Fascinating geological site. You can get up close to observe parallel rock layers that break and fold and are quite colorful. The trail is quite steep in a couple places and though safe if you are cautious, I would not bring a young child here unless well disciplined. The arch itself is small and can be muddy.
Well worth driving a distance...an unusual site, which I found by accident, spotting on a map.

Great moderate trail took the Cub Scout troop and they loved it.

Very cool trail! Not a very big area, but full of features. Definitely will revisit again.

nice trail. Would rate it as moderate myself. I'm overweight and not in the best of shape and had very little difficulty. There were some sections that offer a little bit of a challenge though. Overall I really enjoyed my time on the trail.

I hiked this on my 61st birthday. I have to say I'm not a real hiker; I'm more of a person who strolls through the woods. I also have to say that I am obese and clumsy. Once, I tripped over a pine cone and broke my wrist in 4 places. Therefore, I found going down to the water pretty scary stuff. It was well worth it; truly beautiful, and my dog and I had it to ourselves. Going up wasn't scary, but my heart was sure pounding!

Hiked the lower portion of this trail starting at Fort Ouiatenon park. Trail begins at Fort parking lot. This was the only public access I saw on 2 mi lower portion I hiked. First 1/2 mi of trail heading North was paved bike path running right alongside South River road. The trail then turns into the woods and runs alongside the Wabash river. Trail here was dirt and sand, sometimes like walking on a beach. It was moist (but not muddy) even though it hadn't rained for at least a week. Imagine it's muddy in rainy seasons. Trail is fairly level and well marked. Scenery is unremarkable, mostly trees and very tall weeds. Occasional views of the river but usually the river is hidden behind tall weeds. Perhaps it would be more visible in early spring or winter. It was a little buggy, but not unpleasant.

My kids and I did the loop out to the beach. It was very nice. The trail is mostly stairs and boardwalk. A few cool observation points that look out over a view. Nice places to stop for a snack. Overall, nice, but a little short.

Sweet trail, few issues. Those with heights fears, like me, will not like the bridge at Trailhead Park, or the Deer Creek Overlook, but a clean, pleasant hike! I hiked the Robbins, Smith Dairy and Happy Jack Trails in a quick visit.

Short, but nice trail (approx 3 miles total). I think it is more of a moderate than hard trail. Path follows a scenic river with some great rock wall formations. Some elevation and climbing, but manageable. A couple narrow spots that would prohibit small kids. Highlights are honeycomb rock and devils backbone.

Poor directions from park/parking. Mostly on city street. Few signs. Not welcoming.

This trail does not stay stagnant for long. Stairs, bridges, hills all come at you randomly. The highway and a railroad are nearby so those sounds are mixed in with nature.

Easy trail. Lots of spiders.

I love the France park! one of my favorite places to go!

Took my dog out there this summer. He's a small dog and he did just fine - he really enjoyed playing in the river when we got down around Devil's Backbone. It's beautiful and quiet. Moderately trafficked.

beautiful scenery and a lot to explore and see. I'd rate this as more moderate but there a quite a few stairs and inclines. Paths are marked and clear.

This trail is a true hidden gem. one of the prettiest in Indiana.

easy walking

Beautiful trail.

Did this hike with my four year old, a seven year old and 8 month old. We enjoyed it. The scenery is beautiful, and the loop connects to other hikes in the park. Easy hike, didn't see anyone else the entire time.

Beautiful park with nice views of wildlife and scenery. We went on a cloudy day so the beach was empty. The trail map given to us at the entrance had been copied many times it appeared so it was pretty much impossible to read. The trails are not marked well and at times we had no idea where we were. Regardless of all that it’s a beautiful area and I will return. One more thing is they need to clean up some of the trash on the trails from losers who leave cans and bottles. Sad.
A little TLC and this park would be 5 stars.

The whole 12.8 was open today and was an enjoyable hike. It’s a lot sandier than I expected so it’s a good idea to wear ankle socks or even gaiters if you’re intense! The trail is mostly flat but there are some small, exciting elevation changes within 2 miles of battleground. Bathroom and water stops accessible along the way.

Second time doing this trail. There were three trees down when i went to be prepared to walk/climb over them if you go within the next week or so. I love the scenery of this hike. Very easy but can be made more difficult by going off trail.

Trail is very easy. Intersects with a lot of other trails in and around Delphi Indiana. Also runs through the Canal Park which features an interactive Museum about the Wabash and Erie Canal.

Great Trail to find your stride and keeps you on your toes.

Stairs were a little rough at the start but loved looking at all the birds and flowers.

Great trail with some good views! With the exception of climbing over two 4-5 foot rock bluffs and one steep downhill climb the rest of the trail was moderate.

We went for the day with our two dogs. We all loved it and great trails and beautiful views. We went swimming at the beach as well at the waterfall. The only down side was it was super busy at the beach and the waterfall, but the trails were pretty empty. They are a little over grown too. Overall experience was great though.

This was a great hike! Would definitely go back.

great little trail with interesting views. South trail not so much
