Located inside McCloud Nature Park, owned by the Hendricks County Parks Department. About 6 miles of unpaved but well marked trails. None are difficult.

Easy trail some light up and downs across the bridge. I was the only one out there. Very quiet and peaceful. seem like a great place to spot deer and turkey, and Morels in the spring.

I enjoy this park. It doesn't get a lot of traffic. Lots of hiking trails you can string together.

This is a great park. Best kept secret in Hendricks county. Variety of wooded and prairie trails, many that follow the beautiful Big Walnut Creek.

McCloud is Hendricks County's best nature park. There are approximately 6 miles of trails through forest and prairie. There are also regular programs here for the family.
