Sweet

Nice wide trail. Cool cave and a few creek crossings.

Enjoyed this trail. Started with trail 8 in the campground and it connects with trail 5. A few creek crossings but no wet feet.

I'm an avid hiker/explorer and this place is a blast! Make sure you have atleast a full day to enjoy this magical place!

Well-marked trail. Enjoyed the cave and the creek crossings. A well-kept park with nice scenery. Plan to return in the fall.

This park is very well maintained and the trails are well marked! We couldn’t record our hike because my phone battery is not stellar, but we hiked 7.6 miles with a combination of 8, 1, 5, 4, & 7. It was a super hot day and we were pleased to find that the Nature Center on the south end of the park is air conditioned with a lovely bird viewing room. We saw all of the falls but I think Tunnel Falls was the best! I liked Little Clifty Falls as well. When the map says the trail is rugged, they’re not kidding. The ruggedness is a great challenge, but be prepared to climb up and down on rock and roots quite a bit. Also, people who are afraid of heights should maybe stay on trail 2, because there are many drop-offs next to the trails up on the ridge. Overall we had a challenging, but rewarding, day in the outdoors!

Love love loved this cave hike and afterward we took trail 3 and 10 to go check out the falls. We stayed at the falls for quite a while then headed back to Nature Center
Had a great nights sleep

Loved trail 5. Tunnel Falls was my favorite waterfalls of the day, Caution on the rocks leading up to the tunnel as they are slick. The tunnel is closed to foot traffic from fall to spring. Trail 5 goes around the tunnel also. South end of trail has a 153 step staircase that will give you a great quad workout. There is also a leg of the trail to take you to the creek.

This has become my favorite hike since moving to Indiana! I would agree with some of the other reviews that say that this is a more moderate difficulty. The rocks can be a bit slippery so make sure to wear shoes with good traction!

This trail is literally five minutes from the home I grew up in and it took 25 years for me to find it! Absolutely gorgeous. It’s fun to see the diversity, going from fairytale waterfalls to swampland to thick forests and bamboo. Great trail to explore! I’d recommend bringing shoes that you are okay with getting wet. :)

Many hiking trails offering great views and beauty all around. The canyons are so much fun to climb in for all ages.

This is my favorite place in Indiana. I would not call this a Hard trail. My 68 year old mother can do this trail with her tiny yorkie under her arm. Moderate for sure. Potentially depending on how much water is on the trail. I see small children doing this one all the time. Its absolutely beautiful though. The rock walls are so full of color and character. Its just breathtaking down there.

Fantastic little 1 mile hike with gorgeous surroundings, cool breeze, lush foliage!
Perfect for kids, beginners & a quick workout.
Cool streams to splash in & explore!
Loved it!

on Trail #3

Trail 3 is absolutely beautiful. The rock formations are huge and keep the air cool even on hot days. We hiked almost the entire trail. The description is hard but our 11, 8 and 4 year olds did fine on it for the most part. I opted to avoid the ladders by connecting with trail 10 for the last part of the trail. My husband and 8 year old did the ladders with no problem.

This is one of my favorite trails, thus far. We hit this trail on a Wednesday in June, after a morning of Kayaking. The trail was not overly crowded, but we did pass by a few hikers along the way. This is an adventurous trail. We started by going to the right, causing us to climb down the ladders, but we enjoyed this direction because we got to climb up the cascades. I would highly recommend this trail to anyone looking for an interesting hike. My husband has never pulled out a camera on a hike, but he did on this trail! We will do this again.

Surprised that another review said this trail was well-marked a month ago because it certainly wasn't when I went yesterday. I had to stop to check a map more than once and I even had to turn around when the path I was following suddenly ended. There were also a lot of bugs even with bug spray. And my 30 lbs dog was too scared to do the metal stairs and had to be carried. The waterfall was enjoyable though. I would go back but only for the waterfall (not the trail) and only without my dog.

Went out to the wolf cave and then turned back around. Looking forward to going back to finish the trail and climb through the cave.

Nice easy trail with beautiful waterfall, cave, and wetlands. Took the kids and the dogs. The blue heeled had hard time w metal staircase boxer had a little trouble but walked it all the way down. I would definitely come again.

I always enjoy the trails here. You can walk through a creek that ends by turning into a small waterfall and swimming hole or walk the many trails and see beautiful scenery and caves.

Great hike! The trail is moderate unless you decide to go through the cave. If you go through you will need a light and hiking shoes. We saw a lot of people in open toes. in this case the open toes lead to a ripped off toe nail. The cave trail is short but rocky. One of the cave entraces is easy to access but getting out of the other side requires a belly crawl. The opening to get out is only about 12" so I would not recommend this adventure for anyone that won't go into a crawl space. The forrest in the park are absolutely beautiful with lots of old growth trees. As always make sure you put on bug spray with deet and take water with you.

Hiked this trail before finding this app. Trail #3 is a nice trail. It passes through some virgin timber, along several sinkholes, caves, and has plenty of ups and downs. The trail markings where it intersects with Trail #4 can be a bit confusing. Nice trail overall.

We hiked this trail on a sunny Saturday. Trail #3 is a great trail with lots of fun features like the ladders and the creek beds. Trail #3 was crowded but you have to expect that on a summer Saturday. It does have the advantage for much of the trail of being below ground and more moderate in temperature. It was a bit steamy outside so this was appreciated. Trail #9 is less crowded. It does have many stair you have to descend and then climb back up. Turkey Run is a great place to hike with many fun trails. We love to go here.
