When I was working in this area I found this park. There are many different paths you can take. It is mostly woods walking but for the most part the trails are in decent condition. After a rain or even a few days after the trails can be pretty muddy. I liked this trail. Not crowded. The park pass was not expensive the county parks here in MI.

It was a very easy trail to walk and the terrain wasn't difficult at all.

Popular spot for field trips if you grew up in Indiana. Fox Island features Indiana's beautiful wetlands and wildlife, with a very friendly and informative staff. Great place for picnics and beautiful walks.

beautiful park. watch north side right now... trails turn into dead end into swamp. bug spray is necessary. you can adjust and take upper dune or lower dune trails instead

Beautiful park. Beware... some northern parts are unpassable.... that water body on nw corner of park is spread thru entire north side. if trail gets muddy or is untended and high grass, turn around....it will only get worse and turn into dead end in swamp pond. otherwise, beatiful trails, but bring bug spray!

short easy trails make this a good place for a leisurely afternoon hike. The dog area that gives dogs access to the pond is the real highlight to this well maintained nature preserve.

I've only been to this trail once, but I loved walking in and seeing a dog unleashed flying into the lake for his ball. Need more places to take dogs and allow them to be free since not all of us live in the country. The trails are pretty easy and short, which is a good thing I guess to some people.

Easy trail. Not bad for being so close to downtown. Saw a few snakes and frogs. Surprisingly not many birds. I'd do it again.

did this in april. it's a good nearby hike. the whole loop is closer to 8 miles. although parts were close to impassable due to high water. all in all a good hike.

A favorite little gem. Great spot to bring the kiddos to expose them to the joy of hiking. Got to sneak in a December hike thanks to some unseasonably warm weather!

Great little gem so close to the city! Summer great hiking (our dog loves it too) and the winter provides some freak cross country skiing or snowshoeing!

I had been avoiding this spot for sometime. I had just assumed that it was flat and lame. I was pleasantly surprised. This is a great little hike so close to Fort Wayne. There is a winter hiking trail that seems to circle the entire park. It appears that it becomes over grown with grass and weeds in the summer. The trails are excellently maintained. And plenty of signage at every junction. We encountered a lot of wild life. Do know that it is $2 /person. But I say it's worth it to help maintain this beautiful preserve.
