The Monon Trail is a fun venue. We’ve ridden our bikes, walked our dog and walked on it with our granddaughters. There are parts that are shaded when it’s hot out. I highly recommend enjoying the trail.

We had a great time here. A lively place to walk. Several places to grab a bite along trail. We had a very relaxing experience. You don't have to be a power Walker. Plenty of slow walkers as well as runners share trail amicably.

I have biked the Monon from the Cultural trail near Mass Ave. to where it peters out in Carmel, and it is a gem of Indy. The Broad Ripple and Carmel sections are particularly atmospheric. I think in Carmel alone, you'll pass through parks, wetlands,...More

Back when we lived in Indiana, my wife and I began pedaling this trail on Saturdays, and they were some of the best Saturdays. You can take it as fast or slow as you like, and Indianapolis and the Broad Ripple neighborhood in particular line...More

Definitely!! Please be respectful of others and bring your doggie bags. There are dispensers along the trail where you can dispose them. Enjoy!
