Lots of fun. Some side trails through nice bottom land. A few river crossings. Trail is paved and flat but still in interesting stroll. Hit the side trails for a little more out of the way hiking. Pretty much what u would expect from a flat paved trail as far as difficulty. Still a nice spot to get out and really convenient as a route down to Broad Ripple from up north

This isn’t the Monon per se but a nice shortcut thru wooded paths. Both asphalt and gravel. Well populated but no traffic on a Sunday morning.

Flat plus paved = easy. Please change the rating. I drove out of my way for a more strenuous hike.

Why is this rated as moderate? It is flat except for a couple bridges and a tunnel. It is paved. Should be rated easy.
