Clarksville Heritage Trail

Nice New Section!

June, 2019 by connie40023

I believe the Levee Trail, Heritage Trail, and the newer section combined is now called The Ohio River Greenway, and it goes all the way to downtown New Albany from Clarksville. It is a very nice asphalt trail most of the 8 or so miles with very little climbing. Put together with other trails in the Louisville Metro Area it makes for a nice long weekend cycling getaway. Be sure to visit the Big Four walking (and cycling) bridge across the Ohio River, and the Louisville Loop —especially the section in the Parklands of Floyd’s Fork (20 minutes east) while you are in the area.

Monon Trail

A great, urban, suburbs and rural trail

June, 2019 by marley69

I have done about 75 trails in 28 states including the Minuteman in Boston, the Little Miami in Cincy, Riverfront in St. Louis and several trails in Chicago, etc and this trail is simply the best urban trail I have ever ridden or heard about. 26 miles with scenery from Indy light industrial to Broad Ripple hipster to Carmel upscale ( maybe the best five miles of the trail) to Hamilton county farm country, through two major parks and Carmel's truly unique downtown, there is something for everyone. But what stands out are the amenities along the trail, from restrooms, water stations and numerous places scattered in many locations to get something to eat or drink, most catering to the bicycle crowd. If you are a bicycle tourist, this is a must ride trail.

White River Greenway (Carmel)

Nice Easy Trail

June, 2019 by dcolosi

I use this trail often and you can now go all the way up to 146th street. The Southern part of the trail located in River Road park takes you around the park and along the river and one of the holes at Prairie View golf course. Head North and the trail runs through a wooded area and neighborhoods. You can cross River Road and take the trail past Prairie Trace elementary all the way up to 146th street now. This connects to the 146th Street Trail. Makes for a nice bike ride or run.

Ronald Reagan Parkway Trail

Silty and needs lighting

June, 2019 by rockafella82

I really like this trail. It is newer and the pavement is mostly even. Railbed trails are far better overall surfaces, but that should not be held against this path. North of Washington St (US 40) the path runs on both sides of the divided highway! Along the length of this short trail, however, there is NO lighting for early morning or night commutes/ training rides and it gets DARK. This makes the trail more hazardous due to the zig zags near intersections and limited lighting nearby. The very fine silt dust that accumulates on the path from the nearby fields is also extremely slick. I fell on this path recently without warning due to silt+moisture and got a bad concussion. Overall, add some lighting and more miles to this and it could be a great run that connects to the B&O snd Vandalia Trails.

Milwaukee Road Transportation Trailway

Milwaukee trail springtime

May, 2019 by llimko

Beautiful trail, lots of wildlife.

Monon Trail

They thought of everything!

May, 2019 by llhart802

Beautiful trail - plenty of access points. We were impressed by how well thought out the trails extras were. Porch swings, super clean bathrooms, even a bike repair station. There are quite a few required stops for busy roads but 9 out of 10 times the traffic stops for you.

Big 4 Trail (Lebanon to Thorntown)

Beautiful but bumpy

May, 2019 by greenfatburner

Great trail for walking, jogging or moutain biking but not so great for road bikes. I made the mistake of assuming the whole trail was paved like the pics I saw of the trailhead in Lebanon but about 3 miles north it goes from paved to hardpack/gravel. Lots of bumps and out right potholes so keep your eyes open, whether on bike or foot. It's not impassable to road bikes but if you do use that kind of bike do yourself a favor and let some of the air out of your tires. I inflated my 28mm tires from 60 psi to about 75 psi cause I wanted to reduce drag and go a little faster. I made the round trip of about 15 miles no problems but when I got home my front tire was flat, probably from a pinch flat. Other than back and forth on surfaces not a bad trail. Loved the little oasis about 5 miles north of the trailhead! Plenty of benches if you want to take a break and a port o potty. Thanks #BetterinBoone

Central Canal Towpath

Decent trail in most areas

May, 2019 by kgremosindy

We ride this trail quite often. The portion which passes the Art Museum and Butler are very nice. Once you get closer to Broadripple, the trail starts to get narrow and crosses many busy intersections. The really narrow section is the portion right before Broadripple where it is barely wide enough for a bike. Beware if there is someone coming towards you. Portions of the trail are currently closed due to construction of a flood wall. You have to ride the road from the Rocky Ripple area towards 56th and Illinois. Don't ride this trail after a rain unless you want to be covered in limestone grit and muck.

Pigeon Creek Greenway Passage

uhhhh NOT FINISHED

April, 2019 by amberwright1222

Would have been great to know online or their website that the trail doesn’t connect!! Ended up biking down first Ave which sucked and tried the entire time to pick up on this trail which ended up imaginary. Just saying it was a LONG day and then made it to the very short portion near the river front. If the sign is there which it is but it’s SO faded it tells me that this project might have been forgotten about. EVANSVILLE finish this could be amazing trail!

Veterans Memorial Bikeway (IN)

Needs Work!!!

March, 2019 by kurthand83

I rode the trail December 15, 2018 and it was very difficult!! Lots of very loose rock, shrubs across trail, etc.

B&O Trail

Great, quiet path

March, 2019 by theafterpipe

Pros:
This trail is well-tended and clean with even pavement over most of it. There is a small portion where the trail crosses E County Rd 300 N that is gravel, but it is otherwise very clean. The trail is shielded from traffic by trees on both sides. The sides only open up a few times along its length. The trail is relatively flat and wide making it an easy path to walk and bike. This path is very quiet.

Cons:
The trail is only 6 miles which is short if you want to run a long distance. The entrance to the trail at Raceway Rd is difficult to get to as there are no sidewalks leading to it, and it ends very close to a road that has no shoulder. I usually have to access the trail by parking in a local business and walking across grass to get to it. Another con is that, while the trail is well-groomed and trees are plenty, there are very few turns or hills that provide interest to the trail.

All-in-all, it's a fantastic,quiet path to run, walk, or bike, although it could use a little more interesting scenery and the east entrance is difficult to access.

Riverside Trail (IN)

Nice trail - it gets snow plowed!

January, 2019 by rwengel13

I have run all along the St. Joseph River in the South Bend area when visiting . I was pleasantly surprised to find out that this section (riverside trail) was already plowed by 7 am on a Sunday morning (1/13/19) from the previous night’s snowfall. Thank you very much to whichever agency is responsible! You made me so happy!
