Erie Trail

Great Trail

May, 2022 by amrosenow

This trail is a great gem for the community. I stopped by while visiting family and was thoroughly impressed by this trail. Yes there are some cracks, but not nearly as many as many other rail trails and most have pink spray paint to point them out for bikers and, I am assuming, to fix them. The trail is also a decent distance and is close by to an ice cream shop (perfect after a 90 degree ride!).

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.👍👌🤓

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.

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.

Cardinal Greenway

A Great Ride from Richmond to Gaston

October, 2021 by jonesandrewd_tl

I rode the section of the trail from Richmond to Gaston over two days - essentially, all except the part above the gap to the north. It's a really good trail, but there are just enough shortcomings that I hesitate to put it at 5 stars, particularly compared to trails I've been on in West Virginia and Pennsylvania earlier in the year.

First, I'll note that I didn't notice any pig farms, despite expecting to on the southern section, nor any Rottweilers. There were some cow farms and a horse farm, but the only hazard were the many walnuts on the trail. I did see two cats, a lot of chipmunks, and quite a few blue jays, though ironically not a single cardinal.

The scenery is mostly fairly narrow wooded areas, with farms on the other side, though there are a few areas of denser wooded areas, notably by the nature preserve south of Muncie. This can be pretty, but it's also only partially shaded, and the afternoon sun slices through the trees pretty effectively. If you're doing a longer section, I recommend going northwest in the morning, and southeast in the afternoon if possible. I was going northwest and west in the afternoon of the first day, and the sun was doing an admirable job of trying to blind my left eye.

Amenities are good, but just short of great. There are restrooms every 4-5 miles, most of them with hand sanitizer, which is quite good. There are a decent number of water fountains as well, but of the three I tried on the northern section, two smelled bad, and one (by the Hitching Post, technically off of the White River Greenway but close to the Cardinal Greenway) didn't work. The southern section was reliable in this area. Outside of Muncie, there aren't a lot of places to pick up water in the northern section either, so err on the side of packing more water than you'll need.

The trail condition is generally very good, though it can be a bit bumpy in spots in Muncie. McGalliard Road is a more highly trafficked road crossing than most trails have, but it has an island in the center so you only need half of it to be clear at a time. I recommend jogging the bike across halfway at a time if it's a busier time of day.

The elevation gain is not negligible. Including segments on the White River Greenway in Muncie, and the Whitewater Gorge Trail in Richmond, I logged over 2000 feet of elevation gain, and it was noticeable, especially on the southern section where there were moderate, but extended, hill climbs. By comparison, I logged less than 1200 feet of elevation gain on the Greenbrier Trail in West Virginia, which is also longer. So don't assume that because it's in Indiana, you won't have some decent climbs!

I also should note that it's worth going into town in Muncie, whether that's the White River Greenway, which intersects with the Cardinal Greenway in two places, or grabbing some food at some of the excellent restaurants or breweries downtown, which is easily accessible from the trail. I always try to find a cool town or city to serve as a base when exploring a new trail, and Muncie did a great job in that regard.

Cardinal Greenway

A different section

October, 2021 by tim.patz

Got 6 miles in starting by Muncie.
This portion of the trail is just as the other couple parts I've experienced.
The paved trail is mostly flat, level and equally shaded/open.
The one thing to be aware of is a couple bad spots/cracks in the pavement that could result in an ankle injury or biking issue, but this should not deter one from using the trail.
So as always, if in the area and want to get a couple miles in, this should do.

Big 4 Trail (Lebanon to Colfax)

Fun trail!

October, 2021 by donanderson2828

Today was my first rails to trails ride and this one was amazing. Love the scenery and I plan to add many more to my list and come back to this trail again.

Big 4 Trail (Lebanon to Colfax)

wonderful trail!

October, 2021 by linda.rice1

This trail is shaded, and enjoyable — goes past farmland. I recommend a hybrid or mountain bike because some parts are bumpy old asphalt with some pea gravel. There are some roads to cross that are larger gravel. We got past thorntown and about 3-4 miles left of the trail to colfax was closed due to construction on a trail bridge. The workers said it should be open in a week or so. And you paved miles

Monon Trail

A great ride, but keep your eyes open in Westfield

September, 2021 by davidsontm

A new favorite! We rode from the Carmel trailhead north to Sheridan and back. The trail was beautifully, freshly blacktopped in the Carmel area - but also very heavily trafficked (granted, it was a beautiful day and Labor Day weekend). Once we got a bit further north, the trail was still smoothly paved, but we had it largely to ourselves. The trail is well-shaded for much but not all of the stretch north to Sheridan.

So to be clear, we loved the trail. From here on, I'll focus on providing info you might find useful.

Be advised, the Monon in this stretch is not always very well marked. It's especially sketchily marked in the Westfield area, where we ended up making an accidental detour west on 186th Street. The problem is compounded by the fact that there are sidewalks and paved trails all around you in that area that to all appearances could be the Monon.

FWIW, going north from 186th you should be starting at the intersection of 186th and Wheeler Rd, which changes names to Tomlinson Rd north of the intersection. From 186th north, it's basically a straight shot and there's really no question about whether you're on the Monon.

The trail becomes gradually less suburban and more rural the farther north you go from 186th, and you end by riding past barns and cornfields in the Sheridan area.

At Sheridan the trail ends at an American Legion hall at 236th St. There are two or three gas stations a short ways east on 236th where you can get drinks/food and use the restroom, but you'll have to ride on-road to get to them unless you backtrack a bit on the trail and cut through the adjacent Biddle Memorial Park.

We'd like to go back and run the stretch from Carmel to downtown Indy, but we'll probably wait for a weekday when we hopefully can avoid some of the traffic on the trail.
