Blue River Trail
I have been here for 9 months and finally took the time to find the Blue River Trail. It was well worth the hunt. A convenient access point for the trail is located on the south side of the city. You will see a sign for the trail just past the first traffic light on SR 9 coming north into the city. Turn right just past the sign and you will find the access point where there is a nice parking area. The trail of course follows the river. It is asphalt paved and is in excellent condition. Along the way there are locations to stop and sit on a bench and just relax and view the river and trees. The trail is well shaded in most places and is therefore cooler in the hot weather. Rolling terrain and beautiful scenery provide for an excellent bike ride or walk. The paved trail ends at the far end of the city park. For the adventurous it continues on with grass at first and then a well worn trail. This portion of the trail is unpaved, but relatively smooth for biking. As near as I can tell, you can go all the way to US 30, but you will have to cut through an easement of a residential area to loop back to the trail access. This requires going through town. The ride is well worth your time.
