The Franciscan Trail provides over 2 miles of walking and biking routes through Beech Grove, part of the Indianapolis metro area. The 12-foot wide, two-lane asphalt path allows residents to connect with nature, winding along Lick Creek and Beech Creek. It also connects to city parks, to schools, and neighborhoods, providing a safe alternative to driving to get around the city. A second phase of the trail has been funded and will pick up where the existing trail ends on Emerson Avenue. Construction of this 1.1-mile segment is expected to begin in 2024.
Parking is available at Sarah T. Bolton Park (1300 Churchman Ave, Beech Grove) or Don Challis Park (1100 S 9th Ave, Beech Grove).
