Fort Harrison State Park is a state park for many seasons for many reasons. Patrons may enjoy visiting the park all year round, especially in winter since Fort Harrison features the Sledding Hill, one of the biggest in this area. Spring is the season to walk with the woodland wildflowers in full bloom across the park. Summer is the perfect time for a canoe trip down Fall Creek, the major water feature that runs through the north side of Fort Harrison. Autumn brings warm, sunny days and breathtaking fall colors to this, the last forested corner left in Marion County. At Fort Harrison, landscape and history blend together at this unique setting on the north-east side of Indianapolis. The 1,700-acre park features walking and jogging trails, picnic sites, fishing access to Fall Creek and two national historic districts. The former Citizen's Military Training Camp is preserved around the park office in what was once known as Camp Glenn. Visitors may also want to stop at the park's Museum of 20th Century Warfare to view exhibits about the lives and history of the soldiers who once marched the grounds of old Fort Harrison. An oasis of green in an urban landscape, Fort Harrison State Park is one of the hidden gems to be found in the state, just minutes from home for many visitors needing contact with nature.

It is our favorite trail. We also try to grill out at one of the outdoor grills and picnic tables. We bring our dog Dash with us, and take a couple different routes every time. Beautiful!

Nothing unique about the trail, but plenty of people were there. Great for dogs to get to swim and socialize since they also have a dog park

Our favorite trail. Beautiful through all seasons.

Great trail!

Trail is quite windy which is good but there is a section that isn't marked well and I'm pretty sure I crossed over into another trail.

Loved hiking along the creeks and ravines . I would have liked this trail better if it wasn't for the Mountain Bikers. They were all very courteous and respectful , but just had me looking over my shoulder to see if they were coming . It was a 4 mile hike

Just a heads up $7 to get in to the park to get to the trails

Storms this week so trees were down. They usually do a great job of getting them clear quickly. Lots of good ridges - a perfect mix of climbs and downhill.

Probably my favorite trail at the Fort. Lots of variety in the scenery. Web is right the trail is 3.5 miles long.
