A walk in the country but in the city!

We walk here several times a week from Spring thru Fall. It is a greenbelt right in the middle of the city. Beautiful!

Warm weather....the Monon Trail is a perfect destination and experience. In this December, with limited snowfall, the crisp air and pretty good surface for walking and running makes this a year round experience to get one's heart pumping and inner furnace lit and burning. Friendly folks still smile and say hi from within their layers of clothing, and the overall... More

This trail lets you walk or bike or jog for miles without intereference from trucks, cars, motorcyles, etc. Walking with older person and pre-schooler felt incredibly safe and easy. The trail is very well maintained.

We took an enjoyable morning run down the Monon from around 80th Street to Broad Ripple. Route was straight, flat and scenic. Broad Ripple area changed the scenery and its was pretty enjoyable short diversion around the town. Also impressed with the Park Services who had cleared a fallen tree by the time we finished our loop. Well Done guys!

Hamilton County has the best section of Monon Trail. Marion County has let the Trail fall down with very poor maintenance so far in 2016.

From Downtown to Carmel you just can't beat this trail. We love starting in Indy and riding North. Love grabbing lunch along the way. Also great to park away from the fair grounds or broad ripple and ride in. It's an all round great trail

What a great use of the old train line, and north of Indy you can see the investments made by Carmel and Westfield. Biggest issue are the bikers who think it is a race track. When busy joggers might get frustrated zig zagging around people and groups.

I've never walked the entire trail, but it is easy to navigate for any age group, including bikers, and children in strollers. The area I walked provided shade, also at intervals there are benches to sit. Not sure how many restrooms along the trail, but there is a clean one within my walking area.

Great destinations along the trail, good connectivity and tree shaded. Use thiavtrail a lot since there are no cars and few road crossings.
