Watch out this trail is under construction so hard to complete the loop right now.
Don’t know how but my garmin GPS recorded 2.8 miles not as advertised, other than that awesome views.

We started the trail clockwise. It is a easy hike on a stone paved walkway for a little bit then you will see the stairs to go down and squeeze thru the rock formations..then the trail is a dirt path which had a little mud because it had rained the day before. But not too bad at all! Loved to see the huge rock cliffs beside us as we hiked. It’s a easy peaceful hike only saw one other person so not too crowded!

Beautiful trail. Easy hike , enjoyed the colors of fall

Trailer was enjoyable

loved the view of the lake if you take the straight bit off the loop and then double back. rock formations were awesome. go in fall when the trees are in color - it's breathtaking!

Wonderful Trail! So much to explore and to see. I really enjoyed hiking this trail along with the other joining trails. Will be hiking this trail more and more!

Beautiful! Recommend taking the outer trail, definitely worth it and fun to explore.

Great trail! Beginning half of trail is on a man made rock path. Very easy to navigate. Then trail continues into rock formations producing fantastic views. Second half of loop is on an incline. Nothing too difficult. Wish trail were longer!

Best views in Indiana. Nice rolling hills great for a day hike or to venture out with the family.

Trail was easy to follow and mostly flat. Dipped down to cross the water (summer hike so water was down and no issue) and had to climb up a little, but that was the worst of it. I could see the climb out with sweaty hands and wet not-well-treaded boots as a slip hazard. I'd say the rest of the trail was easy to moderate. I did not anticipate the number of snakes. I'm from Indiana and have hiked there more than anywhere and only seen snakes twice out of maybe a hundred hikes. I saw three 5-8' long black racers (educated guessing) on this relatively short hike. One was sunning itself in the middle of the trail. I'm fine with snakes, but my hiking companion was not. Will be hard to drag them out to this place a second time. haha

A good one in Shawnee, great rock formation!

It was fun, a little challenging and about the right distance for a moderate hike. There was only one place where the direction sign was missing that kept us from staying on path but thanks to the AllTrails map we corrected rather quickly.

Defintely do this one, you can also hike over to Pounds Hollow from this trail.

A pretty decent trail. Nice for a day I want to spend in the woods. Be coming back soon to walk the whole trail. Had to leave do to time. Backpacking, water, food and some good friends are a plus for walking this trail.

another stunning park!. Shawnee national forest ceases to amaze me.

Definitely making another trip back!!! We could spend all day here and still not see everything!! We loved it! Nice trails and beautiful rock formations! We will definitely go back soon!

Very few people at the park on a Monday morning. Beautiful trees and vegetation. Gentle, rolling hills

Path is well maintained around top loop, and is what you would expect from an easy walk in the woods. When you reach the staircase that takes you down to the ox-lot cave the landscape drastically changes. There are extraordinary rock formations, sheer cliffs, and exciting small caves. You could spend an hour in this area alone exploring all the rock formations. Overall the loop took us 1.5 hours with lots of exploring.

Nice trail

Very cool hike, learned a thing or two from the signs too.

The trail itself is a little bit boring and nowhere near hard. I know the trail is rated as hard, but it is easy to moderate at its best. I would have given it 5 stars if there would have been water in the river. It was very dry so it wasn’t so beautiful. 3 stars isn’t really what I wanted either, but it won’t allow me to do 3,5. If you are afraid of spiders, now is not the time to hike this trail as there are spiderwebs all over the place. I almost turned around after constantly getting webs in my face. I eventually walked with a stick to destroy all the webs. I went off trail at one point to walk along the dry riverbed and to do some rock climbing. That made it much more exiting. I combined this trail with the natural bridge and the white trail. 5 miles in total.

What a great app indispensable out in the Shawnee. Simply pick a trail and it links up with googl to get you there!

I always enjoy the trails here. You can walk through a creek that ends by turning into a small waterfall and swimming hole or walk the many trails and see beautiful scenery and caves.

I enjoyed hiking this trail it offered some challenges due to the slippery rocks and stream crossings. It started out easy enough until you come to the first stream crossing and the rocks. It was somewhat a task to get back up to the trail. Good traction shoes are a must here. The trail than get obscured a little after the stream crossing and one can find themselves gone astray from the trail, that happened to me. I found the trail again and the rest of the hike was no issue.
