I regularly ride the Monon Trail on my bike. It serves me well in a couple of key ways. It provides an easy route north from my home in Carmel to out of the suburbs into the countryside. And in the winter when trail traffic...More

Building out the Monon trail north into Westfield has made a great trail even better. City of Carmel gets a lot of tings right and the Monon Trail is one of them. Nice place to walk, run, casually bike....

We love this trail. You can walk for miles and miles or just take short walks. We always do 6 to 10 miles. People are friendly and it is beautiful in the Spring, Summer and Fall.

Really nice trail. 96th street trailhead was not far from drury hotel, did 5 miles out and back on trail for 10mile run. Good mix of woods, homes, and downtown Carmel to look at along the way. Plenty wide to support many users.

The Monin is a beautiful rail trail but bike riders go way too fast and rarely let you know when they're coming from behind. Carmel has a speed limit on the trail but there's inadequate policing to slow bikers down. Would recommend this trail for...More
