This trail is a short drive from Indianapolis in Fort Harrison State Park. It's a great option to explore the upland woods and ravines. In the fall, the woods are exceptionally beautiful. Bring proper footwear, the trails can get muddy in the northern parts.

Every trail deserves a second chance. Nice and dry, decent flow, and a couple drops and jumps. Well packed dirt as well.

Not enough reward for the climbs and lacks berms so you can’t go too fast. Hard to navigate junctions.

This is one of my favorite trails to run at Ft Ben! Run “against traffic” on days bikers are out, makes it easier for all

Only small portions of this trail are closed, a small section at the eastern start and an optional section at the western end. Both for forest rehabbing. GREAT easy to moderate trail. New foliage and felled trees to tackle.
