Very little mud for as wet as spring is! Creek crossings are easy and keep things exciting. Great Brown County geography without the buzz of the state park. Will absolutely be back!!! FYI: no bathroom at the trailhead.

HikingMuddy

A little muddy, but not nearly as bad as I expected it to be even though the trail does cross the creek multiple times. Plan to get wet without waterproof shoes. Would love to check it out again in the spring. Trail was well maintained and easy to follow. Nice preserve!

HikingMuddy

Was my first time on trail. Can easily see this being a muddy trail at times but was mostly frozen at this point. Missed the North Trailhead & took the spur North to catch the trail.

HikingGreat!

My new favorite trail in Indiana! Lovely views, very well-marked and well-maintained, and plenty of access to water for canine companions. Well-traveled but not too busy, this is a perfect short day hike to get out of Indy and enjoy the beauty of southern Indiana.

Cool trail. I would love to see it in the spring with some water flowing in the creek. Scenic ridges and hills. Very peaceful
