Big 4 Trail (Whitestown)

July 5 Whitestown to Zionsville

July, 2024 by kevin.gruneisen

Rode the trail from Whitestown to Zionsville today. Got a little wet but it’s great that the trail has been extended to connect the two cities. The round trip was about 14 miles with very little elevation change. I would say about 75% is covered with shade. The complete path is asphalt. There is no parking at the Whitestown trail head. See parking info in the trail details for the parking area, which is right on the trail. There is a good brewery in Whitestown, Moontown Brewery for a post ride beverage. We skipped that part today as we were pretty soaked from the afternoon rain. Enjoy.

Big 4 Trail (Lebanon to Colfax)

June 30 - Thorntown to Colfax

July, 2024 by kevin.gruneisen

Rode the Big 4, parking at Thorntown, riding to Colfax and back. The ride was roughly 6 miles one way with limited elevation. The asphalt path is good, a little bumpy out of Thorntown but smooths out for a nice ride. The path was cluttered with vegetation following the storms the day before. This part of the path is well covered providing good shade and wind block. Be sure to notice the birdhouses tucked into the trees as you near Colfax. Enjoy.

Nice Solitary Ride!

June, 2024 by gregmclochlin

I’m an EBiker, and LOVE the solitude! Smooth, paved trail with very short paths invaded by fairly low tree roots. I stopped for lunch at STOOKLEYS which I HIGHLY recommend! Yum! I started in Colfax, at the trail end, and went almost to Lebanon, then turned back, (out and back.) BEAUTIFUL DAY!!

This is such a nice trail. Part of it is nice and secluded while other parts are next to the road. It's definitely worth riding.

Nickel Plate Trail

We love riding both sections of the Nickle Plate trail. However the section in the middle though the town of Peru isn't the most enjoyable. It's not really well marked.

2024 - we live 1 mile from the trail and can get to it pretty easy. The ride is great. All asphalt and in great shape. Several main roads have to be crossed but all have signal lights to help. Tilden is no longer the end of the trail. There is another ~ 3 miles of new asphalt west of Tilden. A new parking lot was added at 300/900. Enjoy. It’s or go to for weekly rides.

Big 4 Trail (Lebanon to Colfax)

pretty nice trail

June, 2024 by giannopolis

Started at Colfax park and rode through Thorntown to Lebanon. After a break, rode back to starting point. Right at 30mi roundtrip. Sections of trail inside town limits were very bumpy from roots. Probably older original trail sections. Rural sections newer and smooth.

Delphi Historic Trails

disappointed

May, 2024 by pixiericci

Only one very small part paved. Was scenic but too many dead ends, turnarounds and maps not very good

Big 4 Trail (Lebanon to Colfax)

It’s not bad

May, 2024 by jawinner

As with most rail trails, this one has tons of invasives. Seems like it was in need of mowing and pruning the sides. It’s asphalt the entire way now which is nice. The bumps are not terrible, and the worst ones are painted in orange. It’s definitely worth doing once if you are from out of the area like me. However it doesn’t have a lot of features compared to some other trails I have been on. For some reason I prefer the Nickel Plate and Converse/Sweetser trails northeast of here. Still 4 out of 5 stars for me.

Big 4 Trail (Lebanon to Colfax)

Lovely

April, 2024 by searl727

Great trail. A few bumps from tree roots but mostly smooth. It was very windy the day we rode but enough trees to provide a nice wind break. Started in Colfax-nice parking area. Didn’t notice a restroom. Thorntown got a little confusing to pick up trail but we figured it out. Great photo op Big 4 Trail painted mural under overpass.

Eagle Creek Trail

Trail to nowhere

April, 2024 by rma101560

Great trail along Raymond then a bad crossing at Harding. The trail is nice along Eagle Creek but it goes nowhere. There is also no parking available along the trail but it doesn't really make any difference. Will Indy Parks ever finish this trail?

Big 4 Trail (Lebanon to Colfax)

Solitary Ride

February, 2024 by sweetcat

Cycled from the trailhead at outside of Lebanon at Ralston to Colfax. It was a bit windy but such a lovely day! The trail has some bumps and ridges in several places but these tend to be grouped in segments and then you get to smooth sections and can get some good roll. We saw very few people and only two other cyclists. Once you get a away from the trailhead on Ralston the trail is quiet and you can enjoy zipping along and seeing the trees and fields. There are some creeks and bridge crossings. When you get to Thorntown the trail appears to deadend on a street with a gravel path across from you. Turn LEFT go down the street and turn right , you will see a blue bench labeled for the BIG FOUR. Follow along the street and you will look and cross to the left by the Lions Clin Oavikkion. FoRide the sidewalk until you link back up onto the trail on your way to Colfax.
