TOTALLY in town. Directions have changed due to some
landmark property buyouts: Union offices are now a school;
Taco Bell is now an ice-cream shop. Same trail, but rough
on most bikers!

Just wanted to write and let everyone know that the expert is the funnest trail in Indy thus far. There are some fast rhythm sections similar to Town Run but there are some tech. uphill hairpin turns, sketchy raised trails, and some trees you have to ride over. You actually have to be good to ride at Rangeline. The 7 miles go by slow because there is so much up and down and turning on the mounds. Its a different type of tired as your whole body is being used to ride this trail, not just the legs. Check it out!

Warm up on the intermediate. Then hit the expert.

This trail has come a long way in the last 2 years. There have been numerous obstacles built in the last few months. The expert trail is about 7 miles. There are jumps and drops that if it is your first time check them out before attempting. The trail dries really fast. The lower river section will stay soft most of the time and lots of bugs. Lots of up and down roller coaster, sand and tight single track. The funnest trail around by far. There is a skills area in the parking lot. Lot of elevated skinnies teeter totters.

Just moved here from Washington State where trails are a plenty. I was very please to find this trail. It has a little something for everyone. Beginner, advanced and expert, clearly marked. I can comment on anything except the expert trail. They make very good use of the area that's available. Some pretty technical sections and lots of pure endurance sections. My bike weighs over 45 pounds and its built for downhill but I still had no problem getting through the ride. There are even a few catwalks, and one that ends with a teeter. Fun stuff. I would however like to see a few more man made jumps throughout some of the flatter sections.

Tough trail, the multitude of technical elements (tons of logs, steep climbs, suspension bridges, rock gardens and other structures) are really challenging, especially for a novice or intermediate rider, my only gripe is that they should have some ride around trails so riders can bypass these if they like. Navigating around the various trails can be somewhat difficult at first, too. This trail has a ton of mogul ups and downs (probably around a 100 if I had to guess) and has a surprising amount of elevation change (it has several steep, long descents). The trail is fairly well maintained, and is fairly wide. The expert section makes up most of the distance of the trail. This trail becomes more satisfying once one has ridden it several times.

On a side note, this trail is in Anderson, and the Anderson park system has a long history for "lewd" activities. The past two times I've been there, there is always several middle aged men sitting in their cars with suspicious looks on their faces. The only people who should be here are 1) bikers, 2) runners, and 3) fishermen. I imagine the park has become, due to its seclusion, a haven for drug dealers among other weirdos. Anyone who visits the park should keep their eyes open, ride with a partner if possible, and report any suspicious activities.

All of then

This trail is awesome. I read so many good things about this trail on hmba.com so I had to check it out. This trail offers non-stop action right from the start. Some of the trail was previously ATV trail so there are several bermed corners to keep your speed and lots of little
(2-8 ft high) hills. As a matter of fact there must be at least 100 or more of these hills. There is sand, mud, rocks, logs and just about any obstacle you can think of being on a trail. It doesn't have the high speed like others around but it's definately more challenging. What a change from the norm. YEAH!!! Go try this trail. You won't be dissapointed.

Customer Service

Ride the black route. It's the longest and the most demanding. Just watch your speed if it's your fist time the corners come up quick.

Westwood. Big hills (for northern IN) and very fast.

Things have changed 100% for the better. Rangeline is now open to bicycles, hikers, trail runners, and fishermen. The Hoosier Mountain Bike Association and DINO have taken on the leadership of a massive trail improvement project. Rangeline will soon have 7-8 miles on the longest route (black diamond) as well as easier shorter loops of green and blue marking. There is also much potential for freeride park amenities... big jumps and technical stunts. Get involved and it will happen. To ride the new course, park in the parking area on Rangeline Road, south of 10th Street, north of White River. You can look for Mounds State Park on your map and go about one mile to the west to find Rangeline. We'll be having trail work days every Saturday at 9am. Please join us to make this into a riding destination!

Customer Service

Go northward from the parking area. You will start on a combined green/blue/black trail for the first mile or so. Then, choose your ability level and distance preferences. You are in for a challenge on the black diamond course!

This growing trail system is actually quite good. Although it is relatively flat, it has quite a few different terrains. Single track through woods, double track by the river, and even an old rock quarry. It take some time to find all of the trails, but it is worth it.

I69 to StRd. 109 N to UAW on west side of road.

A smooth riding trail, small up and down hills, but relatively flat in most areas, it connects to the paved trails around the shady side park. The trail ends up in the old rock gravel pit on the east side of anderson. Its has a developing housing addition located on the hill that the trail runs along. So usually afew minutes ride in you encounter a few people, over all it a breeze of a trail and quiet.

If you think this trail is easy, you are missing the real stuff. The wider trails are fairly easy but there is a loop of 3-4 miles you can ride that contains more than 50% super tight difficult tall whoops over and over with no rest.
Go northward along the river about 1/2 mile or so then turn off onto some narrow paths you have been speeding past on the main trails.
