Scenic or leisure trails that are not "mountain" bike trails.
« on: August 30, 2015, 06:44:36 PM »
Yes, my wife and I like to ride real mountain bike trails, but we also like to just ride slowly and talk and enjoy the scenery.  What bike friendly trails/paths/parks that aren't full-blown mountain bike trails are there in central Indiana?

Paved? Unpaved? Distances? Other attractions?


My main thought would include the paved greenways system, but they generally don't pass through many "natural settings" if that's what you're looking for. If that's what you're after, Fort Harrison State Park has a couple of paved loops through the woods, which have some hills, and which connect to the Fall Creek greenway trail.


I am not aware of much else, really.

I will second the Fall Creek Greenway (from Fort Harrison State Park down to Meridian Street).  It is pretty nice and scenic paved trail that runs along the Fall Creek.  It is over 8 miles from end to end and the loop in Fort Harrison will add miles to that.  It also connects to Skiles Test which is a nice little climb.  And unlike the Monom, it usually isn't very crowded.
