Departing from the Fall Creek Parkway, this route can be accessed by car or ridden to by bike. There are many safe paths, including the Monon Trail, by which to access the Fall Creek Trail. Once on the trail, it cuts an excellent route from the center of Indianapolis to the East side of town. The trail ends at Skiles Test Nature Park, but just before entering, riders will divert to Ft Harrison State Park. Ft Harrison is a former Army installation. The grounds and barracks have now been converted into public and private lands. Boasting excellent food and beverage choices, this area is quickly becoming a "hot spot" in Indianapolis. Ft Harrison has great paved routes for recreational road riders and an excellent trail system for MTB. Be sure to catch a beer at Triton Brewery before heading back home!
