What makes this interesting is the signs or what they call sculptures on the trail. Most just use paper, this also uses a holographic images as well as a sign that talks about the individual that contributed to peace. One of the at least 12...More

This trail is brick paved and winds around the downtown area. It is a nice way to see Indy while on a bike or walking. Much better in many cases than the sidewalk is, which often has bumps.

Rented a pacer bike and followed the trail. Easy to follow and a great way to see Indy in a couple of hours. Wish the had a few mor bike stations, but managed to get around without being charged extra on the bike.

They need to create more "cultural trails" it's one of my favorite things about indy, it roots around some of the best parts of town and it's great to walk or bike on in the summer/spring/fall. Indy needs to make more trails like this.

The Cultural Trail is a great path through downtown Indianapolis. It is fun to walk or bike. I have even taken the Segway tour on part of it. This was a great idea.

Hello. I believe the Culture Trail is self-guided. It's sort of like the Freedom Trail in Boston...marked by special bricks in the sidewalk. You just follow the bricks the whole route and it takes you past different parts of... More

It is self-guided. I would start near Meridian and Maryland. From there I'd go "off-trail" to see the circle monument, then route back on the trail to pick see all the other cool buildings and shops.
