Well-maintained and well-trafficked trail that’s good for hiking or trail running. Definitely would consider this to be more easy than moderate

Park was very nice and plan to return for other trails. The orange trail was marked pretty clear, fairly easy, and not busy at all. We did not pass a single person during the entire hike.

Nice hike through bird sanctuary and through woods.

Loved this trail!

Awesome trail through the middle of two lakes. Lots of bird life, and the E & SE portion of the loop is nicely elevated for larger views.

Park at the Orninthology Center. A few parts of the lake portion are submerged, do be ready to walk on boards & rocks. Mostly the trail is comfortably wide and solid for walking.

Just discovered this trail on All Trails app and I live close enough to walk there! What a great trail for hiking or trail running. Lots of variation,ups and downs to keep your blood pumping, over many fallen trees on the trail, under them as well. Today the trail was muddy in several spots, difficult at times to know if you were on the actual trail, no markings.....but all that said, I can’t wait to get back over there and do it again!

I live near here so an annual pass is a must! This is a beautiful park 15 minutes from Downtown Indy, though you’d never know you were so close because of the setting! I run this trail often, it’s about 6.5 miles if you complete the loop. You have some slight elevation, run beside a lake, lots of variation. I’d rate it as a very enjoyable somewhat moderate trail. If you’re experienced more of an easy rating. It’s definitely worth your time to visit Eagle Creek Park and the Red Trail is my favorite of all!

I hiked the Red and Orange trails. Both were nice, but I definitely enjoyed the Red more. The park overall is beautiful and has a good variety of trails! It was pretty busy when I went, but since I’m a solo female hiker I didn’t mind. I will definitely go back.

Trail follows the western shoreline if Eagle Creek Reservoir. Trail maps are not available from Indy Parks. Outstanding views of the reservoir. Some low lying areas are extremely wet. Times of heavy rains will probable make portions of the trail underwater. Lots of blowdown on the trail.

Great hiking close to Indy. Nothing rugged, flat trail, nice scenery.

A superb loop combining various trails within the heart of Eagle Creek City Park. This loop takes you through some of the best parts and combines the trails in an efficient and even fun manner.

A superb loop trail that combines all of the trails into one nice perimeter loop. It turned out to be a perfect 10km. I'd recommend parking on the south side as it makes for an easy starting point. Although, any parking lot will do. The part along the highway isn't super ideal, but it's a good trail, with the walk around the lake being a highlight. This will get you off of the main walker's routes, so enjoy!

Nice wooded path that hugs the reservoir. Some wild flowers in bloom along water. Trail needs some small clean up in certain areas off path, but close to trail . I bet early morning would give walkers more bird life to view. Great city hike!!

This is such a great trail. You can connect into other trails or just follow this one. This is actually about 6.5 miles.

A quiet trail that makes you forget you're right in the city. I like to run this trail. Closer to 6 miles. Almost 7 of you add on the loop by the 71st Street entrance.

Nice trail. I love that I goes around the bird sanctuary. I saw several kinds of birds that I had not seen before.

A well marked wooded trail in a fantastic city park. Lots of hiking trails at Eagle Creek. If you are visiting the area, be sure and sign up to complete the ropes course that you will pass through on this hike or stop by the nature center and sit out on the deck over looking the lake.

Love this trail. I use it as a workout/training trail. I hike this trail at least 4 days a week and it never ceases to amaze me.

Took our dog on this trail. Very muddy and the maps aren't extremely clear. Easy to navigate none the less.
