Definitely for biking, not for hiking. (sorry)

If you love just walk alone with kids its amazing. We loved it signs made us laugh. TY whoever keeps it so nice. No trash at all we even were prepared pick up some while there didnt find anything.

The access road from East 96th Street was closed so we parked along Crystal River Drive which parallels some of the trail. There were a couple openings in the brush and we took one to hop on the trail. No leaves on the trees or bushes made this much easier as we could see the trail through the blank trees/brush. We walked north to 96th Street and then back South to the 465 underpass. We had the trail to ourselves on a mostly sunny day. We picnicked at the 96th Street trailhead and observed (and then ignored) the trail closed sign. The trail was somewhat muddy despite not having had much recent rain or snow. Just winter precipitation I guess. Without leaves on the trees there were great views of White River.

This is a narrow singletrack built and maintained by Hoosier Mountain Bike association. It is of 3 serious mountain bike courses in Indianapolis (besides Ft Harrison and Southwestway). Keep this in mind as there are MANY places exclusive to foot traffic in Indianapolis. It's not that it's popular with Mountain Bikers it's one of the few places they are allowed.

It was sprinkling on and off when we went hiking, so there weren't any bikers on the tail (we did see two runners). This was a nice trail, I loved the signs of encouragement along the trail. Apart from the trailheads marked "Entrance" and "Exit Only" there seemed to be two other trailheads at the parking lot. Would love to explore those, as well.

Nice setting for a metropolitan area. Heavy bike use. Only negative is constant traffic noise from I-465.

this trail is either bogus or no longer exists

Love to run and bike this trail. It's a nice way to get away from the urban landscape for a while.

Great one way trail with about 80% bikers that you have to watch for. Other than that, it's a diverse trail with a lot of ups and downs which is harder to find in Indiana. About 4 miles if you turn around at the bridge like we did.

Great family trail. My wife and I ride this trail together frequently. For every jump that piques my interest, there is an alternate path that she is more comfortable taking.

Great trail to run. Just don't have headphones in because bikers come quickly and you have to be ready to jump on the side. The trail is narrow so if in company you have to walk behind each other.

This a fun route. Relatively flat with a number of short steep hills. Mountain bike trails are fun to run on because they twist and turn so much. Also fun to be in the woods but still in the city.

Great for someone wanting to learn but also push themselves - not your run of the mill easy beginner trail.

Loud street noise, but it fades after getting deeper in. Lots of wildlife. Very peaceful. Clean, well-kept trails. Not crowded.

This trail, while mainly for bikers, is also welcome to walkers. But yeah, more for bikers. I started the trail late in the day, and that was a big mistake. But it is beautiful!
