HikingGreat!MuddyScramble

I am actually reviewing Trail 7, plus a continuation onto 6, which is what this map actually shows, plus a continuation onto Trail 2 and then Trail 8 on the other side of Clifty Creek. If you do this you can park at the North Gate lot (same as on this map) and do a longer loop hike that takes you to both sides of the canyon and back to your starting point. I don’t know what the mileage was but it was three hours at a steady pace. All Trails should make this an option: 7, 6, 2, 8. Details and tips: it was muddy after a week of rain. Do the switchbacks, not the shortcuts. You will get wet in the creek. Very close to the end the trail is next to the road and seems to end at the creek under a bridge. Don’t take the road! You are actually supposed to cross the creek (more wet shoes) and continue up the other side. Finally, we saw four hikers in the entire day wearing masks. Two words: We’re doomed.

Great trail! Pretty slippery everywhere after the rain. Definitely bring shoes for the mud or waterproof shoes. Brought the dog and he loved it.

Was a nice trail. Pretty easy in my opinion. The history on the tunnel was exciting and the tunnel was the most fun of the whole trail. All waterfalls in the park are dried up and only a trickle. Also the waterfalls aren't interactive which i dont really care for. I'm glad I went but won't be back...

Branched off in too many places in my opinion. Waterfalls in the entire park are just a trickle at this time, pretty dried up. Kind of expected that. Was alright but I won't be going back.

Nice loop and well marked. Plenty of opportunities to walk creek side. Nice lookouts. Bring snacks and hydrate. A lot of shade in the trails. Falls were a mere trickle, but make sure to bring a flashlight or headlamp for the tunnel. Definitely worth it to explore.

This loop is definitely challanging at times, but it hits the two larger waterfalls, the tunnel, and the creek bed. There's a good bit of up and down, and unsteady footing in the creek. But the scenery is interesting and beautiful the entire way. Signage could be improved, so take a map.

First off this is a great Trail; however, it could definitely be marked better. We actually ended up going (off trail) totally by accident, and ended up in a pretty bad situation quickly. We were able to maneuver back to the main trail, but there were some pretty scary moments looking at 80 plus feet straight down.... You fall you die, It's that simple. Definitely a lesson learned for us. Also, there was a lot of trash on the sides. We will definitely go back to explore all Clifty has to offer only more prepared.

Loved the trail around the quarry! Not marked but still pretty easy to navigate. I went on a Wednesday morning and nobody else was on the trail but the beach got busy as I was leaving. Awesome park, made me sad I don't live in the area.

I would really call this the best trail in Indiana. Trails were marked and easy to follow. a little mud here and there, but negligible. the tunnel is pretty cool. The several falls had ok amounts of water, but nothing amazing. the elevation gain is terrific. Will definitely return. 5 stars because it's my favorite in Indiana.

While getting down to the creek and falls were pretty, the path down was one that required careful stepping most of the way. I will frame my whole review by saying we came after a few says of heavy rains and things were muddy and slippery. Once we crossed the creek, the trail on the opposite side had multiple splits with no markers and it was hard to tell where to go. Multiple inclines were really steep, and because it was muddy, we were grabbing at roots and samplings to keep from sliding or falling. It wasn’t fun. Might be easier when dry at least. Even with the lack of trail markers, the loop doesn’t seem that large and we felt confident we’d get back to the road or parking lot.
