Indiana has little to offer in the way of actual hiking and this may be yer best bet in the way of actual trails and semi burly terrain. Enjoi the most austere views and cascading water of the falls. Lovely and close to real shit.

Great trail and area to hike! I would definitely call this a hard trail, especially if you get up into any of the creek beds to view the fall base. Lots of elevation changes and rough terrain. The tunnel is definitely worth it if it is open, but you WILL need light to go through it.

My 18 yr old and I did trail 8 to trail 2 all the way to waterfall and back to trail 8. I would classify it as Hard. We went early and no one else was there and we went to bottom of falls(even though not supposed to). Very good exercise doing the trail 2 creek walk, tons of rock to creek walk.

amazing hike!

Beautiful well kept area. Rim trails give nice views of Big and Little Clifty Falls. Tunnel Falls view partial block. Tunnel Falls trail has cave to hike thru. Flashlight required. Creek bed trail to Big Clifty is moderate to diffucult. Quite rocky. Not recommend for young kids.

Great hike. Took the loop clockwise, there were a lot of things to see with various waterfalls, bridges and the tunnel. They were rebuilding the bridge at Hoffman falls so we had to take the road around. Trail 8 around the backside is just a regular rolling path through the woods once you make it up the hill from the creek. Overall a very enjoyable day,
