Henry Horton State Park is well known for their championship 18-hole golf course, inn and cabins, campgrounds and trap and skeet range. The 1,140-acre park has three hiking trails where you may see a variety of wildlife such as wild turkey, deer and many kinds of wildflowers. Summer months bring hours of family enjoyment whether it's swimming in our Olympic-sized pool, fishing along the Duck River, playing volleyball or basketball, or having a picnic, Henry Horton State Park has a lot to offer.
Fun trail. Runners, beware; Stumblestiltkin Trail is what I'd call it! HA! Pay attention to footing. Rock tips & protruding root structures litter certain portions, just pay attention. Hikers be sure to check out the limestone beds & rock crevices, sort of cave like structures. We ran this on 12/3/16 w chilly 47 degree temps w drizzle, still fun trek through the woods. Saw 4 deer twice on this loop, we circled them around after spooning them the 1st sighting. This trail reminded me of the 5 mile Hidden Springs loop at Cedars of Lebanon. Only complaint is sound of road traffic on occasion. Still, great trek through some dense forest.
Pretty trail, a little busier than some others but not by much. Multiple options for trails. I took the first trail, the outer loop and then the river trail but never found my way closer to the water. There's a cool overlook spot with stairs leading up to a deck but unfortunately you can't see much of interest up there (at least in mid October, could be completely different earlier in the year). I'll be visiting again in the Spring for a fair trial. :)
The trails entwined so it was hard to have a clear idea of how far you actually went and where exactly you were. The trails are color coated, We had the provided trail map but were confused. All the trails loop though so we walked until we were tired and then jumped back on the color trail that took us back to our car. We had a blast and will do it again... very easy walk.
