So, the excellent rating is because the trail is really well marked, wide and easy to follow. Except for one block where it jogs behind the main street before returning to the main drag. We missed this both directions and a local literally sang out...More

This trail is brick paved and winds around the downtown area. It is a nice way to see Indy while on a bike or walking. Much better in many cases than the sidewalk is, which often has bumps.

Rented a pacer bike and followed the trail. Easy to follow and a great way to see Indy in a couple of hours. Wish the had a few mor bike stations, but managed to get around without being charged extra on the bike.

It is self-guided. I would start near Meridian and Maryland. From there I'd go "off-trail" to see the circle monument, then route back on the trail to pick see all the other cool buildings and shops.
