left over the bridge and loop back South (nice loop) or, you head right on the sidewalk in front of Eskinazi. This portion is unmarked and not intuitive, because the trail actually picks up again North of 10th on a suspension bridge just before the light at St Margaret’s drive. Go left (west) at the end of the bridge, (the right leg ends quickly at Indiana) and there is.a paved trail that continues north. Once you hit 16th, this path is adequately titled t”the nutcracker because it is very uneven all the way to where it connects to the towpath @

Pennsy Trail

Great spot(s). Wish they connected.

January, 2019 by rockafella82

I have ridden the entire Pennsey, with the Eastern most Portion being the best with signage, mileage and sights. Perhaps someday the segments will be connected, but at least we have the opportunity to ride the preserved miles.

Pleasant Run Trail

Garfield Park only

January, 2019 by rockafella82

I have been going to Garfield park for years with my kids cuz there are always others for them to play with here. This is the Southern end of the Pleasant run trail. It is a little older and not what it once was but still a nice urban nature park atmosphere most days with a view of the downtown skyline. Now, once you leave the park going north, the “trail” is not only covered in piles of dirt, debris, and broken glass, but there is NO lighting for early morning or evening exercise which really contributes to the very sketchy and unsafe feeling of this decayed area by the creek. My recommendation, leave the (UN)Pleasant run trail off your list of places to see in Indy.

Great Miami River Trail

Great Trail

December, 2018 by pezco63

I’ve ridden the two bottom sections of this trail, Fairfield/Hamilton and Trenton/Middletown. The trail is well paved and good for easy riding. It will be nice once or if they connect the two bottom sections to the main section in Franklin, Oh. So you can ride the whole trail without getting on the road.

Monon Trail

It now ends in Sheridan Indiana about 10 miles north of Westfield. All paved. Great scenery. Trail head in Sheridan is across from the American Legion.
