Super easy trail though most is near the creek so flooding can be a big problem depending on the time of year. Be prepared for it to be closed or very muddy. Other than that, very easy, wide, flat trail.

The trail is totally flooded today. Come prepared for a nice walk on the road. Wait till the waters recede and I’ll give it 5 stars !

Really nice trail! Loved it! Well marked, well traveled. Two spots, very small area, where ice was still present. Ground was frozen so it was not muddy.

Fun trail yesterday that is still snow packed. Not too strenuous and there are stairs near the Creek to cut down on erosion. Great place to bring the dog. Took about an hour on the full snow pack just because there were some icy spots. I expect it will be muddy once it melts. Ample parking and not crowded at all.

A fun mix of trails at Fort Harrison State Park. This nice Oct morning had good weather, well kept trails and about a dozen deer, including 2 bucks! The less traveled route is my favorite - narrow, sharp turns and a few small inclines.

A really nice and well maintained trail.

The map shown here is not quite Fall Creek, it starts out at Fall Creek and loops onto Camp Creek Trail, looking at the map from the park here: https://www.in.gov/dnr/parklake/files/ftharrison_trail.pdf
This is a nice, easy trail that follows the water, you can see the disc golf course across the creek, and can actually walk across if the water is low. There are many side trails that are unmarked. Great for an easy hike.

It is our favorite trail. We also try to grill out at one of the outdoor grills and picnic tables. We bring our dog Dash with us, and take a couple different routes every time. Beautiful!

Nothing unique about the trail, but plenty of people were there. Great for dogs to get to swim and socialize since they also have a dog park

A great hike at Fort Benjamin that makes you forget you're still in the city.

I like hiking at Ft. Ben because it has paved and unpaved trails- which means you can go for a walk in pretty much any weather. The hills are fairly moderate- not too crazy but steep enough to keep things interesting. Good for biking, hiking, fishing, and picnicking!

Took my first hike in years this past weekend. We chose this trail because it's close to home. Great atmosphere! Nice clear paths. I took time to climb a few of the steep hills along the way. Trail is also parallel to the water. Great views. We went early morning so not much traffic on the trails. Can't wait to go again

We hiked the Fall Creek Trail past Duke pond and back on Camp Creek Trail. There was a moderate crowd, and a sunny day. The trail is well marked and can support a moderate level of traffic. Nice views of fall creek from some wooden observation platforms. This is a good hiking trail and better for hiking than the Lawrence Creek trail. I think it is the best hiking trail in Fort Harrison State Park.
