B&O Trail

A Welcome Retreat

September, 2019 by davemarty54

My wife and I moved to the area just three months ago, but this trail has quickly become one of my favorite places to get away, usually on my bicycle. As others have said, it's mostly quiet and well maintained. In fact, as I rode this morning a man was slowly riding his three-wheeler and blowing fallen leaves off the trail. Much appreciated!

Big 4 Trail (Lebanon to Thorntown)

pretty but bumpy

September, 2019 by jtkoehler2

My wife and I ride this trail a lot. (age 63 and 65)we have one here in Crawfordsville but it is too short.
We have ridden the whole trail Thorntown to Lebanon and back 3 times in the last month. The sections around the cities and Hazelrigg are smooth. the rest is bumpy. Lebanon has filed for a grant from the state and wants to take over pave and maintain the trail from Lebanon to Surem Plant rd (Thorntown). (We started a bike riding group from church we wanted to introduce others to the trail and bike riding.)
Going north out of Thorntown the trail is 8/10 of a mile and then ends at Sugar Creek. I saw where Colfax got some grant money to connect to the trail south, we will see how long that takes. I'd give it a 5 star rate if it was paved smooth.

Sugar Creek Trail

connection finished

September, 2019 by jtkoehler2

as of last year the break in the map shown is now connected. There is also a parking lot next to the animal shelter which is where you can get on the trail. (that is the connection point) You do not have to go the west end anymore to get on it. It is all paved. My biggest complaint is that it still does not connect to downtown trail head park. which would solve the other problem, which is , it is too short.

Vandalia Trail

where it's paved is great

September, 2019 by jtkoehler2

We got on the trail at Coatsville. That was closer from Crawfordsville for us. There is about a 4 mile paved portion of the trail from 1 mile west of Coatsville and east to Amo. The rest is loose gravel. Not so good to ride on. We rode on it for 2 miles and turned back. For us we will not be riding this trail again. it is too long to travel to from Crawfordsville especially with a gravel trail. Neat looking old railroad station in AMO.

Franklin Greenway Trail

Nice Trail

August, 2019 by jonasstevens

This trail is nice. However, it could use better signage. It’s easy to take a wrong turn and end up turned around. It’s also very narrow in a few areas making it hard to pass others. I’m not sure why but in 4-5 areas colored chalk covers the trail making it a mess if you’re not careful to avoid it.

B&O Trail

nice ride

August, 2019 by jtkoehler2

We rode the B&O for the first time. I enjoyed it. My wife didn't like all the road crossings. She does not like to ride her bike around any traffic. That's why we do trails. Any way The trail is very well maintained 12.3 miles was the total round trip. I do like all the lights for crossing the roads We did not try the Regan trail. (Getting tired.) My only negative is there was no place to park. We parked in the church lot across the street. The person who told us about the trail said we could. (he goes to that church)

White River Greenway (Noblesville)

variety of scenery and trail design

August, 2019 by mewjones

I rode 8 miles on this trail on a Saturday with my boyfriend and our 12 year old. We parked at the pool in Forest Park (they let us use the restrooms without question). We rode east then north first until that section ends at the river. And I do mean at the river. Break check - don't ride in! By far the nicest section. Almost total shade on the north/south section. Nice to be along the river. The trail is not very wide and is VERY winding. Most people we encountered were walking and didn't seem to be used to coming across bicycles so stay alert. We then went south through Forest Park. Very nicely landscaped. It connects to the Noblesville Riverwalk (or something like that) just south of the park and across the river. We were excited to explore that upon coming across it, but a minute in encountered a complete closure for construction so that was disappointing. We then went back though the park and took the spur that goes northwest out of the park. Nice trail, but once it turned into riding along a regular street in direct sun on a very hot day we turned around. Overall, decent trail. Too bad it's not a lot longer.

Vandalia Trail

Mixed Surfaces But All Lovely

August, 2019 by cmc2condit

We set out from Greencastle and the gravel surface there is sound but the bike path isn't on the railroad bed so it winds a bit with small ups and downs. Not for skinny tires! But it was lovely and ride-able on our mid-tire bikes. The section from Coatesville to Amo was asphalt that was smooth as glass. What a lovely treat! The whole distance was partly tree covered so the sun didn't bake us, but enough open places to enjoy the fields and flowers.

Midland Trace Trail

Much longer now

July, 2019 by crbishop

This trail runs winds uninterrupted from Union Street in Westfield to Hague Road just outside of Noblesville's downtown area. It also unofficially easily links with Natalie Wheeler on Union St. which will take you to Cool Creek and can join you up with Hagan Burke at 146 (Now in Carmel) which will take you to the Monon w/o having to navigate major roads (sans crossing 146th st)

Franklin Greenway Trail

Nice Trail, But Could Use Better Signage

July, 2019 by stvatandem

My wife and I parked at Blue Heron Park just off Rt-31 and rode eastward. The route is paved all the way, but it pays to be familiar with the route. We made a few wrong turns since there are very few signs directing us where to go. For example, the route goes through a cemetery. When we got to it, there was no indication which road in the cemetery to take. We eventually found the right way, but had to "hunt around" a bit. A map at the trailhead would have been helpful. A big plus is that much of the trail in Franklin is shaded. It's a bit more "open" when you travel farther east.

146th Street Trail

Okay but Busy Road

June, 2019 by dcolosi

I took a section of this trail that runs along the South side of 146th street from the Hagen Burke Trail to Hazel Dell. It's an okay trail but it does run along a very busy road and it was rush hour when I took it. The trail crosses several subdivision entrances and a few bigger roads. You just have to watch for turning cars but it was an okay route to take. The path does seem to have a lot of debris on it with twigs, loose gravel, etc. that you need to watch for and it isn't as wide as other trails. I don't think I would use this just for a casual ride but to bike commute it did its job.

Hagan-Burke Trail

Nice Connection

June, 2019 by dcolosi

I tried this trail for the first time yesterday on my commute home. I picked up the trail from the Monon trail and then followed it up to the 146th street trail. With the Rangeline road improvements there is now a dedicated crossing with crosswalk and lights. The trail is fairly wooded and there is a creek that runs along side. Due to all the rain a section of the trail was flooded near the apartments but I was able to ride through okay. The trail had good signage which was nice because there were several offshoots that one could easily take and get lost without them.
