Enjoyable 6 mile loop trail. I took an extra mile loop around the wildlife pen to view the bison herd. Wide and easy to follow even with leaves covering the ground. There is very little elevation change but the tree variety is good. There are multiple little footbridge crossing streams and a nice small lake for fishing. There is a pit toilet at the start of the loop south of the lake and several benches along the route. It took me 2 hours to do the 7 mile route.

This trail is a great workout, and has good views when the leaves are down. It doesn't see much traffic, so the trail can be hard to follow at times and the decent from the top can be very slippery. If you add Trail 1 directly across the street, you end up with a 2.5 mile figure 8.

Well maintained. Beautiful walk with the water in view through the trees the whole time. Some hills to climb which was a plus. Looped 2.2 miles. Bring bug spray. Mosquitoes were out but it was cold and I had on spray so it wasn't bothersome.

You know those trails you overlook cause there short and you think "I'd rather do something with distance" this is not that trail to say that! It Unloads beautiful rock formations from the get go and doesn't stop! There are a few camp sites that look like repellers may use. All in all, a fantastic 1.2mi!!

good hike for just about all conditions and skill levels

This trail is a nice hike with two small loops. This is nice if you have a four legged hiking buddy, who likes to take a poop about ten minutes in to the hike because it gives you the opportunity to take it back to the car so you don't have to carry it the entire time. Overall, this has been my favorite short hike in the fort wayne area.

Closed indefinitely due to 2 deaths from natural sinkholes on the dune itself.

Great place to hike. Lots of up and down and cute bridges for bikers that are kind of fun. Bring a walking stick lots of steep down hills.

There are 12 trails in Mount Saint Francis that can be combined many ways for a variety for different hikes. The place is clean and lightly trafficked during the week. There are several valleys, ridges, and streams, as well as a small lake.

A nice quiet 2 mile out and back with parking at either end. The trail mostly follows old logging roads and is exceptionally peaceful and secluded. The trail head is off Rabbit Hash Road SE, and there is a small parking area at the Potter House off Lambs Ridge Road.

A quick jaunt from I-64, this trail packs in a lot to see and explore in a quick loop. Trail is very well marked and maintained; signage along the road will help you find your way to the trailhead.

This is an easy paved trail in an underused Indy Park. The birds are varied and plentiful in this park that is known for it's nature - woods, grassy areas and wetlands. The trail is good for roller blades, bikes, walking, running and is wheelchair accessible. There are multiple nearby playgrounds for the children and frequent benches/picnic tables to sit.
