Midland Trace Trail

Great walk with my dogs

March, 2023 by 1corinthians6

Took my dogs on this trail in the early evening in March 2023 and it was a great walk. Not many folks, and much of it was secluded in forest or with lakes on either side of the trail. I imagine it might be buggy in the summer, given all the water. Started in Westfield and went east. Will do it again.

Nickel Plate Trail

Nickel Plate Trail

March, 2023 by carl.arelt

This is one of my favorites. Well documented, and long ride without much stopping for cross traffic. Just make sure you have a lot of water on warm weather rides.
Will have to drive down to Peru trailhead and cycle north.

Bicentennial Trail

Bicentennial Trail

January, 2023 by ed4lu

This trail is a classic example of short trails connected to longer and developed trails that allow access from neighboring areas. The trail is smooth with short access points along the way … it is open with most sections without tree cover and can get very hot during the Indiana summer ! This is the type of trail needed in many places in Indiana where small feeders trails bring residents out to longer and developed systems!

Big-4 Rail Trail (Zionsville)

Great local ride!

January, 2023 by benlarson

We took advantage of the unseasonably warm weather on New Years Eve and rode the length of this trail. We rode to the trailhead on Zionsville Road and went North from there. As of 12/31/22, the trail is uninterrupted from Zionsville Rd to Heritage Trail Park. You can go a little further North but after you cross S 800 E it turns into what looks like a driveway and eventually ends. I presume this will continue in the future, you can tell where the rail used to be. The whole thing is paved and some if it new, some old. Most of the intersections either go under or over the crossings which was nice, you hardly had to stop anywhere. The restrooms at the Zionsville City Hall were immaculate, and they had a really cool bike repair station there. Overall, it's a fairly short segment but if you want to get in 10-12 miles round trip it's worth the ride!

Hagan-Burke Trail

A nice bypass to north east Carmel

October, 2022 by dan.peterssccl

This is a great trail to help avoid the congested area of 146 street in Carmel/Westfield, especially if you are going east off the Monon trail. Also a great access toward Carmel High Athletic field using Greyhound pass trail.

106th Street Path

Smooth, wide & fun.

October, 2022 by dan.peterssccl

If you like great scenery of this beautiful town, on a fast pace and comfortable ride- this is a ride for you. The roundabouts are easy to maneuver once you get use to them. Many bike friendly motorist in a town use to cyclist. Also darted with some fun short hills!

Monon Trail

Inline skated from Grand Park north to the end of the trail - the path is wide, smooth, and not crowded. Then turned around and skated through Carmel, down to 86th. it gets crowded near Carmel, but the path is in great condition all the way.

Big 4 Trail (Lebanon to Colfax)

Thorntown to Colfax

September, 2022 by richit

Beautiful smooth ride. Visit the Carnegie Library. The ladies love biking visitors. Check out the historic Rosenberger Building also.

Monon Trail

Go North for some room to breathe

September, 2022 by lee.jamesb

Today we rode North from Grand Park in Westfield to Sheridan, IN and it was outstanding. Great pavement, smooth and wide all the way, it bumps up a bit 1/4 mile from the end of the line but not too bad really. Some really nice scenery and some old phone poles tucked in amongst the trees. Shade almost all the way too. A total treat.

Midland Trace Trail

This trail is shaping up nicely

September, 2022 by lee.jamesb

We ride the Midland frequently, it has been updated through Westfield and now takes you East to connecting trails in Noblesville at State Road 32 & Hague Rd and to the Monon Trail Westerly with options to ride as far as Meijer Supermarket too. By joining the Monon you can ride as far as Sheridan, IN. This trail is in very good condition and has lots of shade and small wildlife .

Bridgewater Club Trail

Well kept your through a really nice area

September, 2022 by lee.jamesb

Great neighborhood trail for bikes, golf carts, pedestrian traffic, and dog walking. We ride our eBikes through here and it’s fun with smooth trails and beautiful scenery. It connects to the Carey road trail in two places which will also get you to the Midland Trail and from there the Monon. Look for golf carts as you ride though some of the blind corners can be a surprise.

Carey Road Trail

Bumpy but convenient, Carey rd 146th to 32

September, 2022 by lee.jamesb

A nice well kept trail that goes from 146th street all the way to the Midland Trail and the Kroger Plaza on Hwy 32. Lots of pedestrians, bikes, and Golf Carts. Bumpy and narrow going past Bridgewater.
