Great trail for running, once around the Perimeter is 3.5 miles. I can see how it would get muddy in the spring or fall, but frozen winter was perfect.

In my opinion, central Indiana's Nickle Plate Trail is a FANTASTIC paved trail. Lots of shade and few, polite trail users. Try it, I bet you'll like it.

Nice flat trail but had to turn around and jump on the orange due to some flooded areas. Made some makeshift bridges but that only got us so far. Will be coming back to check it out when it hasn’t rained.

If there’s been precipitation recently, plan on areas with standing water that will be difficult to navigate without getting your feet wet. While this is not the most scenic route Eagle Creek has to offer, it is very flat. Portions run close to the interstate so it can be noisy. Overall, the areas in the woods are nice for a fast, flat run (or hike), but the portions between the wooded areas can be uneven because of the cycle of moisture to mud to dry.

I would consider this to be closer to the moderate classification. It’s a beautiful hike that winds around the lake and crosses several springs. Instead of following the old road I stayed on trail one and enjoyed the woods.

Nice hike through a park

Nothing to not enjoy about my time on the trail. I walked 5 miles north.

My son and I biked the first 10 miles of this trail starting at Peru and heading toward Rochester. The trail is paved, level, and very well maintained throughout. There were clear mile markers, and good railings along elevated portions all the way. The trail is mostly wooded as it's an old rail line, and it takes you through typical rural scenery for northern Indiana. From the trailhead at Peru to the tiny Town of Denver (Mile 1 to Mile 8 or so) is an especially beautiful ride through the woods and over creeks and rivers, especially with lovely fall foliage at this time of year. There were some fallen walnuts and twigs at spots on the trail but we didn't have any real problems Would definitely ride this trail again in the future.

Great fall hike. We started at the Nature Center and did a short walk on #1 until it connected with #2. As older hikers, we hiked clockwise to hit the hills and stairs early in the walk. We connected to#4 to make a 7 mile combination walk. The scenery was beautiful with changing leaves, geese, swans, chipmunks, red and grey squirrels and a quick glimpse of a deer. The cut throughs are a great idea so you can customize your walk. The trails were clear and for the most part, well marked. Using the park provided map helps with any confusion. Fellow hikers in this park were very friendly.

On a Wednesday afternoon, I only saw 3 people (closer to the roads). The trail is great for walking and running (in most places.) Various conditions, surfaces, and views make this an interesting and engaging walk. Stopping to explore and take pictures, easy to do in less than 3 hours. This app helped a lot staying on this specific route as a couple of turns would have been easy to miss. Overall, very enjoyable and highly recommended. Oh, a walking stick would have been nice just to knock down the spider webs along some parts of the trail.

starting training on this trail because I will be racing it on February 22. 2020. I'm a beginner to running... and I need to get my 4hr time down to an hour and a half. but this trail pushed me to my limits.....

This was a nice hike, we started early in the morning before anyone else was at the trail head so we had the first part of the trail to ourselves. There is an old train tunnel that was started but never completed that you can now go through just be sure you have a flashlight as you can’t see the other side due to it slightly curving. While in there we did see one lonely bat hanging on the rocks on the ceiling. The length of the tunnel is maybe 1-2/10ths of a mile. We began to see more people on the trail at this time but it still was no where near crowded. Part of trail had just been closed right before we got to it as we ran into a park ranger and he said that a tree had taken out one of the bridges so we had to adjust our route a bit by walking down the creek bed a half mile or so to connect back up to trail 8. We like this area as there is quite the diversity in hiking, has some hiking along cliffs, hills, creek beds and ridges. Not a hard hike if you take your time and enjoy the scenes.

Good combination of easy to moderate trails with some good steep elevation gains!

Pretty boring trail honestly. Beware of many many spiders to the face walking through their webs!

easy paved trail from Kokomo to Rochester Indiana. slight upgrade going North to Peru. hard climb from North side of Peru for first quarter mile then steady upgrade to Rochester. the bridge at Kokomo will connect you with the Industrial Heritage Trail. trail is regularly patrolled by the Nickel Plate rangers, a group of volunteers who maintain the trail.

it's a nice hike but sometimes it can be hard to follow the trail but beautiful September

The map they gave me you couldn’t read at all. Never found the trail. While hiking it says there’s one trail but looks like 2 or 3. Your basically on your own for finding the trail. Pretty for what I could tell.

The beginning part was a little confusing I went off trail a few times but after that it kind of straightened itself out and I ran it through twice but the second time I skipped the beginning part knocked about a mile and a half off the total all together it was about a 9 and 1/2 mile trip I enjoyed it

Easy hike

Great day on the trails. We started at 7 and checked out the views of Clifty Falls. Then did 6, 5, etc. and came back around the canyon on. 8. Took 2-3 wrong turns but near 7 miles total. Very impressed with the Park and trails. After hike stop in Madison at Red Pepperoni for pizza and beer highly recommended. Cool town!

It's rugged enough for me! Lots of variety along the trail. Glad I have the app so I can see where I zigged instead of zagged!

We hiked Trails 8, 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7 in that order which took us 3 hours. There were some wet spots; terrain is rocky in many parts, but it’s doable if you’re experienced. Definitely wear hiking boots. We paid the $9 for being out-of-state, but we could see where the money is spent with good markings, several wooden bridges & very clean bathrooms. Trail 5 has a cool bat cave. No bugs & shade most of the way.
