Located in the beautiful hills of Brown County off Highway 46, you will especially enjoy the variety offered in Indiana's largest state park, including nearly 20 miles of roads, with numerous scenic vistas. Comfortable accommodations at the rustic Abe Martin Lodge, large campgrounds, hiking trails, mountain bike trails, interpretive services, and extensive horse riding facilities are some of the things that make Brown County State Park popular year round.

This was a nice easy hike. Most of the trail was well kept, but the west side of the lake was much less travelled and seemed to be a bit more overgrown. The trail back up to the nature center was the most difficult part of the whole thing. If you come from the Strahl Lake parking lot, there are a fair number of steps to get up to the lake.

A nice hike with a couple of challenging climbs. It is best to hike this trail in a clockwise direction. This allows you to take a short rest at the CCC shelter before finishing the last quarter mile back to the trailhead.

A great hike with a number of steep inclines. The lookout building makes for a nice resting point.

This trail has a step ascent that makes swift walking difficult for those with breathing obstruction.

Great trail! Good mix of elevation to keep you interested. Started at the lake and did the extension and loop and back. Took just over 3 hours.
