July, 2024 by sickvic427

It’s a fun trail only downfall is there’s no where to park at the start of the trail unless you park at the ymca the only place is at yeoman park which is like starting in the middle of the trail.

South Adams Trail

Finally From Berne to Geneva

July, 2024 by djace1000

I rode this trail on 07/01 and they are about to pour the asphalt on it.
It is pretty wide trail and very bike/ walker friendly.

Thank you

White River Wapahani Trail

Beautiful, but …

June, 2024 by dmarkwillis

This would-be beautiful trail is ideally situated and features lovely vistas of Indianapolis, views of the White River and a curvy paved path through a shady, wooded landscape. Sadly, a good portion of it is marred by countless homeless encampments and the resulting undisposed of trash. A sad reflection on our city and its leadership. The trail was also dangerously scattered with river debris and thick loose sand in several low spots. Ride for curiosity’s sake, but with caution.

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.

Anderson Airport Trail

A short 1.47 miles, paved with slight inclines, clean and quiet. Parked in Chesterfield behind the airport at the American legion, it's free, good spot for a trailhead. Watches some planes take off. Raced a squirrel.

Woolly Bear Parkway Trail

mosquito heaven

May, 2024 by branden86401

Trail was all grass and tall at some points. Me and my 2 kids got bit up super bad though by mosquitoes. Spiders webs and mosquitoes are horrible.

White River Wapahani Trail

pretty good

May, 2024 by fly777300

Started the trail at Washington street and proceeded south. Trail was clean and clear until Oliver avenue then multiple tents with homeless folks under the overpasses. The trail gets narrower toward Kentucky avenue overpass and it turns into dirt and wooded area. I came back toward the north and the trail is very nice and clean.

Pennsy Trail (IN)

Awesome trail

April, 2024 by leanneklamb

Way less traffic than the Monon trail, had a great time riding my ride here.

Decatur Greenway

Decatur River Walk

April, 2024 by waldick4711
