Bicentennial Woods Eagle Trail is a 1.5 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Huntertown, IN that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible year-round.
Fun trail, relatively clean cut trails are very easy to follow, good views along the creek. Great trail for walking dogs. Simple enough for whole family but enjoyable for any level of hiker.
Nice hiking trail
Very peaceful and quite
I had a wonderful time. And I enjoyed the peace and quiet that I really needed.
Trails are in good condition
Mosquitoes are unbearable. If you try this definitely bring spray. Trail is wet il and slippery in spots. Could not find a way to get to the large bridge to cross. Hopefully nicer once it dries out.
This is a beautiful trail set. Unfortunately recent weather has made mosquitoes horrid & there were many trees down across the trail plus a bridge out. Look forward to visiting in more favorable conditions! I'd love to know ages on some the larger trees that look quite well established! There are several others ACRES preserves close by also.
Great scenic trail- needs a little maintaining in places.
great short hike! Took my dog with me...she loved it! Very pretty scenery along the river
Very nice. I loved the hilly terrain and the peaceful sounds of the creek nearby. I can't wait to bring my dog here.

This trail was listed in my Hiking Indiana Falcon Guide. Located at Bicentennial Woods near Huntertown, Indiana. From Van Wert, Ohio it was 52 miles. This woods is 8 miles north of Ft. Wayne, Indiana. There are several trails here on 80 acres. We walked approximately half of the Dogwood Trail until it connected with the Eagle Trail, then most of Eagle Trail, with a couple side trails in between. This is a beautiful area with lots of large trees. Would like to go back sometime and walk the areas we missed today. Saw lots and lots of squirrels. One even jumped out at me. Rich even saw a snake scuttle away into the bushes.
Beautiful land, always well maintained.
Just went last Saturday with the new puppy. Great time, lots of ups and downs. Fun all around quick hike.
Bicentennial Woods is great for an afternoon hike! Check out the other ACRES Land Trust nature preserves at acreslandtrust.org!
Great trails. Few loop trails. Wonderful way to spend a couple hours or all day. One of the last old growth forests in Indiana. Many trees over 250 years old. Hiked with my four year old grandson. We had a great time together on the trails there.
I took my 5 year old son on this trail this morning. I was a nice starter trail with a few small hills. Very nice to get him interested in hiking.
This is a pleasant hike that will take you about an hour to complete. When you add in some side trails, the distance is a little more than stated.
