Big 4 Trail (Lebanon to Thorntown)

great trail

April, 2021 by melbs2038

This is way longer than 9 miles, I did Lebanon north for 12.5 and the end was nowhere in sight. It also goes south from trailhead, no idea how far. Great ride.

Trolley Line Trail (IN)

The hills made it a little difficult for me to rollerskate, but I am a beginner. I really enjoyed the trail though!

Hi-Rail Greenway

The exact opposite of Pigeon Creek Trail - lots of street crossings

March, 2021 by bikin-mike

Typical city trail. Dead straight. Lots of street crossings. All at traffic lights or stop signs so low danger. Crossing at Walnut and 41 has a light, but it’s a 6 lane road so pretty busy. Trail was clean and well marked. Nice solar powered lights. Didn’t see any designated parking areas. Bike rack and repair stand at U-Haul at Riverside Dr so maybe can park there. I parked in a doctor’s office lot at Lincoln and S Keith. Empty at 5PM......bikin-mike Mar 2021

P.s. For a nicer ride, head about 15 minutes west to the USI-Burdette Trail. Not a rail trail so not on Traillink. 3 gorgeous miles of paved twisties and hills through woods, fields and ravines. Well worth the trip.

best trail ever

wonderful trip across America

Pigeon Creek Greenway Passage

Much better than I expected

March, 2021 by bikin-mike

I usually don’t expect much from city trails. Too many streets. This one was a pleasant surprise. Parked at Gavin Park and headed south. Some of the trail on the levee, some on creek side, some on city side. Some nice easy curves and hills over levee and under underpasses. Trail does go around some scrapyards. Some minor trash around the skatepark. Had about 3 miles without streets. Last couple miles downtown along river are next to street, but nice wide promenade separated by planters. Just have to watch out for all the walkers and the scooters. Lots of nice signs about the history of Evansville. I really enjoyed this ride. Probably the best city ride I’ve ever done. Thanks Evansville.....bikin-mike Mar 2021

Pennsy Trail

Mary Anne Kuhn

March, 2021 by maryanne_kuhn

I love the trail! I think whoever is in charge of building it did an excellent job. I wanted to point out that there is a tent set up and clearly someone is living along the trail between German church and mitthoeffer. There are also Walmart carts back there

Pogues Run Trail

Easy trail

March, 2021 by sempremudando

Fairly easy trail to walk. It’s mostly gravel and some of it was washed out with recent rains. Watch out for the geese!

Pennsy Trail

Update to the map needed

March, 2021 by hadley6609

We rode the Pennsy from Irvington to Mount Comfort Rd on 3/13/2021. I'm glad to report that the trail has been completed along that entire stretch, which fills in one of the gaps presently reflected on the trail map.

As of this spring, the trail is in fantastic shape: brand new blacktop, wide, brush cut back several feet on either side. This is brand new trail in an area that was formerly a desolate abandoned railroad track running through a lower-income/industrial area, so there is a desperate need for a clean up along the new portions. Garbage galore is in sight everywhere in the early spring before the leaves come out. The trail itself, though, is immaculate. The Pennsy is straight as an arrow. However, In Cumberland, the Pennsy intersects with the Buck Creek Trail which goes north for about 3 miles following the creek. If you are wanting to add some sweeping turns to your ride, this is a very pretty side-trip.

Be forewarned that as of the date of this review there are no restroom facilities on this trail. It parallels US 40, so there are some big-box stores & gas stations within reach if you look for them, but no on-trail establishments between Irvington and Greenfield.

Bicyclists who enjoy a cold beer have a great destination on this trail. The Black Acre Brewery beer garden is just off the trail very near the western terminus in Irvington. I would also encourage those who are not familiar with the area to take a ride around Irvington if you have the time. The streets are winding and the homes are mostly old and stately. If you find yourself in need of a bike shop, Irvington also has Indy Cycle Specialists just east of the intersection of Audubon Rd and Washington St (US 40). This is an excellent bike shop, worth a visit even if you aren't in need of a new tube or whatever.

Prairie Duneland Trail

A "cool" ride with great connections

March, 2021 by davidsontm

Prairie Duneland was the first rail trail we rode, so for us it's a sentimental favorite. It's also close to home, so we ride it often.

As others have noted, most of the trail is well shaded and screened by trees, making it a cooler ride on hot days. The tree screening also helps make windy days more manageable.

But, with trees come roots, which often are the source of bumps and cracks on paved trails. Other than a short stretch near the Cleveland Avenue trailhead in Hobart, this trail mostly has escaped that problem. (Technically, that stretch is actually on the Oak Savannah trail, see below.)

Another good thing about Prairie Duneland is that it connects to several other trails. Just west of 149, the Iron Horse Heritage Trail branches off to the north - at about 2 miles it's a relatively short but nice trail.

Prairie Duneland also connects seamlessly at its west end to the Oak Savannah trail - in fact, if you start in Chesterton and head west, the last mile and a half or so before Cleveland Ave is actually the Oak Savannah. If you're so inclined (and willing to put up with a stretch of some twists and turns with non-existent signage through downtown Hobart), you can ride the entire Oak Savannah, link to the Erie Lackawanna Trail in Griffith, and end up in Crown Point.

These trails are all almost entirely flat and well paved. The one warning is that a rail crossing at roughly mid-point on Oak Savannah can sometimes be blocked by stopped trains.
