Little Turtle Waterway Trail

Trail extension

March, 2018 by kevinhow

This was the second time on this trail. The first time it did indeed end at 12th Street. This time (3/3/18), the trail kept going...my wife and I went another 15 minutes or so before turning back (lunch at the nearby China Lane - yum!), so didn't get to the end. I'm assuming it has been extended to the 18th street mark at least. Next time we'll find out for sure...

Nickel Plate Trail

Fun trail

January, 2018 by joneszmusicman

I rode this trail in July of 2017. I went from Rochester to Kokomo, got food, and rode back up to my car in Rochester.

Surface - all asphalt, and in good condition when I rode it. Did it on a road bike with 23mm tires and had no issues - held a great pace and didn't get shook up.

Scenery - Relaxing, but nothing to write home about for the most part. Corn Belt views. However, there are some cool river crossings, and the descents into Peru from either direction were scenic and interesting.

Amenities - This trail passes through a good amount of towns. I never felt worried about my water access.

Notes:
- Biking to food on the Kokomo end is a bit of a haul. Not as bad in Rochester. But, there was a Hardee's there, so it was 100% worth it.
- Loved the southbound climb out of Peru. Stream crossings, curves, the bridge over the Wabash...highlight section of the ride.
- There's a road crossing every mile for most of the ride. Not busy roads, but it can be a bit annoying.

Nickel Plate Trail

A true gem

October, 2017 by delmont425

We rode our tandem with another couple on singles today from Kokomo to Rochester and back. What a great experience! This is an outstanding trail with lots to offer in terms of scenery, solitude, very good pavement, and plenty of open space. It is also a very well-maintained trail--a storm came through last night with high winds, resulting in a few downed limbs and many walnuts strewn on the pavement. By the time we passed back through these areas late in the afternoon, someone had taken care of almost all of it! There was a tree across the trail at one point; another trail user told us she had contacted someone about getting it takne care of; that was around 10:30 and by the time we passed by on our way back south you'd have never known the tree was ever there. You can tell people care about this trail and it's one we very highly recommend!

Panhandle Pathway

The Panhandle Trail aka The Flat Forty.

September, 2017 by jwelhwel

When people ask me if I've ridden the "Hilly Hundred" the well known Brown County IN ride I respond: "No but I've done the 'Flat Forty' in Northern Indiana.

The Panhandle Trail runs from Logansport IN to Winamac about 22 miles. I like to start in Royal Center which is about half way between the two trail ends. I usually bike down to Logansport, up to Winamac and back to Royal Center, that makes if about a forty mile ride.

It's about as flat a trail as you'll find with a slight incline going North most noticeable coming out of Logansport (Kenneth) which is why I like to do that portion first. (Those under 60 won't even notice the incline).

There is now a nice parking area at the Logan end with a well kept porta-potty. The Royal Center Marathon station and store is a good half way stop for water, treats and facilities. Casey's General Store (near the Winamac trail head) has clean rest rooms and everything you need for your ride. There's a great Mexican Restaurant at the trail head as well.

The Winamac end of the trail has been extended about 2 miles which takes you to the old train station which is beautifully done and is in walking distance to downtown.

A great ride especially if you want to get a taste of No Indiana; it's mile after mile of soybeans, corn fields and grain silos. Local color stops in Star City, Royal Center and Winamac gives you a good feel for Northern Indiana. The most scenic portion of the ride is crossing the Tippecanoe river near the Winamac trailhead.

It's a well maintained trail and is a great ride if you want a casual ride or if you're a serious biker and just want to let it rip for about 20 miles or so.

B&O Trail

Great Trail

September, 2017 by artsyjo

We rode this yesterday for the first time. Beautiful...lots of shade, nice scenery, well maintained. It is now almost completed to 6 miles, so you can make a good 12 mile ride. They have almost completed the two segments. We walked our biked across the road that divided the two halves, over some gravel, but just a very short distance. The only down side is that there are no restrooms, only 2 benches for a rest stop in Brownsburg, and the parking at the trail head in Brownsburg only accommodates a few cars. But it was a beautiful experience...so many trees, quiet, not too crowded, you cross over a small river and creek. Overall a very good ride.

Nickel Plate Trail

Gorgeous ride on a cool fall day

September, 2017 by kuffner

Rode 34 miles of the trail this weekend. Weather was cool with only a slight breeze. We started in Rochester and rode to Denver and back on Saturday. The trail gets prettier as you ride south. If you have limited time or energy start at Peru and ride south from there. Entire trail is clean paved and well maintained with benches about every 5 miles or so. Limited restrooms but plenty of remote areas for emergency use.

Delphi Historic Trails

Disappointing

September, 2017 by pepley7

First of all at the present time September 4, 2017, route 18 from I-65 toward Delphi is closed. Our GPS kept trying to take us that way, and no matter what side street we tried when we came back to route 18 it was closed. So find an alternate route, before you head out. When we got into Delphi we went to Canal Park. There are some gravels paths that run along both sides of the canal. When we took a trail into town, there was absolutely no signage telling us where to find another bike trail, path, route or anything. We only managed to clock around 4 miles altogether. And about two miles of that was on the streets of Delphi. There are some nice historical houses and building to see along the way, so that was one positive thing. We were looking for a nice continuous trail, and that is not what we found here. We went into Lafayette instead.

Big 4 Trail (Lebanon to Thorntown)

nice trail

September, 2017 by jtkoehler2

couldn't get to the trail head in thorntown the road was closed. So we got on off pearl st and franklin south of SR 47. the trail to start was paved. As soon as we got out of thorntown, the pavement was a little rough. As we headed south east it varied from a little rough to some lose gravel. The lose gravel ended about a 1/2 mile north of Hazelrigg rd. 300 n. it was new smooth pavement. We rode south about another mile and turned around. We ran across another rider who said the new pavement goes for a way the it was back to what was north of Hazelrigg. ( not as rough) He said when you get nearer to Lebanon it goes back to smooth pavement. We are working up the 20 mile round trip Thorntown to Lebanon. We did half today ( hazelrigg). (10 miles) We are both in our 60's and having ridden much over the past 15 years.

Panhandle Pathway

Confusing

August, 2017 by jdlanier

tried to find the southern terminus by following the map directions. Ended on a private road with no sign of the trail. Because I grew up in that area I was able to find the trail access point at CR 50N, not 50S like in the map. May confuse those counting on trail access from Berry Lane; there is none.

Monon Trail

Rode my bike on trail

July, 2017 by derek.chapel

I rode from downtown Indy to Westfield. There were water stations and bathrooms all along the trail and a lot of shade on the trail from all the trees next too the trail.

Panhandle Pathway

Enjoyable Ride

July, 2017 by emmis

Another outstanding trail in north central Indiana for road biking - be aware of a few gravel road crossings and enjoy the scenery from Kenneth to Winamac and back or the other way around. Royal Center and Star City provide strategic respite and services.

Nickel Plate Trail

The whole trail is a great ride

July, 2017 by emmis

The whole trail is a great ride and the communities along the route are full of friendly people and accommodating services. What a jewel of a rail-trail.
