Great relaxing trail.

It was pretty muddy because it had rained a lot during the week, but this is still a great park close to Indianapolis.

Very Difficult to navigate. If it wasn't the winter time and the trail wasn't packed down, I'd have no clue where I'm going. The trails also merge in clusters, and there's no way to identify which trail goes where.

I'd give this trail 2 out of 5 starts, but evidently some people navigate much better than I can... Pictures online look great and I must've missed it! Ultimately, the "views" aren't worth the research this trail takes.

I’ve only visited two other parks in Indiana, and this one is by far my favorite. It’s far enough from the road that you don’t see asphalt.
Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of markers. You kinda have to navigate yourself well. I ended up at the side of the road cos I followed a mountain bike trail and i thought there would be another in. I just walked on the side of the road until I got back to the car which worked out cos it was a mile and it was hot.
Will be going back and finishing what I had started.

Really great trails, from winding up and down trails on the bluff to scenic walk down by the White River. My new favorite place to hike on the west side of town. But definitely built with bikes in mind. Some horse trails too. There's more than just the loop that is shown on this app. A couple seem to follow the river to parts unknown. So get a map or GPS. Go out and explore!

Great location had a great time with the pup. Trails not marked clearly but you won't have a difficult time finding yourself. Will definitely be going back.

Lots of mud in low spots by river. Wish I'd had a camera as plants and flowers are beginning to bloom. Must be a beautiful place when leaves are up. Will definitely hike again.

Check your seasons before you go, I went when it was spring. It was mostly mud and under water.

Good Trails for a place close to the city. I was very pleased with my visit.

An "ok" city trail, meaning it just feels like you're walking in someone's wooded neighborhood. You'll often see (and hear) people who are loud and rowdy and that just reminds you that you are right in the middle of a big city.

Every time I go here, I see something different. There are many trails here. So you can make it as long or short as you like. There are more bikers than hikers. So be careful. Horses are also on the trails. Watch your step!

Very pretty trails. Not many people around when we went on the weekend. Occasional biker dude who almost runs you over around a bend. A little flatter than I was expecting so not very hard. But still loved the experience.

Good starting and experienced trails I brought my 10 year old nephew and he loved it there are some jumps but on the bigger trails I love it there

This place is awesome. There are always a ton of fellow mountain bikers on the trails, pushing me to go harder and faster trying to keep up with the pro's. lots of downhill as well as climbing. Don't fall off the ridge to the river! great jumps and fast downhills from the middle starting point. lots of variety for all skill levels. Can go around different paths for hours and you choose the path.did I mention free

Unbelievable that this strong of a hiking trail is this close to Indianapolis. It was an experience close to Brown county but only 15 minutes away as opposed to an hour and 15 minutes away. I was hiking with my dog. There's lots of mountain bikers. But they were very courteous and polite no issues at all.

gorgeous day for my dog & me!

A little too busy with mountain bikers but it's close to home. Overall, a nice place to bike, trail run, fish, and day hike.
