Summary:
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!

Summary:
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!

Recommended Route:
Warm up on the intermediate. Then hit the expert.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Town Run.

Summary:
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.

Summary:
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.

Recommended Route:
All of then

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Westwood, Town Run Trail

The lewd behavior at Rangeline Nature Preserve has been cleaned up and being monitored by Anderson Police Dept.

Summary:
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.

Recommended Route:
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.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
96th street. Very good trail that flows well.
Westwood. Big hills (for northern IN) and very fast.
