Monon Trail

Haved loved this trail for 20+ years

May, 2023 by mccurdy.john

I've been riding this trail for many years, and after checking out other trails (in-state and out), I am always feeling grateful that we have this amazing amenity in our state. The previous comment describing the Monon Trail as "boring" is laughable, unless you find riding through vibrant midwest towns with art galleries, breweries, restaurants, lovely countryside etc. nearby boring!

One of the best things the state of Indiana has ever done.

Calumet Trail

Conquering 30 Miles of Wet Brutality

May, 2023 by dirksachse74

As a dentist with a penchant for thrilling outdoor escapades, I recently embarked on an adrenaline-fueled gravel expedition like no other: Calumet trail. Allow me to share my firsthand experience and rate this trail a solid 4 out of 5 stars.

From the moment I saddled up, it was evident that this ride would put my skills and endurance to the test. The gravel terrain presented a formidable challenge, demanding unwavering focus and precise control. The relentless rain turned the path into a treacherous, mud-covered rollercoaster, adding an extra layer of intensity to the journey.

Despite the daunting obstacles, I couldn't help but appreciate the breathtaking beauty that enveloped me. Towering trees and verdant landscapes created a stunning backdrop, reminding me of the untamed wonders of nature. Catching glimpses of wildlife along the way added an element of awe to the experience, showcasing the harmonious coexistence between humans and the natural world.

However, let me emphasize that this trail is not for the faint-hearted or inexperienced riders. The technical demands and physical exertion required are not to be underestimated. Prior preparation, both mentally and physically, is vital to fully embrace and conquer this challenging course. A reliable and robust bike, such as my trusted companion, the Sirvelo, is an absolute must for tackling the rugged terrain.

Amidst the hardships, a sense of triumph washed over me with each conquered section of the trail. The sheer satisfaction of pushing my limits and overcoming the obstacles was an extraordinary feeling, fueling my passion for adventurous pursuits.

In summary, Calumet trail is an adventure that beckons seasoned gravel enthusiasts to rise to the occasion. With its demanding terrain, awe-inspiring natural surroundings, and an invigorating rush of adrenaline, this trail earns a solid 4-star rating. So, fellow adventurers, don your gear, prepare for an unforgettable journey, and let this gravel odyssey ignite the thrill-seeker within you, even if you're a dentist like me!

Blue River Trail (Shelbyville)

Nice ride!

May, 2023 by tkfortier

Very well maintained trail with great scenery of parks, soccer and baseball fields. The short ride on the city streets takes you by the Cow Palace. A great little place to stop and have lunch or ice cream. Great afternoon ride!


Big 4 Trail (Lebanon to Colfax)

big 4needs repair on Thorntown section

May, 2023 by jtkoehler2

The Thorntown section has bumps on the pavement from Sugar Creek to Serum Plant road. The trail north of Sugar Creek is great. The section south of Serum Plant road is getting repaved and should be open in the fall. I wish Thorntown would repair their part they are responsible for maintaining.

Big 4 Trail (Lebanon to Colfax)

great trail

May, 2023 by jtkoehler2

We rode the trail today May 19,there is a tree down . I called Colfax clerks office and they said they will get to it. From past experience with the office,they are pretty quick on taking care of any problems. I also asked them when cutting the grass to blow the clippings into the grass not on the trail. The Thorntown section from Sugar Creek south, needs some repair. Various places on the trail have nickeled asphalt

White River Greenway Trail (Martinsville)

skate trail

May, 2023 by grubbs.megan95

Great for inline or quad skating. After the bridge there’s this tree that has little seeds that can be an issue for wheels. Has a kayak/canoe drop point now to.

Parke Community Rail Trail

So much fun!

May, 2023 by hsrector224

Nicely paved and well maintained. It looks like it’s about to expand and I can’t wait to see where it goes!

Panhandle Pathway

May, 2023 by beyerjf

Have been on this trail from both ends. Winimac and Royal Center have plenty of services. Half shade spread though out. Good condition over all. You will like it.

Big 4 Trail (Lebanon to Colfax)

Mild and straight

May, 2023 by joe3dominik

I rode from Colfax to Thorntown today. There are intermittent patches of mustard garlic up and down the trail. I would like to see a clean-up planned for this part of the trail to clear the mustard garlic.

Heritage Trail (IN)

A lot of fun

May, 2023 by everettnotwashington

Beautiful scenery with lots of little alternate paths that branch off the main one. Well maintained, clear signs, great location

Pumpkinvine Nature Trail

Pumpkinvine Nature Trail

April, 2023 by carl.arelt

This trail is a national destination for anyone who loves biking. I've rode many great trails in seven states, and this one rates at the top. A long, or short ride is definitely worth the trip. As you can see from the many great photos a fall ride is the absolute best.

Honey Creek Trail

Nice, paved trail for walking, biking or rollerblading

April, 2023 by kittyvista

I began my walk at the trail head in Middletown, and walked east toward Honey Creek. The trail was nicely paved and level. I only walked a mile or so, but I was impressed with the natural beauty I came across. The area near the trail is marshy, and the skunk cabbage and marsh marigolds were just starting to flower. There are numerous buckeye trees along the trail that were clearly planted by squirrels or blue jays. Every so often, you'll see a brilliant spray of redbud in bloom.

There is parking in town behind the fire station, but you can also use the parking area in the town park that is just north of the trail on Raider Road. If you are planning to walk east as I did, this would probably be the best choice for parking. Although many people driving on Raider Road will stop if they see you are wanting to cross the road, the drivers have the right-of-way and they are not required to stop. Parking in the park means you don't have to cross Raider Road on foot or bicycle.

Because there are no benches or port-o-potties, you'll need to know your limits. The trail itself is an easy walk / ride, but it is lengthy and it's easy to go further than you planned on.
