 Rode Hazel Landing with my 11 year old today, had a great time. Didn't have to worry about getting run over by faster riders. You never get far from the parking lot so if your kids get tired ,or have a mechanical, you are not out in the middle of nowhere.     P.S. I think the old car should stay , it was fun checking it out.

I agree Bill, the canines and I have been walking the trails for a couple of weeks.  Well kept secret, haven't seen many people and few bike tracks - probably you and the sprout.  Lots of squirrels too, bonus.

Took my 12 year old nephew over to Hazell Landing Trail on Sunday - great beginner trail!  Its kinda dicey around the turnaround at the north end - looks like some unfinished work.  Any plans to get a work day scheduled in the near future?

Is there any interest in turning Hazel Landing into a true loop?  The trail definitely needs some work as-is and has some sustainability issues, but the potential for a full loop in the 2-3 mile range seems to be there (longer if the grassy fields to the west can be utilized).  This could be a great place to go when TRTP is too crowded.

I don't have any official HMBA trail building experience, but I'm definitely interested in working on this if others are interested.  Could be a great project to work on once TRTP moves to maintenance mode.

Im definately down to help, I ride this trail a couple days a week.  I emailed someone, not sure who, a month or so ago to be put on emails for work sessions.  I havent heard anything back.  I'm down to help, but I do not have any training either.

Come to a work session at Town Run or Fort Ben and we'll train you.

Do we definitely have permission to do work on this trail and does anyone know what the boundaries of the park are?

Hazel Landing is a Carmel Parks property.  Future plans include natural surface connections to TRT to the south and River rd to the north.  Carmel's long term plan for the park includes paths on the prairie.  One of the limiting factors for this land is frequent major flooding

So I think it could be a good outlet and could be both a loop and part of the north to south trail along the river.  This is just a fun guess and does not account for anything other than the frisbee golf course so as to be as pleasant co-park habitat people.  So if there are low areas or physical obstacles, this is just from an overhead and the frisbee course and a logged ride of it.


Blue is existing and black is just for fun.  It is meant to exit right before heading back south along the trail at the turnaround.  This could be the new leg heading south so there is not conflict between north and south riders.

Actually this be a good thing as itll give the Frisbee golfers a proper path to use between holes.

Road Hazel Landing today.  Trail has lots of need for trimming.  I came out decently scratched up, highly suggest long sleeves unless it gets trimmed.  Also tree down near the end, though it looks REALLY old, so it's probably always been down.

I rode it this weekend.  It looks like it may need some signage.  I do not remember the disc course being so heavily intertwined with the trail to the point where there seems to be almost 2 trails until you hit the disc course.


It needs quite a bit of trimming.


It would be nice to do a trail system like stated below and the flood plain on down to 96th would be perfect to connect them together and use the fields that are in the flood plain along there.


The amount of land seems to be quite a bit more substantial then even Town Run.  Could we get something like the Chicago Pump track put next to the blue woods creek?  Without invading the naturally habitats?


And it would be connected to Fishers with the 106th street pedestrian bridge they have been talking about.  I think this is a County bridge project though.


Just thoughts.  I know from articles on here and elsewhere there are talks to develop it into trails and what not.


What can we do to raise awareness and encourage a MTB oasis that is just 1 mile from another trail and suddenly create a destination corridor.  It may not be an Epic quality type of area, but this would be cool!  Just need better crossings at 96th and Hazel Dell to allow safe passage from one trail to the other, unless they connect them under the 96th st bridge and then create a sprint zone next to the water conditioning plant.


Then make river rd a bit bigger up to 146th as it has been mentioned by the city and you suddenly have the "Hamilton County MTB Tour" or something generic like that.
