Biking is green. Biking is good exercise whether you’re twelve or sixty. And biking is fun! Best of all, biking is catching fire all over bike tires

Indiana with new biking trails, biking awareness programs for drivers, and clearly marked biking paths.

There are plenty of biking trails to take advantage of near Rose Lake Estates. Here are just a few:

  • The 146th Street Trail follows its namesake roadway across Westfield, on the northern outskirts of Indianapolis. At Rohrer Road, the pathway connects to the Monon Trail. Farther east, the trail offers access to two popular shopping and dining areas: Clay Terrace and Cool Creek Commons. Along theway you can access to Carey Grove Park, which features a community garden, picnic spots, playgrounds, a half-size basketball court and a softball diamond.
  • The Carey Road Trail offers a straight north-south route through southeastern Westfield. It parallels the eastern side of the roadway through rural areas and residential communities.
  • The Centennial Trail lies in a pleasant neighborhood of the same name in southwestern Westfield, about 15 miles north of Indianapolis. The trail crisscrosses a broad stretch of open space along Liberty Drive and travels south through the community, passing two small ponds along the way.
  • The Farm Heritage Trail runs through a canopy of Indiana hardwoods, fields of corn and soybeans, and, at its northern end, passes over the scenic Sugar Creek on an iron bridge. The trail extends from Lebanon to Thorntown, following the former route of the Big Four Railroad. In 1861, Abraham Lincoln traveled this route on his way to his presidential inauguration.
