Panhandle Pathway

Now my favorite Trail !!

June, 2017 by stancks

My wife and I found this trail for the first time today. It was a beautiful, scenic 20+mile stretch which was immaculate and well kept. The asphalt had zero cracks and looked brand new. Bridges over the Tippecanoe River and Indian creek were very nice. Got to meet some of the volunteers - Friends of the Panhandle Pathway. Very Nice people!. Drove 2 hours from Dyer Indiana to get there. It was definitely worth the drive.

Nickel Plate Trail

naked rider

June, 2017 by gregorywall

The easy to find trailhead is a half mile West of Hwy 31 on Hwy 35. It is about 14.5 miles North to the Wabash River in Peru and the trail extends another half mile. You are then directed through the city of Peru for 4.5 miles by road markers until you pick up the trail again just north of Peru. The trail then continues about 20 miles until it ends in Rochester. The trail is paved asphalt and flat. It is very scenic and there are numerous places to visit in Peru and Rochester. It is an easy 45 minute drive from the North side of Indianapolis to the trailhead up Hwy 31. Safe travels.

Panhandle Pathway

The directions to the difficult to find Southern trailhead is go to 600 W off of Hwy 24 and go North. 600 W is 4.5 miles West of the Hwy 29 exit on to Hwy 24/35. Once on 600 W go 0.25 miles to 50 N at the Pisgah Christian Church and go East another 0.25 miles to the trailhead. The trail starts 0.8 miles South of this trailhead at a dead end. From the dead end the trail heads North around 22 miles to another dead end at 11th Street in Winnemac. There are trees along the trail for about quarter of the way and it follows Hwy 35. The trail is flat and paved asphalt. The trail is very picturesque
as it travels through the small towns between Logansport and Winnemac. If you are looking for a getaway from Indianapolis, it is about an hours drive to Logansport. You won't be disappointed.

Paradise Spring Riverwalk Trail

Short & Sweet

June, 2017 by kristin.creager

A short little paved path around some old cabins and down by the river. We were the only ones and made several laps on the loops. I imagine during a busy time or when there is camping this might be a better walk than ride but perfect for an early June evening bike ride!

Calumet Trail

Terrible

June, 2017 by davidjamessheets

Essentially, worse than an unpaved road as we biked thru standing water with tadpoles swimming about.

B-Line Trail

Great Trail

May, 2017 by frank17

We ride this trail whenever we can and all the trails that join the B-Line. Well maintained and friendly folks from start to finish. Great Trail!!!

Nickel Plate Trail

Nickel Plate Trail is First Class

May, 2017 by emmis

Today's ride was roundtrip from Kokomo to Peru on my Trek Madone 6.5 Project One road bike and it was a great ride. This is a first-class trail and one that should not be missed.

What trail? ATV maybe.

Prairie Duneland Trail

Bumpy but Nice

April, 2017 by dendodds

I loved being able to ride on a trail and not having to worry about being mowed down by a big old pickup truck. I traveled from the Chesterton Skate Park to Hobart (and back) but unfortunately I was really disappointed by the bumpy ride.. My road bike graciously transmitted every tree root and surface crack directly to me sorry butt. The only smooth section was around Rt 149. There were many stretches were absorbing the bumps didn't allow me to maintain any type of cadence. All that said - I'm feeling fortunate to have the trail available and will definitely be riding there again.

Fall Creek Trail (IN)

Beautiful in areas

April, 2017 by kgremosindy

I only give it three stars for a variety of reasons even though portions of the trail are beautiful to ride on. We ride this trail frequently as part of our commute to work in downtown Indianapolis. The north section of trail between Skiles Test Park and 56th Street/Emerson is very nice. It has fairly new asphalt, sits up out of the flood plain, and is wide enough to provide for safe passing of pedestrians. The southern section of the trail from approximately Fall Creek Pkwy and Allisonville Rd to Fall Creek Pkwy and Central Ave is also in good shape but you have to cross the river via the 38th St Bridge (on the busy road or on the pot hole/light pole filled sidewalk). The trail currently dead-ends at Central Avenue due to road and bridge work. The portion of trail between 56th/Emerson and Allisonville/Fall Creek needs a major upgrade. It is narrow, bumpy, curvy, and floods or holds water when it rains. Because it is within the flood plain, silt tends to collect which makes for slick going after a rain event. Once this section is upgraded and they finish the 38th St Bridge crossing it will be a very nice trail to the near northeast side. It will be even better if they ever continue it all the way downtown.

Indianapolis Cultural Trail

Fun Urban Trail

April, 2017 by arblady32

I rode and my daughter ran the Cultural Trail in September 2016. It is mainly a large square around the downtown area with a few branches which in some cases connect with other trails (the Monon and Pleasant Creek Trails). We found the trail to be very well marked and easy to follow with many opportunities for stopping at a cultural venue or a quick bite to eat or to relax at an outdoor park. A highlight of the trail is the portion that dips below street level along The Canal and connects with the White River Wapahani Trail which goes by the Indianapolis Zoo. The trail is easy to negotiate and quite flat. That said, this is not the trail for a training ride as there are many streets to cross and the trail is shared in some places with walkers occasionally making for crowded conditions. It is a trail very well-suited for a leisurely ride with easy access and parking, and definitely rates very highly among urban trails.

Dearborn Trails (Aurora - Lawrenceburg - Greendale)

Nice Trail

April, 2017 by mlehoffie

This trail was a nice trail for the beginning of the season. I am a casual rider and it is fairly short and flat trail. Nice tunnels and bridges. One thing I don't like is that it is not marked very well and if you are riding along the flood wall towards Hollywood Casino the trail just dead ends although the map says you can go further. If you ride into Aurora, the path is not marked and you have to make your own path through the town once you cross the large metal bridge.
