Thank you for hanging out with me! From day to day you never know what life will throw at you. And it will often be this way in my blog as well :) But lest RUN WILD and LIVE FREE in this amazing adventure together!
One of the best things about the Indianapolis area is the ability to get anywhere in town on the trail system. The White River Trail is a 10.6 mile trail that will bring you all over town!
We discovered the trail on our first visit to town and the zoo. Here are some major destinations along the trail: Riverside Regional Park, IUPUI, Marian College, Indianapolis Museum of Art, Canal Walk downtown, White River State Park, and the Indianapolis Zoo.
When I was in town by myself I felt very safe on the trail as long as I stayed north of Washington St. Once I crossed Washington St. I found that there were transient people in tents down by the river. And for me, being alone and not knowing the area well, I decided to turn around and head back towards town. If I had been with another person I would have felt much more comfortable riding. So just be aware and keep an eye out.
The trail is well lit and well marked. Paved and nice and wide so there is room for bikers, walkers and runners alike. There are plenty of places to stop and relax along the river in the grass and some amazing views.
So next time you are in town either bring your bike or rent one and go for a ride! Get out and discover this wonderful city.
