Mounds State Park, located off I-69 east of Anderson, features 10 unique "earthworks" built by a group of prehistoric Indians known as the Adena-Hopewell people. The largest earthwork, the "Great Mound", is believed to have been constructed around 160 B.C. Archaeological surveys seem to indicate it was used as a gathering place for religious ceremonies. Be sure to include time to visit the new Nature Center. The new building includes a bird viewing room, small animal displays and much more.

Nice trail. Don't forget the insect repellent. When the trail crosses the road you need to travel down the road a ways to pick up the trail. If you go directly across the road you switch to trail 4.

very clean, and trails well marked

Great place to get the family together.

Great family park. Easy trails. Picnic tables everywhere. Grills and pavilions. Most of the trails are the six foot wide graded type. My grand kids love it. The dogs love it to. You can wade or fish in the river just off the trails.

Very pleasant hiking trail. Wide, clear and well kept. A little slick in spots with ice on the trail this morning.
