It connects to both the Monon Trail and the White River Wapahani Trail. You could also use it to get to the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Butler University, and more. It has access points north in Broad Ripple at Westfield Ave. and Broad Ripple Ave. and south near 30th Street at Riverside Regional Park.
