Mountain Biking Town Run Trail Park

****   Add a review
#38 of 98 mountain bike trails in Indiana
#3142 in the world

Love it or hate it, it's the most ridden trail in Indiana. TRTP is a fast 8-mile loop, including many fun, flowing, short climbs and drops over an earthen levee.

    Really upgraded the trail. More obstacles with drops and bridges. Also dryer than before with improved drainage.

    The trails are usually in good condition but when I went today the trails were on rideable fallen trees covered the whole trail and one before that caused you to crawl under it

    Is there an app or a web page that posts if tracks are open/closed each day?

    Great ride! This was my second trail ride, but my friend let me borrow his GT Mtn. so I had to take it for a spin. Enjoyed it.

    Super fast flow trail in Indy. A must if you're in the area. Mostly beginner trail but does has some intermediate side lines you can take. A good combo ride with Fort Harrison trail.

    Awesome trail nestled right outside and under the 465 loop. Good flow and some technical areas. Well maintained by some dedicated veterans!

    Very fun trail - one of my favorites. I usually go during work hours on weekdays as the trail gets pretty crowded on weekends. Extremely well kept up. Great variety, nice flow, jumps and bail outs, shade and sun - it's just awesome!

    Great track! Flow really well. Warns you of drops, just sometimes they are right there and sometimes they are farther away. Lots of great berms and turns. The entrance is very hard to see. Its overgrown and the sign is brown, camouflage. It's also a one lane entrance. With a 29er full suspension, Very Fun. The pictures don't do it justice.

    The trail where it all began! It is a very fun and fast ride. No climbing or any real challenges but thanks to the speed you will have a good time on this trail!

    Very fun trail, fast and flowy with very little climbing. If you are in town you should try it, very easy but they did a great job with the space.

    What a fun little loop! Hard to find but completely worth it. Keep your eyes peeled for the recessed entrance just after the quarry. Essentially, this is one smooth track with plenty of pump-like sections and a couple of natural and constructed obstacles... just add some speed and wow! Rode right passed a dear that didn't even flintch and had plenty of beautiful scenery to enjoy. This trail is VERY well maintained by the HMBA (Hoosiers!).

    Im was a out of towner The ride was good overall it was pretty easy i was able to ride the whole thing with my dj single speed(only thing i had with me)
    The reason i gave it three stars was because one local rider ran me off the trail causing me to go down. Other than the local jerk it was good.

    This is a great trail for beginners as well as advanced riders. You can choose some more challenging obstacles or keep it simple and avoid them. It is well maintained and easy to stay on the correct route. Not too challenging, but it can be fun to try and beat your previous time!

    I am from out of town but always hit this trail when visiting for work. It is not very challenging but VERY fast so I am always trying to beat my time. There is very little elevation minus the small levee that you go across several times. I rated this intermediate because there are some jumps, logs, and off cambers if you chose to do them. This is a must do.

    Track can be fun if your not run over by the spandex brigade going 35mph on a 15mph
    Course. The finally paved the main parking lot too. Fort Ben is much better,much less trail traffic.

    Fast and flowing trail. Very good place to stretch the legs. The trail is directional. Please do not ride backwards. The trail follows White River on one side of the levee and returns on the opposite side of the levee. There is 2-way traffic where the trail goes under the highway (I-465). Stay left to avoid oncoming traffic and to pick up the correct trail on the other side. Since the trail is along a river it floods. Check www.hmba.org for closings. They keep it updated daily.

    The trail is beginner friendly, but can be difficult with speed. Good place to go when you are with a group of mixed riding levels.

    There are very few places to take a wrong turn. Take the obvious looking route and you will make the whole 8 mile loop. If you do take a wrong turn, the worst that will happen is you will end up back in the parking lot too soon. The land is surrounded by river and road so you cannot get too far off track.

    I like this trail for a faster pace ride. It is very twisty, but it has very good flow which allows me to keep my speed. The trail is very well maintained.

    Very nice beginner single track. Nothing challenging about it. Gets boring after a while.
