Nice recreational trail with lots of parks along the way. It's part asphalt part gravel. The gravel is manageable with road tires but not at high speeds.
I’ve been on this several times. I’d say the weirdest time was during July 4. We ended up getting a beer at a brewery in Crown Point. I don’t recommend it for those who want extensive workouts because it’s very flat. Still portions thru Highland can be pretty and parts South. The Northern section is in Hammond and it’s fairly close to another great Brewery called 18th Street. I still would like to find out how I could safely go to the Lake from here.
I have to say this route is actually interesting. Bridges are kinda neat. With extensive civil repairs over years to the Little Calumet River you can see a lot of wildlife here. I enjoyed seeing deer, various geese, duck, coyotes, Blue Herons, and fish. From starting in Munster the trail is really an accessory to Erie Lackawanna Trail. It goes thru Munster, South Hammond and ends in Highland at Indiana 912. No bridge to cross. It does not easily cross to Griffith. I have seen some segments of it in Gary, along I94. I’m not sure why they say it ends in Gary. Maybe it will one day? This is an interesting stretch because it crosses the river with some nice bridges and it can lead you to Erie Lackawanna at least a few points.
3 short loops each abt 3 to 4 miles long. Short rolling hills. Adulta will be fine, children in training wheels or bike without gears moght be a challenge. Dam area have canoe rental.
Road bike is not a problem. Trial is paved 99%.
Awesome trail. I took my fat tire bike for a 40 mile bike ride. This is great for dogs too since there's the des plaines river. Plenty of shade
Shady, paved and good signage. Make sure you map out which trail outlet you want to take prior to beginning. Trying to figure it out after coming off an elevation change is not good. Overall we enjoyed this track.
Went last weekend and enjoyed it. Tons of hills. One time I had to walk the bike up the hill. Other times had to drop 4-5 gears very quickly to get up the hill. Definitely want to go back in the fall.Beautiful view by the damn.
Started @ 165th in Hammond and rode to Crown Point and back. 30 miles total. My first trail in over 15 years. Loved the surroundings.
I've biked this one often because it is close to home, but I don't consider it as good as many other trails in the area. There is not a whole lot of shade on this trail, so you may want to plan to ride it on a cooler or cloudy day, or make sure to use sunscreen. There are also some very bumpy sections, especially a stretch in Schererville which they desperately need to repave. It's certainly not one of the more scenic trails, so don't expect to travel through woods and see birds and wildlife, etc. There's just not much to look at. There are also quite a few busy streets to cross so be careful if you are riding with your kids. I guess the one unique highlight this trail can claim is that there are four breweries right along the trail, or at least within a block or two (New Oberpfalz, Byway, 18th Street, Wildrose). You can also stop off at the Indiana Welcome Center, which is nearby as well.
This magnificent water view is located at Captain Daniel Wright Woods Green Trail.
I take this path from old spring street in mount pleasant (pike river trail) through pets park to the Kenosha Racine trail. The paved paths through the fields from hwy 11- KR are beautiful! The paths that run parallel to Green Bay road is very nice. I love this whole trail!
