Nice hike but a lot of it was on asphalt which was a downer. I liked the woods portion.

Decent hike close to the city. some up & downs give a good workout. We went to the inside trails.

Really good trail

Great park in Indy. Nice hike down to the river. Nice ruins. Dog friendly. Stone steps. Good area to explore. Saw two fawn playing in the creek, a bonus!

Lovely surprise close to hotel, for a quick 2 miles before hitting the road. Will def return for a long run!

Nice, easy quick trail to spend some quiet time in the woods by the water. You may come across someone fishing.

For Indianapolis I give it a five star. Great for biking, walking or running. For a beginner biker I’ve taken a few brutal spills but this time of year (Nov) it is a great running trail due to less traffic. Doesn’t hurt that it’s also like 10 min from home. Only 20 min drive from downtown on a weekend.

Great city park! Perfect for families, dogs, walking, and running. Especially beautiful during autumn.

fun place! wish the trails we're marked better, but otherwise they are very well maintained.

For being in Indianapolis, the trails are decent, but not nearly as good as Eagle Creek or Fort Harrison. Mosquitoes are a very real problem here. In the winter months it is kind of nice, but in the summer it is virtually impossible because of the mosquitos. So in the winter, if it is close to home, I recommend it. I definitely would not travel over 20 minutes to get here. There are much better alternatives.

Lovely hike. Very few people. Beautiful view of the reservoir particularly in the fall when all the leaves are changing.

Single track that is more geared for bikes than hikers, but still accessible on foot. Nice oasis in the middle of a lot of businesses. Definitely ensure that there has not been recent rain or you will have muddy pathes!

More bikes than runners / Hikers on this trail but its an awesome single track for the whole 6 miles. For almost being in the city this is a great escape.

They are currently expanding the trails here to make the course longer. When I wanted to get in some Vertical this is where I would go! The description says 2.1 miles but you can run the MTB part which connects the two trails to make it a lot longer and more difficult.

Awesome trail, not maintained as well as eagle creek but definitely more difficult with hills and tree jumping. I recommend this trail when Eagle Creek is packed on the weekends there is usually no one on this trail!!

Didn’t get to explore the whole park, but it is beautiful!!

Free water.

First time in Fort Harrison. First time using this app. Enjoyed both. Chipmunks and squirrels and deer, oh my!

Nice little place to go hiking but beware: you’ll spend most of your time worrying about bikers coming up on you rather than relaxing and enjoying the surrounding nature.

One of my fave hikes in the state park. Not generally very busy and a nice place to go on a hike to escape the city life for a bit.

In need of maintenance. The rustic staircase in washed out with no railings and some signs are down. It was flooded today due to yesterday's rain and trail 2 was not passable. Not much elevation change but pretty rooted. I would love to go back when some maintenance has been a done.

Fun trail, a little bit of everything. Narrow, not much room to jump out of the way if you’re a hiker.

Muddy in some spots, not too many people, lots of nature

This is my favorite trail in this state park. You go thru a variety of terrain, including meadows, along creeks, and through winding hills.

I don’t love that bikes are allowed on this trail but it’s best to go the opposite direction of them so you can see them coming head on, rather than being surprised from behind.

As with many trails in this park, you can hear traffic and see the roads. This one isn’t horrible as you’re mostly hearing traffic inside the park, but it’s not the best sound to hear when you’re in nature.

Other than that, it’s my new favorite trail that’s close to downtown Indy.

A nice, 4.5 mile hike to get out of the city and get back into nature.

Reasons I don’t love this trail:
- it’s windy and very back-and-forth so during much of the trail, you see where you’re going and that just isn’t a fun feature for me;
- during some of the hike you can hear the car traffic on 465 and surrounding streets and it takes away from the experience of being in nature.

Very nice trail to hike. Well maintained. Would be slick with moisture due to packed dirt by the bikes.
Was passed by some bikers and runners but the trail is a mostly open with good visibility.

Less technical than the Town Run Trail Park but also more open and the trail a little wider. On the Town Run, you really have to watch for bikes.

My husband and I hiked Camp Creek Trail yesterday with our two dogs. We had a great time! we dont care for asphalt trails but aren't quiet ready for a "difficult" trail yet. This trail had some steeper inclines and spots that were pretty narrow with drop offs right on the other side. It deffinitly was great for giving that backcountry feel but still on a dirt path. We only past one other couple and 3 deer.

I have to go with some other hikers on this one. I gave it only 2 starts for hiking but it would be a great trail for biking.

Well maintained trails that are only wide enough for one person/bike. I was lucky in that every time a bike came on us (all the riders were extremely nice), we had a place to jump off the path. There are many places and blind corners that getting off would have been a issue. The bikes these days are so quiet that they are on you in a blink. We spent the hike listening for bikes which was very difficult the closer you get to 465's noise.

The trail has one direction, so make sure to enter to the Northeast.
