Nicely maintained, well-marked and fairly wide Land Between the Lakes trail. Large, safe parking area. 4/5s of the hike is an enjoyable, but sort of routine, walk in the woods. A lot of spider webs, so grab a stick. I did the loop clockwise. After about 1.25 miles, you emerge onto the shorelines of Lake Barkley and Honker Lake. Nice water views. I saw several deer and beavers. The final two miles look like they could be seasonally marshy, but there are bridges over the inlets and low spots. The entire trail is dry and hard-packed in summer. A few gentle climbs with some improved steps. Nothing technical. Recorded distances vary because of marginally different routes back to the parking lot and/or nature center. Roughly 4.5-4.8 miles r/t. Worth it.

Hiked this trail on 9/13/18, it was a good trail, not difficult, well marked and had some cool rock formations. We had the place to ourselves, we didn't see a single other person the whole day.

Beautiful scenery!! Trail was a slight challenge, which I love!

Beautiful trail!

The map provided by Indiana DNR clearly says you can’t connect to 7 from 2, but we were really hoping the map markings from All Trails were right. It’s hard to make yourself go back the way you came after making it to the falls!

great exercise, obviously will hear traffic at points but it's in the city, watch out for mountain bikers. I'll be doing this trail again

Such a gem! The trail to the overlook is on a small clearing in a field. Definitely an easy hike for individuals with mod experience. Great for individuals interested in increasing difficulty of hiking! Quaint little area. Great place to pack a lunch & sit on the rocks! Be sure to turn right & not left onto a labeled trail! The two tracks can also take you much further (wasnt looking at the map- oops!) than where you need to turn right! When we went the road was closed, so be prepared for both!

Great for an easy hike. We had 4kids ages 1-5. Only did 1/2 (about 2 miles) of the loop and then took the road back to the parked car. Falls were dry. Many other beautiful things to enjoy along the walk. Hot summer day, but the temp was perfect in the woods. As a side note, we saw a rattlesnake while driving to the trailhead.

if you're ready for some work 8 to 2 is where it's at. the work comes in getting down to 2 from 8 and the climb back to 8 from 2 is rough. otherwise this is a great choice and worth the waterfall at the end of 2. go past the signs, it's worth it.

More of a peaceful walk than a hike, and no view of any real “falls”. However it was enjoyable

Good trail and super easy but I will admit I was expecting a decent size fall. It was still fun though.

This trail was beautiful. It took us an hour and 50 minutes to complete. We would highly recommend it.

Great rock formations and plants make this an amazingly interesting trail. If you’re in shape it’s not difficult at all, and it’s well marked at all intersections. But be careful to avoid informal hiker-created side trails. There are many high cliffs in the dense undergrowth not far from the trail.

Just completed the south side of the trail with two of my four Shih Tzu companions. This part of the trail was much easier to follow than the north side that I did on my previous visit and took less than two hours. Well worth the effort.

Absolutely beautiful trail. Incredible rock formations, beautiful wild flowers, gorgeous falls. It's well marked and maintained. It took us just under four hours, and that's including an hour and a half at the falls. The shade is great too! Take a stick because we went through at least 30 spider webs!

The directions here take you to a small cemetery but you can continue to drive up this gravel road to get to the actual trailhead, look for it along the right side of the road and park off in the grass. It's an easy trail with gorgeous views at the end.

We enjoyed kayaking and then hiking to the waterfall. Very pretty. I did unknowingly get into some poison ivy so be aware that it’s along the path to the waterfall.

The hike was 2.2 miles but felt like forever! The beginning of the trial was alright but then it got boring. Also the end result wasn’t really worth the hike in the first place. My friends and I went on August 2nd and in result to that one of them got Rocky Mountain spotty fever,( which is deadly if not caught early). We all got ate up my several seed ticks. It’s not a terrible trail but I won’t be going back.

Really enjoyed this trail. Especially liked the beaches by the lakes, great place to stop and have a snack while enjoying the views.

my family and I had a magnificent time. wonderful views at the bridge. take plenty of water it gets hot. I wouldn't call the trail easy either. would love to do it again sometime but I want to try some other trails in the area first.

trail 2 is excellent, best trail there especially because it's low traffi,. there is no trespassing signs near the waterfall but no one ever stops us from going to it, and it's safe. my gf and I take trail 2 as warm ups before doing long backcountry packing trips.

It was a nice trail well maintained, easy to access. Great for a Sunday hike close to the city!!

Great but long, if you take trail 2 the creek way the rocky trail both beautiful and challenging

Great for a quick loop to get some exercise while in town.

Easy but interesting hike with lots of little rocks passages and foot bridges to make things interesting. Some views of the valley and Harrod's creek. Passed by two swinging benches in shaded areas. Friendly passerby.

Amazing spot hidden in Lexington!

Very cool trail and scenery. We only walked to arch-did not do whole loop.
