Progress Parkway Trail Description

The Progress Parkway Trail is a flat, hardtop shared-use path running along the east edge of Shelbyville, Indiana. Despite its name, the trail actually starts along Lee Boulevard, on the east edge of Blue River Memorial Park, home to the Blue River Trail. Past the park, the sidepath branches onto Progress Parkway at the Walmart Supercenter, the greenery having been replaced by various retail and fast food businesses. After crossing Broadway Street/ SR 44, the trail continues south along Progress Road, with the setting switching commercial to industrial, then to agricultural.

After crossing the railroad, the trail continues south and west, intersecting with another sidepath at Amos Road, before continuing to its conclusion on SR 9.

Parking and Trail Access

Park at the Blue River Memorial Park ( (725 Lee Blvd.) and then take the walking path back to Lee Boulevard to connect to the trail.

Some nice sections

If you start this trail at the park you will have to contend with a busy truck deliver and customer parking lot with several crossings that have limited visibility due to overgrown bushes. Then you have to cross the busiest multi-lane road in Shelbyville. Once that is behind you though, the rest of the trail is pretty nice. It is smooth paved and has some scenery. It does follow along side the parkway for most of it’s length. The Blue River trail is much prettier and has less city traffic to deal with.

Town Ride

It was a nice ride just on the outskirts of Shelbyville and the trail leads into the Blue River Trail
