Monon Trail

Bring your dog along to explore the Monon Trail, a converted railway that winds for 26 miles through Indianapolis, connecting Sheridan, Carmel and other smaller communities along the way. The paved, dog-friendly trail welcomes Fido on a leash, as long as they are cleaned up after. The trail can be accessed from sunrise to sunset. Visit Website

    This is a black-topped walking trail amid scenery that varies depending on which section of the trail you choose. I like areas with some shade and some wildflowers, my little dog likes that too because there are more dog scents to take in. We do a mile down and a mile back. There are frequent mile markers, for the benefit of dog owners and the other walkers and the bicyclists. Of course you can't forget your leash with all those possible encounters! But the traffic is civilized - no one's going to take aim and run you down. Many people are genial - many are "plugged in" and don't greet you. ......... Since this goes right through the city, there are convenient places to buy refreshments. ....... Poop bags and trash barrels are provided, and in summer there are occasional porta-potties for humans "caught short" away from other facilities. Good parking. It's a great part of our repertoire of walks.
