Note: As of Dec 2019, the part of the main trail by the farm house trail is now closed and so is the loop around the lake. This loop in Kokiwanee Nature Preserve is a pleasant escape. With multiple trails to make your adventure as long or short as you choose. The highlight of your adventure is a stop at Kissing Falls in the southeast corner of the preserve.

There is a small parking area with enough room for 4 possibly 5 cars.

This trail is one of my favorites. There are so many different trails connected to this so you can actually go a longer distance. I thought it was pretty easy to follow. Some fallen trees but they were easy to get over. The waterfall is beautiful.

Really fun hike. Bugs were not bad but the water levels were very low in late July which meant most of falls were dry. Nice to come back in the spring to witness the falls in their glory. No trail map on site and poor connection made way-finding difficult but we were with friends that knew the area well so that helped. Some steep sections but nothing too bad.

the trail was overall good, but had to crawl through foliage of a downed tree in order to keep going up a steep hill.

Signage is poor. Back tracked a few times due to it. Overall still a fun hike.

trail is average, waterfall is not dramatic. Not a destination but worth doing if in area.

This was a nice trail but when the other reviewers say poorly marked the mean it. Don’t go to this trail thinking you’ll only do the loop. We did and ended all over the map. If you just want to see the falls there’s a short cut once you start the trail in the left. If you can find the correct parking lot on a map it’s right by the falls.

Trails were very nice though not very well marked. Parking lot was full so parked on street which wasn’t a problem. No restrooms to stop in Wabash first.

Great wooded trail! The waterfalls are active even in mostly dry weather. Fun stops to play in the water.

I went here with two other friends and it was such a great hike! We went after there had been a storm the day before so of course it was muddy but it wasn’t bad. It was a really great hike and I loved it. Definitely would recommend to someone!

Great trail!! Kids loved it! wasn’t to hard some steep inclines but nothing to bad!! Very dog friendly on a leash and wasn’t to busy maybe saw 3 or 4 other people. All in all we had a great time, got to play in the water, and the tails were nice!! Only thing I wished was there was more parking

Nice trail, clean, and has a picnic area. Not much parking so you might have to park on the side of the road and the trail is not marked well. Beautiful scenery!!

My family and I absolutely loved this nature preserve, one of our favorites so far! There was such a variety of nature and terrains. We loved all the different Falls throughout the hike! Lots of fun for the family.

Descent family trail. Poor markings, but not difficult to navigate if you have basic sense of direction. Nice picnic areas, with descent enough difficulty for children 4+ to walk.

Did this trail on 4-5. Lots of people on the trail wanting to get out of the house, pretty trail. The topography rivals Brown county, just not as quite as much elevation change. We’ve hiked the other side of the river, but never the East side. We’ll go back.

Was a nice hike, some areas very muddy and wet due to recent rain but was very enjoyable and peaceful; lots of chirping frogs and beautiful along flowing river and the waterfall was well worth the muddy shoes!

Nice trail(s). Not too easy or hard (moderate) trail. Nice little waterfall in the highlight. Some shelters - picnic areas, high on a hill that over look the Salamonie River. In winter Eagle watching area.

The part of the main trail by the farm house trail is now closed and so is the loop around the lake. There are portapotties on the trial but bring toilet paper! Lol
