The Pleasant Run Trail travels along both the creek and road of the same name as it courses through eastern Indianapolis, although the trail is located on sidewalks in certain areas. In the north, the trail begins at Ellenberger Park, where it makes a loop around the manicured grounds. Additional park loops can be found midway along the trail at Christian Park and at its southern endpoint in Garfield Park.
The Pleasant Run Trail connects directly to the Indianapolis Cultural Trail at Shelby Street.
Parking for the Pleasant Run Trail can be found at Ellenberger Park on East St. Clair Street; at Christian Park on Kingbridge Street off English Avenue; and at Garfield Park on Conservatory Drive between Shelby Street and Pleasant Run Parkway.
I have been going to Garfield park for years with my kids cuz there are always others for them to play with here. This is the Southern end of the Pleasant run trail. It is a little older and not what it once was but still a nice urban nature park atmosphere most days with a view of the downtown skyline. Now, once you leave the park going north, the “trail” is not only covered in piles of dirt, debris, and broken glass, but there is NO lighting for early morning or evening exercise which really contributes to the very sketchy and unsafe feeling of this decayed area by the creek. My recommendation, leave the (UN)Pleasant run trail off your list of places to see in Indy.
Parked at location in title and rode into the Cultural Trail. Peaceful.

This has to be the worst trail I have been on in 2 years. I ride trails all over the Midwest and this trail is a disgrace. Get ready to dodge holes, cracks, stones and piles of sand and dirt everywhere, if you are in this area just go to the Mohan Trail don't waste your time here

This trail is not maintained & if you really like getting flats, this is the trail for you. Most directional & informational signs have been stolen or vandalized. Glass can be found all along this trail. The railroad underpass on English Avenue is a particular disgrace. Glass & trash, rocks & road dirt make this a definite place to dismount.
