Trolley Line Trail (IN)

Well maintained and challenging

July, 2021 by mdcromer

This trail is great for a exercising people who prefer a challenge. The trail is all uphill from Happy Hollow Park to Indian Trail Drive. About half way up, there is a nice side trail (even more challenging) with stairs that ends at N Salisbury St. I would not recommend this trail for anyone with any type of physical restriction.

Nickel Plate Trail

worst trail ever

July, 2021 by djessie413

Eaten alive by deer flies. Road crossings are EXTREMELY dangerous

Nickel Plate Trail

A very nice trail

July, 2021 by tim.patz

This is another example of a 4.5 rating.
This is a very nice paved, flat, level path.
I parked near the bridge that crosses over route 35 and headed north.
The path runs through a rather rural/country area with a good bit of trees/shade.
So as always, if in the area and want to get a couple miles in, give this a run.
It looks like a good trail for an enjoyable and possible long bike ride as well.
Maybe if I'm ever back in the area....

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.

Covington Circle Trail

Some hills; only 3/4 completed

June, 2021 by martinjo47

Some hills & bumps in the trail. Be prepared to turn around & go back or ride up a short steep hill on 3rd St. Turn right on Union, then left on 5th which will take you back to the park.

Nickel Plate Trail

Rode from Peru south to Kokomo and hopped on the Industrial Heritage Trail. Watch the crossways out in the country! Weeds are pretty high and the roads, and traffic is fast.

Panhandle Pathway

We rode this trail south to north. We enjoyed it greatly. Only a slight steady rise (279 ft) in the 22 miles. It was very peaceful and quiet. No very many travelers. All in all a good ride.05302021.

Nickel Plate Trail

Nickel Plate- Indiana farms on display

May, 2021 by bearcat80

I parked at the Nickel Plate marked trail head in Kokomo first rode south to downtown and then north to just south of Peru. The route to downtown Kokomo was well marked and an easy ride. Heading back north you will see many farms and small towns to pass through. My favorite was Bunker Hill. There are some stop signs. No rolling stops! The cross traffic are mostly trucks and travel at high speeds. A wonderful day in the country. Mike

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!
