Ouabache State Park Trail Loop is a 5.3 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Bluffton, IN that features a lake and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and walking and is accessible year-round.
The good and the bad - it's in the middle of Indiana farm country. Why good - so am I, so it's a few miles up the road. The bad - Indiana farm country is flat. Trail 5 (as all trails at the park), are nicely shaded paths through woodland, with an occasional footbridge over a wet area. Not a bad way to spend a few hours! The park also has buffalo, a lake and a fire tower that you can still climb.
It's probably not a 5 star but it's in my backyard and I gotta show some hometown love.
Easy easy trail. Wide and flat. Will provide shade throughout thentrail
