This was my first time in Turkey Run and it is an instant favorite! It feels like proper hiking in mostly flat Indiana. Trail #9 is rated as Very Rugged and features some canyoneering. It can be potentially dangerous with a lot of rain, so always check with park authorities for any trail closures or warnings. Lots of lovely fern and other wildflowers. You do get to go up one of the ladders at the junction of Trail #5 and Trail #3. Trail #3 is the most popular trail so that was quite crowded. Lots of fun, highly recommended!
