The trail itself is actually 5.6 and is now closed for timber harvesting. About a mile and a half is still open, but you will have to turn back. Slightly disappointing.
great beautiful Trail one big downside extremely overcrowded
I've done this trail 3 times and it is now a yearly must for me. It is a challenge to get to the trail, but walking the wide trails along the knobs is a lot of fun. Fun trail!
A wide, well marked trail. The sign said the trail was 5.6 miles. Not suprised to read others claim over 7 miles. First few miles put the hiker on a ridge with peaceful views looking down to the valley to the right or the lake to the left. At the halfway point the trail changed directions and headed down to the valley and through the woods. I walked beside a quiet stream. I crossed the stream in multiple places.. Hiker might get wet feet during the rainey season. The climb out of valley and back to ridge will test your endurance. A quiet hike in the hills of southern Indiana. Very enjoyable. The trail took two hours.
