Monon Trail - Sheridan
The Monon Trail Sheridan follows the old Monon railroad in Northwestern Hamilton County. This is a shady (tree-lined), quiet trail with Biddle Park just beyond the trail on one side and neighborhoods on the other. There is plenty of parking at the northwestern terminus, SR 47 or E. 236th Street or E. 10th Street and Opel Street. There is also plenty of parking in Biddle Park, but no parking at the southeastern terminus, the junction with Lamong Road, also called County Road West 24th.
A variety of wildlife can be found along this trail, such as squirrels and various birds. This linear trail is very suitable for all, being 10 foot wide asphalt, flat and well-maintained. There are trash receptacles and pet waste centers all along the trail.
One can divert into the adjacent Biddle Park via a paved pathway connecting the Monon to it. This large park offers many amenities such as basketball courts, a large playground, picnic tables and grills, indoor and outdoor shelters, a gazebo, park benches, and open areas.
The northern terminus of the Monon Sheridan Trail is within walking distance into quaint downtown Sheridan, with many restaurants and eateries and other businesses. The northern terminus is also adjacent to the American Legion Post. Just off of Main Street, in downtown Sheridan, one can discover the red-brick 5th Street showing houses of various architectural designs.
The southeastern terminus of this .8 mile trail, at Lamong Road, is where the future proposed trail to extend to the Westfield Monon. Come explore the historic, easy trail of the Monon Sheridan and enjoy the quiet, pleasant setting.
