You'll marvel at the natural geologic wonders of this beautiful park as you hike along its famous trails. Nestled along State Road 47 southwest of Crawfordsville, you'll want to explore the deep, sandstone ravines and walk along the stands of aged forests, and enjoy the scenic views along Sugar Creek. Visit the Colonel Richard Lieber Cabin which commemorates the contributions of the father of Indiana's state park system.

This is the trail that my children compare all other trails to. This trail is rugged with rock slopes and ridges to bounce off and climb up. There if a creek that runs through a good portion of the trail and admittedly it is just good fun.

Fun short hike. My youngest kid is 5 and he was fine doing this trail unassisted.

If you combine all of the trails together, the trails are great. If you're individually picking them apart, three stars for each as they're too short. Tackle them all at once and they offer a five-star experience when done together.

Terrific trail. Gets pretty congested in parts, but fun.

Did this trail on 9/16/2017. Fairly easy trail. Scenic and much less populated then the left trails

Great hike today on trail 3! You will definitely get muddy and wade through ankle deep water at times. I switched early to my water shoes. Also, if you want to go DOWN the ladders go to the right at the trailhead. If you prefer to go UP, go to the left. Some areas don't have great markings as to which fork to take to stay on trail 3. We also got stuck at the ice box having missed the staircase up and out to the suspension bridge which is directly to the left of the descent to the ice box and is easily missed. Lots of stairs on this trail. Beautiful, all-terrain hike though!

I love this park and trails! One of the first hikes I ever did and still at the top of my list! Plenty of rocks, ladders and watery obstacles to traverse here. If you like your hikes to keep you entertained, this is a great one for you! Wear your waterproof hikers, make sure your phone is charge you will want to take a few pictures.

Beautiful park, clean facilities and awesome trails. Can't wait to visit again!
