Trail Run at Marott Park

3 Miles Total - 0 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Nicholas Love

Marott Park is 20 minutes north of downtown Indianapolis and offers several scenic trails along the White River and Monon Trail. This is an excellent place to trail run on all types of terrain (hills, forests, sand, and river beds).

Parking for Marott Park is right off of College Avenue and is easily accessible for anyone living in downtown Indianapolis or in the Broad Ripple area. We often take our dog here to run trails along the riverbed. You can cover several miles of trails here and crank out some hill repeats (which can be rare in Indianapolis). It's a great place to meet other dog owners and to play fetch with your furry friends.

Vandalism

I run here often and I would recommend not parking on the north end of the park. I had my vehicle vandalized last fall and it seems to be a frequent thing. Other than that it is a nice flat trail that attaches to the paved Monon trail that runs for as long as you want to take it.
