Good hike for the Midwest. Some elevation change below sea level made it a lot more interesting than I would have thought. Overall, relatively easy trail and a recommended trail for beginners and up. When sunny, trail 3 can be extremely scenic.

Trail #3 and #9 were the most thrilling with hills, rocks, water, and stairs. Lots of pretty views and critters as well.

This is Indiana's Starved Rock, even better. We have heard about this park many years ago, but this is our first-time visit. Enjoyed every minute of it and look forward to our next visit.

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!
