For those who enjoy the great outdoors, there’s nothing better than a long, secluded trail system on a sunny day. Immersing yourself in the sunshine, listening to the wind, animals, and insects about you, and getting exercise while taking in the scenic beauty of the Indiana countryside is a pretty hard thing to beat. The Zionsville Rail Trail is a great way to experience the simple pleasures of a nature trail.
A 3.5-mile trail, the Zionsville Rail Trail is well equipped for biking, rollerblading, and hiking. The rail trail is located on an old railway line and takes visitors upwards through a massive boardwalk that spans Eagle Creek, the creek that eventually flows into Eagle Creek Park in Indianapolis.
The first part of the trail is asphalt, while the second is crushed limestone, making it a smooth, comfortable surface for any transportation.
The Zionsville Rail Trail begins at Starkey Nature Park; from there is passes through Boone County and proceeds through an old growth forest before taking a tunnel under a road on the outskirts of Zionsville, eventually leading hikers into residential neighborhoods.
