Trail needs maintenance in the wooded sections. Muddy boggy areas that could be improved with gravel, etc. Outer loop trail going down to Ohio River is marked as a hiking trail. This part of the trail I would rate as beginner/intermediate because of some sharp/ tight turns with lots of roots. Proved difficult for my wife who crashed twice on this section. Return trip is marked as bike trail, much more doable , but muddier.

Awesome trail for Newburgh and Evansville- expect to get muddy and get off the trail due to flooding multiple times, but overall worth it and definitely going back!

Went mountain biking and tried to do the outer loop but the back end of the trail was washed out. Many of the trails were not well marked and extremely muddy. If this trail was dried out when I went there this trail would have been great, beautiful scenery.

Nature trips

Nice patch of green space to walk or run or bike without having to drive far. Can easily hit these trails instead of pavement after work. Flat and easy trails, depending on the season. Levee trail is always good if you just want to run and get miles in while giving your knees a rest from pavement running. Decent amount of wild life. I've seen deer from time to time. I ran at night and heard, then saw, a small pack of coyotes, which was surprising. They immediately fled when a couple of us approached (they were near my car at the boat ramp). I didn't feel threatened, it was cool to see them after being on the trails dozens of times not knowing they were around. I would advise not to night trail it alone and keep pets on-leash just to be safe though. The downside is that the trails aren't marked well, but it's not a huge trail system anyways, you can easily wander out to one of the three parking areas (angel mounds lot, angel mounds boat ramp lot, or gravel trail head by the interstate). The other negative is that the trails need to be repaired/better maintained. Half of the year the place is just mud, if not flooded over completely from the river (south end of trails). I'd say from snowfall until July, parts of the trail are giant mud pits. July through leaf fall the trails get a little narrow in places with thorny overgrowth, especially on a bike. October through December are probably the best months to go if you go south of the levee trail.

Took my 5 yr old daughter wife and 2 dogs to do the outer loop. It was a very easy leisure stroll. I would recommend this loop for anyone in Evansville that just wants to get out of town for a bit.

Took me a while to even find the trailhead since there aren't any signs. The trails themselves aren't too bad. I took my 2 dogs. I will say that both times we've hiked here, I've had to spend time removing burs from their coats afterwards. The trails are not marked when they split off into different directions. Wish they had better signage for this place. Luckily it isn't a huge park so you will get back to your car eventually.

Decent trails with no real elevation. I did the River loop, with outer loop(3 miles) et have also done the wetlands loop. it can get muddy. I have always seen deer on my hikes here.

Close to where I'm living now. The back trails allow my dog some country-feel since we live in an apartment complex. Most of the trails seem rather muddy no matter what time of the year you go so wear shoes you don't love-love. The main drag though is grass and on an incline so no worries there but then again it's a short trail by itself. The angel mounds gated front part doesn't allow dogs so can't say how that is.

Hiking

I've walked this trail twice. The first with a group of Volksmarch walkers for exercise. The trails are poorly marked once you start having options to take. We didn't have a trail map and probably walked parts of all three trail systems in there. Me and a friend had a tracking app on and was how we finally got back out but we did over 5 miles and had people lost in several areas. Yesterday I went out with someone more experienced in hiking and introduced my dog to his first hike. He is obedience trained so I let him off lead with the other dog along for the hike. An hour and a half into the pleasant hike, my dog picked up on deer starting to move and took off on their trail. After 2 hours of searching the woods, he finally showed up where we had parked. Not really making it into my favorite place list.

This is a good place to walk the family dog, but not the best for a day in the great outdoors. I hate to negatively rate any trail, but those at Angel Mounds were short, overgrown with green briars and itch weed, and smelled a bit like a decomposing animal. On second thought, take the family dog far away from Angel Mounds.

Angel Mounds is composed of three different trail systems. The first is a walking trail inside the protected historic site. A second mowed walking path to the right of the main building and parking area. And a third multi-use trail system on the north and south of the levee. The third section is the main trail system which is mostly flat with two bridge crossings. this area is.currently being maintained by Evansville Mountain Bike Association who are plaining more upgrades to the trail system. This is good trail to bring beginning mountain bikers to learn basic skills and get used to riding off road. It is also good for night riding and xc training. Parking is available at the Angel Mounds Boat Ramp as well as at the former Knight Township Fire station, and a small gravel area near the I-164 overpass.

First to Review

Disappointing trail. Won't go back. Trailhead parking is at Angel Mounds. To the right of the buildings is a shelter with vending machines. Go to the right and follow the trail to the woods. Trail is wide enough for you and another to ride side by side. Trail has a few variations. We rode everyone in 15 minutes. About 2 miles. Short loop goes back to parking lot. Other trail connects with dog/walking trail. Not worth the gas or time. Will not return.
