Midland Trace Trail Description

Much of the Midland Trace Trail is still in the planning and development stage; however, three short, disconnected segments totaling nearly 2.5 miles have been constructed as of 2013.

When complete, the Midland Trace Trail will follow the abandoned Central Indiana Railway corridor (a.k.a. the "Midland") from Westfield to the White River in Noblesville, paralleling State Route 32, located roughly 0.25 mile to the corridor’s north. The future trail will pass through scenic woodlands and open fields, cross two historic railroad trestles and link neighborhoods, schools and parks in Noblesville and Westfield.

For now, Midland Trace Trail users in Westfield and Noblesville can travel between South Union Street (at Martha Doan Cemetery and Memorial Park) and Willowview Road in Noblesville (construction east of Willowview Road is slated for 2019); between Spring Mill Road and Ditch Road on the northern edge of new residential development; and from Quaker Park on Dartown Road to a seamless connection to the nearly 20-mile Monon Trail just west of Westfield Park Road.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Midland Trace Trail is available at Quaker Park on Dartown Road and Simon Moon Park on South Street/E. 171st Street.

Midland Trace Trail Reviews

This trail runs winds uninterrupted from Union Street in Westfield to Hague Road just outside of Noblesville's downtown area. It also unofficially easily links with Natalie Wheeler on Union St. which will take you to Cool Creek and can join you up with Hagan Burke at 146 (Now in Carmel) which will take you to the Monon w/o having to navigate major roads (sans crossing 146th st)

Westfield has done a nice job on the trail so far. Will be great when it connects to the Monon. Then one could ride r/t all the way from Noblesville to downtown Indy.
