This is more a walking/exercising path then a hike. It’s beautiful and we enjoyed it and will definitely do it again. However it has nothing to do with Bryan Park and isn’t even in the same part of town. If you are just looking for a safe place to walk, jog, bike, skate this is a good spot.

This is a nice and cozy paved trail with mostly shade all the way from start to finish, its says 4.6 out and back, but me and my wife rode 4 out and 4 back, it looks like the trail has been extended.

Clear Creek is easily the most diverse of the paved trails in Bloomington, while remaining the easiest to conquer and navigate.

My dog and I walked it from Tapp Road to That Road and back. A very pleasant and pretty path! It's paved with benches and has birdhouses (lots of birds around), a pit toilet, and a water fountain with dog bowl; some houses along the way; shade in most parts; low to moderate traffic from dog walkers, bicyclists, runners, etc. Those looking for a nature walk may be disappointed to find that the area is really overgrown by invasive plants.

Nice easy shady trail that follows a meandering creek. Links to rail trail and onto b line as well.

More of an urban trail with paved walked ways etc. but still very nice and relaxing, could do without all the construction noises though. Kids (9/7/3) got a kick out of it.

I find reviews here confusing. The Clear Creek Trail (paved) and the Rail Trail (unpaved) are not the same thing, though they intersect. And neither is anywhere near Bryan Park!

Great flat paved trail for running, walking or biking that goes through some pretty landscape.

it is an all paved trail, great for skating, biking, etc. I prefer a rough terrain over paved though.

This is a really nice trail for an easy hike . It has benches, a drinking fountain , garbage cans and bags for doggie waste . It is all paved and has several bird feeders along the way . It was excellent to bird watch lots of birds everywhere . It did not have a bathroom along the four mile route just an FYI. The trail was marked well for mile markers, turns, roads, and stops. It had a fair amount of walkers and bikers and felt very safe to walk alone . Overall , this was a lovely little trail !

With the connecting B-Line trail recently extended north through downtown Bloomington, the rail trail makes an excellent spot for a jog or bike ride. The path varies from paved to small stone gravel which can get quite muddy after a good rain. The southern part offers great views of large trees, open land, and is a quick detour away from a nice creek. One of my favorite spots to get fresh air around!

The Clear Creek Rail to Trail is a beautiful trail that is particularly wide. It varies from light gravel to paved and even has a bathroom and water fountain along its way. I find it particularly good for Mountain Biking. Wapehani Mountain Bike park is nearby and ths Clear Creek trailextends through downtown Bloomington. It can be crowded during times of the day but people are friendly and polite. Just don't use it at night.
