Great quiet hike. Wish I would have been more prepared physically for the multiple elevation changes. But that is on me not the trail.

Good mountain bike trail for Indiana. Mountain bike trail is on the west side of the park. The main loop was about 4-5 miles but you can take deviations and make the ride longer or more difficult. If you take the deviations, it can be a little confusing what trail you are on. Some technical parts of the trail were fun and difficult at times. Bugs were bad in the evening! Trail was mostly all shaded. Mud was not bad. Well maintained trail and no down trees.

I loved this trail ! It was beautiful and noticeably cooler as we were down by the river; than up top. It was definitely overgrown and the trails a bit hard to find as it’s not well marked but nothing to be worried about as it’s easy to find your way around. Overall, well worth it.

NOT “easy”! Moderate to Hard! But a great trail nonetheless.

We hiked this on a day temps reached mid 90’s. We were unable to complete the hike .

Long flat stretches with small periods of incline. Rocky & rooty at times, but nothing too difficult. A couple of river views and falls! Overall a very enjoyable, quick trail

Nice trail but not the 3.9 miles and some of the wooden boards are not to good and it scared me.

A very nice stroll in the woods. Great for all skill levels. Plenty of “nature” to see if you know what to look for. Saw several birds; Flickers, Pileated woodpeckers, Cardinals, Robins, Red tailed hawk.

Nice trail for beginners or us old codgers.

Founders Park is open, but “Effective May 3: Flowing Well Park is closed to the public to undergo planned improvements, including Cool Creek bank stabilization, restroom construction, parking lot expansion, and updated interpretive signage and trails. The Clay Township Impact Program funds these enhancements as part of Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation’s Reimagining Parks initiative. The park will reopen after construction is complete in December of 2020.”

For North Point. Awesome warm up for the father trail, Hobbs. It’s super fun and pretty fast. My only complaint is the climb. The climb isn’t that bad, but 10 minutes of climb burned up with 1 minute of descent isn’t that favorable. However, you could do this North Point 10 times in a row and it doesn’t get old.

Nice trail. Inner loops seem to be the better trails. The farthest outer loop a little grown in. These trails make you feel very outback (in the woods). Some beautiful scenery around river, creeks and forest. Not a heavy groom, banks, or flow trail. I thank the team who keeps it in good condition. The trail shows it has had some TLC. Do not use the DNC web for trail status. Use the Facebook site for Versailles Stare Park Mountain bike site.

Trail was very active when we were there on a Sunday afternoon. Decided to cut down the bank instead of following the entire trail. Made for some interesting birds I’ve use of the falls. Nice place, but like others have mentioned, very busy

Super fun now that it is dry. You can go crazy fast and get mad air. Even after warmup loops, I was underprepared. I wrecked twice. One fine and the other was my worst wreck I’ve had ever. Be ready to go fast and get a lot of air time.

Really great vegetarian, super green. Not too muddy, which is perfect.

Beautiful and easy trail, I'll definitely be back. Saw a few water snakes, turtles, a great blue heron, and other wild life. Sadly there was quite a bit of garbage, sad to see. I packed out what I could, I'll bring a bigger bag next time.

Easy well marked trail. The loop may only be 2.2 miles, but there are other loops to add another mile or so to the distance.

Very nice, peaceful trail. Great for kids! At one point we could hear very little to no mechanical noise. There was a nice peaceful stream at the bottom. Near the beginning there were quite a few blowdowns, some of which I was surprised had not been removed yet.

Easy, short trail. Good for children. Climbing up the stairs at the end was the hardest part. There is a nice stream in the valley.

We had another beautiful hike at Low Gap Trail the weekend of Memorial Day on Friday. We did the entire 10.3 miles!! With the hike to and from the trailhead (we parked near the playground) as well as some times we started down a wrong path and had to come back, we did 11 miles. It was muddy but with hiking boots, isn’t an issue. We also saw a rattle snake inches from the trail about 8-9 miles into the trail if going clock wise so beware. Almost stepped on it. It was about 5-6 feet long. We struggled at about mile 7-8 losing some steam but picked it up to finish strong.

Excellent trail- little hard to follow but nothing a good map expert can’t figure out :)

Ho hum...nothing too exciting. Not quite sure what “camels back” means but perhaps we couldn’t see anything due to the plant growth.

Nice easy trail to the potholes. You can continue across the small creek, up the bank on the other side, and follow a well-worn trail another .2 miles for overlooks of the gorge and the 5’ waterfall Parking lot is big enough for 5-6 cars, so there were 15-20 cars parked down along the road Easy trail, bring water shoes if you prefer and walk up/ down through the gorge
