Covington Circle Trail

Awesome trail by brand new park

August, 2019 by tylerbrandi

Started off on this trail at the Covington city park which has brand new playgrounds, splash park, and restrooms. You could easily let kids play here for a couple hrs. The trail is paved and smooth. It’s almost a complete loop around town. Just a short jaunt down quiet neighborhoods will complete the loop. You won’t be disappointed with the this trail.

National Road Heritage Trail (Terre Haute)

East 2/3 is the best part

August, 2019 by tylerbrandi

The West one third or so through Terre Haute is mostly just wide sidewalks and is not well marked. But the East side is the great. Typical rail trail thru somewhat rural type scenery. Lots of benches, rest areas and even restrooms by football field at Rose Holcomb college.

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.

Lincoln Prairie Grass Trail

Great trail for a workout

July, 2019 by chckrbl8

Access to the trail is easy and I picked the West end trail head in Mattoon. I parked at Peterson Park where there are many shaded parking spots. The start of the trail is one block west and one block north of the park. The trail starts off paved and once out of town is crushed gravel. The trail is pretty well maintained and used quite a bit, but there were still a few sections where my comfort bike got a little out of sorts in deep gravel. Overall though, the condition of the trail was good. The trail is pretty flat and there are only a couple of places along the route where it is necessary to cross roads. The scenery is very peaceful and at one section, the trail cuts through a country club - so you may be sharing the trail in that section with a golfer or two... Both Mattoon and Charleston offer many opportunities for dining, so you won't go hungry! I will definitely be back and will use this trail for 50 mile rides in the future.

Covington Circle Trail

Three Sides of Loop Complete

July, 2018 by negangardo

As of writing this the north, east, and south sides of the loop are complete. There is new asphalt linking Pearl St and 136 on the east side. I skated a complete loop by going up 3rd St from the SW trailhead, turning right onto Union St, and turning left onto 5th St to get back to the park. The roads are pretty rough for skating unless you have big wheels.

The trail itself is pretty nice. The asphalt section is very nice and smooth, but the majority of the trail is a little rough with lots of raised cracks in the pavement that aren't marked. If you take the loop clockwise you get to enjoy a long downhill on the southern part of the loop though, which is fun.

Rosedale South Trail

:)

December, 2017 by amy.lane

Well-maintained paved trail with gravel parking lot at trail head. Trail head is on Central street on west edge of Rosedale. I only wish this trail was longer!

Vandalia Trail

Excellent!

August, 2017 by drreneeke

What a beautiful trail! Newly paved from Amo for a few miles before hitting the gravel path. We did the full 16 and was hoping there would be a restaurant to stop at once we hit Coatsville but there was nothing convenient at the end of the trail. Be sure to bring plenty of water and snacks. Beautiful scenery. We saw butterflies and hummingbirds throughout most of the trail. Very peaceful.

sorry

I wanted to say east side is best

National Road Heritage Trail (Terre Haute)

great asset to terre haute

July, 2017 by liechtyvix

grandson and I ride it often, little creek park is a good place for a picnic break. rose hulman is like a post card. access to cemetery for some hills and history, access to hawthorn park adds some miles. go west is best.

Lincoln Prairie Grass Trail

Much improved

August, 2016 by bristol1031

I first rode this trail several years ago and was not impressed: the surface was full of washouts and 4 wheeler ruts. However it now seems to be better maintained. The easternmost section is the best, a narrow corridor with lots of wildflowers and birds. As you get closer to Mattoon the trail opens up and there is no protection from the sun and wind. For a nice bit of shade take the spur into the Douglas Hart Nature Center.

First Time Trail Cyclist

July, 2016 by jmcnabb_tl

I live within five miles of the Amo trailhead but until this week I have never been on the trail. What a pleasant change in perspective. I know the roads and communities along the trail in western Hendricks county but never at such a delightful pace. Coming back soon!

Bataan Death March

May, 2016 by halls26

We used this trail for our Bataan Death March and it was perfect. There were plenty of access points for water/medic stations. One of the best trails I have been on.
