White River Greenway (Carmel) Description

One of a handful of trails following the White River in Indiana, Carmel’s White River Greenway parallels the scenic waterway for much of its journey through the eastern part of the city. Along the way, you can enjoy wooded areas, newer subdivisions, and River Road Park. The 62-acre park offers nature trails, athletic fields, a playground and opportunities to fish and boat on the water.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking can be found at the southern end of the trail in River Road Park on the east side of River Road north of 122nd Street.

White River Greenway (Carmel) Reviews

Nice easy/short trail

Nice trail with plenty of shady portions. Interesting points along paved trail to access a more rugged portion that runs closer to the river.

nice walk

A nice walk with some interesting sites/viewing points along the way.

Still one of my Favorite Trails

I ride this trail at least once a week. It’s fairly popular so you have to watch out for a variety of users. The original portion of the trail is within the park and is well maintained. As you head North the trail runs along the river and through a wooded area. In the coming year or two they will be building a pedestrian bridge across the river and connecting to the Fishers trail on Allisonville Road near Conner Prairie. That will open up the East side and make a great connection.

Just ok...

It is a nice trail if you like walking near neighborhoods. It can get pretty busy at times and the off-leash dogs around the River Road Park area gets really ridiculous. The park has become what many call an underground dog park, so be careful. Don't inline skate or bike through there as you risk dogs chasing after you while the owners do nothing.


Nice Easy Trail

I use this trail often and you can now go all the way up to 146th street. The Southern part of the trail located in River Road park takes you around the park and along the river and one of the holes at Prairie View golf course. Head North and the trail runs through a wooded area and neighborhoods. You can cross River Road and take the trail past Prairie Trace elementary all the way up to 146th street now. This connects to the 146th Street Trail. Makes for a nice bike ride or run.

Limited Views of the White River

This trail is well maintained and lovely, but calling it the White River trail is a bit of a stretch. My three year old hiking companion kept asking where the river is. All in all, very nice experience, and there is a cool little playground and restrooms on the southern end of the trail in the park.
