This short loop drops into a slot canyon surrounded by large stands of hemlock and oak forests. Half way through you walk under a massive rock house and on your way back out pass by a nice waterfall.

The falls are almost dried up at this time, down to a few trickles, still about my favorite trail, love the canyon and all the cliff views!

it was amaze-balls.

definitely one of the best places I've been in indiana!! It's been very dry for months now and there was no water anywhere when I was there.
However that allowed me to get to a lot of places that may not have been easily accessed had it been flowing.

not a hard hike at all, a lot of elevation change but nothing too crazy but you definitely need to be able bodied to do the whole loop.

Short scenic hike along a creek that has carved out very cool rock formations and caves. Well maintained trail.

Love this trail. Best to go a couple of days after a good rain so the waterfalls are at their peak. Easy hike and great scenery though the entire hike.

Great place for young kids that like to explore. Multiple waterfalls. Most of the trail is shaded too. With little ones (and even big ones) you'll want to remember to bring extra clothes for the car ride home as they will probably get a little wet and muddy.
