Hiked loop around and back to make it 2 miles. Signage is confusing. Definitely no pets or dogs allowed despite what this app says. Saw a small herd of 8 deer.

Longer and a little harder due to elevation but nothing to extreme, the trail drops down to the valley floor and walks part way along the creek. Woods offer large trees and huge grape vines. Nice trek especially in the early spring, when the leaves are just starting to form. Allows you to still see the terrain but still see green. Birds are a big part of this park and have many activities surrounding them. Chirping through out this trek makes it especially nice.

Great fall color! This one was almost too hilly for the younger kids hiking with me.

Nice day hike for the family inside of Audubon State Park. Peaceful and easily accessed. Connects with multiple loops if you want to carry on.

Nice 20min hike...there is a bit of an elevation change, but definitely doable

Nice, fairly easy hike. We got to the bridge and started to follow the rest of the trail but it was overgrown with weeds so the kids wouldn't finish. We turned around and crossed the bridge and finished that trail. The front of the KY Coffee Tree hike is all downhill.

Simple urban trail. Does have some nice specimans of the trails namesake, the Kentucky coffee tree.
