Easy trail to start with. Children friendly. Includes play ground area within site view of open pathway

very easy and open. Convenient location.

very easy trail. Easily accessible. Children friendly.

Love biking from downtown to broadripple.

Good trail, brought my pregnant wife along, and had lunch on the waterfall, we loved it.

Fun trail yesterday that is still snow packed. Not too strenuous and there are stairs near the Creek to cut down on erosion. Great place to bring the dog. Took about an hour on the full snow pack just because there were some icy spots. I expect it will be muddy once it melts. Ample parking and not crowded at all.

This hike is really neat! We actually went across and ventured Rose Island. While doing this trail you might as well go check it out. Really neat and historic. As far as trail 3 goes it is a fun hike with great views.

fun in the snow, saw a super cool waterfall and climbed up inside with the ice.

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.

Nice trail to walk dog.

What a great hike. Of course it was all muddy and slippery but the kids and I truly did enjoy ourselves. The trail is marked really well especially since their is still snow on the ground.

Not too bad in the snow. However, it would’ve been hard to follow the trail were it not for someone who had walked it a few days before. I would be careful if you’re planning on hiking right after a snowfall.

Great place to get some nature, even if you are in a time crunch. I can easily get a loop in on my lunch break. But mostly I enjoy taking it slow and exploring with the kids and dog. Definitely is an easy trail, not moderate. You are walking on gravel or mulch, but it might as well be a paved surface.

nice park, great playground and bike trails

Some of the trails are gravel and some are dirt so those can get muddy, but it's a pretty park with good trails that loop for day hiking. There are benches spread out along with picnic tables. Dogs are allowed and there are even some of those pet waste disposal bag dispensers. Unfortunately not all owners pick up after their dogs so you do have to watch out for it on the trails.

Low gap is my go to trail for anywhere near Bloomington Indiana. The 10mi loop trail averages the same elevation change per mile as the Appalachian trail and has a two mile extension in the rock shelter if you're interested in traveling further or wish to see something slightly different from the rest of the trail. I will note that the parking lot on low gap rd is probably best situated for hiking the best this trail offers. I will note that there are dozens of deer that bed inside of this trail, I've seen a puffball mushroom twice the size of my head, and I've seen a jack-o-lantern mushroom bigger than an ice cooler at the rock shelter extension trail head.

I made it to the point where you have to follow the creek bed. Definitely a trail to return to when the weather warms up. Even though I couldn’t hike the entire trail I still had some gorgeous views!

A snow covered hike on a well marked trail. A few creek crossings the resulted in slightly wet boots. Will definitely be back to enjoy this trail in other seasons.

Great park near the Fort, for you, the fam, and the dog!
