Big 4 Trail (Lebanon to Colfax)

big four going north

May, 2022 by jtkoehler2

Going from Thorntown to Colfax is now open and is really nice. All paved round trip 11.01 miles. Going south to Lebanon is very rough. The new paving will not start from Sarum Plant road until 2023. The city of Lebanon got the contract to replace the trial. The are starting on the downtown trail in the city first. Very few will use it because not is too close to cars especially you have kids riding.

Paradise Spring Riverwalk Trail

Trail has extended to Lagro

April, 2022 by melanietart

In 2021 the trail was extended east, to Lagro and is now approximately 7 miles if you start at the Smith Street Trailhead, in Wabash. The trail I s relatively flat with one significant hill. There is a small stretch of the trail (near Lagro) that is on Old highway 24 and then moves back to the paved trail. There are a few parking areas along the trail but I don’t think all are marked yet - a couple bigger lots in Wabash and one at the trailhead in Lagro. The trail follows the Wabash river and is pretty peaceful, some areas of trees and some open areas beside fields. If you go in the early spring, before the trees have sprouted leaves, you can usually spot some eagles along the way.

Cardinal Greenway

Outstanding Trail

April, 2022 by utpaduke

Mel and I rode our tandem on 14-15 April. We ride an old Pacific Tandem Fat Tire bike. It is not geared for climbing hills. On Thursday we rode from Tingler Rd trailhead to Richmond and back-15M. On Friday we rode from same trailhead in opposite direction 7.5 miles out, just passed the Williamsburg trailhead and back-15M. The weather was just right cool. We were extremely pleased with the mild terrain grade on both days! The other plus is how far apart the trail sections are from each stop sign. We love this trail! Beautiful farm country USA. Next week On our way back to Raleigh NC, we plan to ride another 2 days. We stayed at the Holiday Inn at Richmond IN. It was very convenient and a great place. We will stay there again next week.👍👌🤓

Pennsy Trail

really nice trail

April, 2022 by reweddle09

Really nice for running. The path is very well kept, not too busy, and felt very safe.

Lafayette Linear Park

I use this as a connector from Beck Ln to Twykiham to get to the bank. It's beautiful covered path. I realize there are houses on one side and the railway on the other but in a wheelchair it's kind if creepy if you're alone.

White River Greenway (Noblesville)

Not for Inline Skating

March, 2022 by rtfbpygthk

I drove out to Noblesville to find a trailhead with parking. The path is definitely not for anyone on skates. The bridges were rickety wood making it impossible to pass over them. I drove further than I could skate.

Paradise Spring Riverwalk Trail

There must be a new section because the trail extends to Lagro. Half a mile of it is on a farm road, but then it continues just before you arrive in Lagro.

February, 2022 by jbrittain9994

Great trail! Great for bike riding, running, walking and with your dog!! I rode 30 miles on the trail one day. Love it.

Big 4 Trail (Whitestown)

Generic Midwest Trail

January, 2022 by 9kxsaiw86t

I would say it’s closer to 3.5 miles if you go to both ends round-trip. I took a bit of a detour into town to hit my 5 miles and there’s not much there as well. If you’re in the area and need a trail it’s a good option but it’s not worth going out of your way for.

White River Greenway (Muncie)

A great ride along the river in Muncie; slightly longer than the map indicates

October, 2021 by jonesandrewd_tl

I rode this trail through Muncie today, as an addition to my Cardinal Greenway ride. Much of this trail runs along the White River, giving some great river views that largely aren't part of the Cardinal Greenway. It also takes you by Minnetrista and some well-architected historic houses, and lets you see more of Muncie than just sticking to the Cardinal Greenway would - not to mention allowing a lot more people in Muncie to access the Cardinal Greenway without driving.

The trail has also been expanded since the TrailLink map was updated. It now goes under the railroad by North Gavin St, and continues along the river and some switchbacks before crossing a bridge known as Bridge #85 south of East Jackson Street, connecting back up with the Cardinal Greenway west of the river. This forms a loop option you can take with the Cardinal Greenway and the White River Greenway in Muncie. Technically the trail is closed under the railroad (perhaps they need to add protection for falling cargo from trains?), but with a very short segment on Bunch Boulevard, you can bypass the closure and get right back on the trail on the opposite side of the tracks.
