Explore the most popular mountain biking trails in Indiana with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

This is a new paved trail. Wide lanes and great views.

This is a narrow benchcut singletrack built and maintained by Hoosier Mountain Bike association. It is of 3 serious mountain bike courses in Indianapolis (besides Town Run 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 ... and they are required to buy an additional $20 annual pass for the privelege.

There is also hiking only off-road trails in the northeast section of the park along fall creek. The trails there are wider and it's easier to negotiate passes

This is a wonderful trail for a beginner, during the summer and fall months it’s even more fantastic. They have even added more backpacking sites! There’s 7 of them now and all of them have amazing views. There are a few steep hills to climb at the backside of the trail but take your time and you can do it!

Love this greenway. I have rode it many times on my bike. Will be taking my daughter along this year and getting her off those training wheels.

Nice easy hike with a little pond along the way. Cant wait until it warms up some more and I can ride my new bike along here.

Took my 3 boys on the south loop. 3, 8, 10 they did great! The lookout tower was a fun stop on the trail. We all had plenty of energy to see the waterfalls and the mill afterwards. Will definitely come back through the seasons!
Nice restrooms

Started at Deam Lake hiked about 6 miles passed Bartle Knob to New Chapel Trail head. This trail is very well marked. There are mile markers to help you know where you are. The trail is challenging. There was ice on the trail this weekend, making the steep decents treacherous. There are very few switchbacks, so you are straight up and straight down.

Love biking from downtown to broadripple.

fun in the snow, saw a super cool waterfall and climbed up inside with the ice.

Very Difficult to navigate. If it wasn't the winter time and the trail wasn't packed down, I'd have no clue where I'm going. The trails also merge in clusters, and there's no way to identify which trail goes where.

I'd give this trail 2 out of 5 starts, but evidently some people navigate much better than I can... Pictures online look great and I must've missed it! Ultimately, the "views" aren't worth the research this trail takes.

nice park, great playground and bike trails

A great resource for this part of the state. The hiking trail was longer, more meandering, and more challenging than I had anticipated, all of which were nice. I first hiked this trail in January 2018, with a full backpack and trekking poles, during snow and cold weather. I saw only a few ice fishermen and one mountain biker when I was there, so lightly populated. I wish I had visited Westwood sooner and will definitely be back.

Theres a great fire tower that you can hike or drive too, really nice in the late summer

A hilly walk in the woods. The trail is in pretty rough shape this time of year with frozen hoofprints from horses. No bridges, but fairly easy to do the 2 water crossings.
