The Nickel Plate Trail will someday stretch from Indianapolis through Fisher to Noblesville on the former Norfolk Southern railbed. The five-mile section through Fishers is the most advanced part of the trail: the trail has been paved between the Noblesville border at 146th Street and 106th Street. Paving down to the Indianapolis line (96th Street) is underway. The trail crosses several streets as it goes along. There is a crossing with a warning signal at 141st street and a tunnel under 116th Street that allows trail-users to avoid waiting at the intersection. Fishers has big plans for the landscaping and programming of the trail, including new public plazas, street furniture, public art and connections to downtown businesses.
The city of Indianapolis has secured funding to begin construction on their section of the trail, while Noblesville is yet to begin. In the meantime, the Fishers section of the Noblesville Trail provides an enjoyable walk, bike or ride on the path of the historic railroad, while promising even more to come.
From I-69, take the E. 106th St. exit. Go west on E. 106th St. for about 0.3 miles. There is a smaller gravel parking lot to the right of side of the trail. That lot also acts as a trailhead for the Cheeney Creek Natural Area. There's also bike parking, a drinking fountain bike racks and benches.
