HikingGreat!Rocky

This review is for the general area as there are TONS of trails here. This is my favorite place to hike in Northern IN so far. Every time I go or get on this site, I find a new adventure that I never knew existed in this area before. Every time I go is a whole new adventure. There seems to be a lot more trails than marked here. Last time I went I did get a little lost, the trails can get very steep with roots and rocks, as well as lots of turns and trails that aren't marked. I give 5 stars because I like the challenge of climbing certain paths, and exploring a large area. I know that's not for everyone though, especially if you have kids. So be warned. There are definitely easier trails for the kiddos or your personal preferences, but just be warned what you might run into. Also, it's just beautiful, there are all kinds of waterfalls hidden away and not all are marked. I've lost count how many there are.

This was just a section that i remembered to start recording on our way back up. It is rocky and there are about 97 steps down and back up to get to the parking lot.

Extremely muddy in spots, leaves falling so it's hard to see the roots and the ruts. Trekking poles came in handy. I bailed out early, just to muddy. Beautiful though! Pit toilets by the playground.

Some confusion about the Mount Etna State Recreational Area. No horses allowed there, if you were on horse trails you were in the wrong place. Mnt. Etna S.R.A is on the southeast edge of Salamonie Lake. There is a 13 mile trail (hike, bike, snowmobile) that loops from Mnt. Etna through Lost Bridge East to Lost Bridge West and back. The Bloodroot Trail(s) can be accessed from any of the above locations. You don't have to walk the same trail in and out. A very nice trail, well maintained, mostly wooded. There are also 6 backpack campsites (walk in only) available from the Mnt. Etna location. The trail shown for Lakeview and Boundry Trail is at Salamonie River State Forest on the northwest side of the dam, and yes there are horse trails there. The DNR has maps and info available on their website.

I absolutely love this place. Great fall camping and can't wait to bird watch in the spring. Trails are very well maintained, much to do and see. I highly recommend this place.
