Nice trail. Very busy but plenty of camp sites.Rain on the way in but trail was in good shape. We were rewarded with a beautiful sunset

this was one of the best parks I have been to in a while in the midwest. It is clean and taken care of. The trails range from paved and flat to rugged, traversing the creek, up and down tougher hikes for an average person. I really enjoyed my day and was able to spend 3 hours moving through the park and viewing the awesome landscape.

We enjoyed it.

Muddy in some spots, not too many people, lots of nature

I think this trail is gonna be a favorite. Do not try this trail after the rains because if you do, you will have to walk more to cross the creek. When you get down there and you can not get across the creek, all you do is walk farther then cross.

Great hike; well groomed trail & bonus buffalo area!
Worth a trip...... FYI: $7.00 park entrance fee!

This is a great little park. Go for a nice walk, bring your kids for an "adventure" to swing on the swings and hop on the bones, or bring you rod and go fishing. You can't go wrong here.

Best trail in the park, but it is longer than 5.0, closer to 6.5. Also pay attention because there are some side trails marked red that are like detours. You won’t get lost, but they can confuse you and add a little distance as well. Enjoy

I live in Michigan City and there's no good mountain biking trails there, but this is well worth the 25 minute drive. The Outback trail is pretty cool, with lots of forks in the road with one being the easier path and one being the harder path.

good trail. easy to follow with some common sense. allitle more challenging with swollen creekbeds.

Great hike close to Indy!

I think that I am really liking this trail. We have already had a water crossing.

Nice trails but poorly marked.

This is my favorite trail in the Lafayette area, and I usually walk it a few times a month. It’s a quick walk but you feel deep in to nature. I love the focus on keeping all of the flowers and plants that are natural to the area. There are signs through the trails that identify trees and flowers, so it’s a great hike for educating kids too! My favorite flowers her is the Jack-in-the-pulpit.

Loved the trail. Be advised, though, they CLOSE close the park AT 8pm and if you aren’t out by then, you WILL be locked in until someone deigns to come let you out.

Nice and easy trails and pit stops. Good chance you'll see white tails amongst other animals with a great naturalistic atmosphere yet not too far from town.

Very pretty hike with some really nice views of the lake after the first big climb. Bring bug spray for the woodsy sections.

Nice trail, beautiful scenery. Unfortunately, the waterfall was dried up on our visit. There is a single disperse campsite located to the right of the entrance.

Nice relaxing walk, hiking trails are paved.

I went on 9/19/18 from 1:20pm-5:30pm. Gnats started to annoy the hell out of me around 1/5 of the trailer and they literally made it horrible for me and I really just wanted to get the hell out of there. Other than the gnats and the cobwebs and spiders I ate and displaced which was about 100 of them it was pretty cool. Saw some chipmunks and some squirrels, and also some frogs. Oh and I saw one guy with a HUGE German Shepherd. Lol thank god he was friendly

This is my favorite trail in this state park. You go thru a variety of terrain, including meadows, along creeks, and through winding hills.

I don’t love that bikes are allowed on this trail but it’s best to go the opposite direction of them so you can see them coming head on, rather than being surprised from behind.

As with many trails in this park, you can hear traffic and see the roads. This one isn’t horrible as you’re mostly hearing traffic inside the park, but it’s not the best sound to hear when you’re in nature.

Other than that, it’s my new favorite trail that’s close to downtown Indy.

A nice, 4.5 mile hike to get out of the city and get back into nature.

Reasons I don’t love this trail:
- it’s windy and very back-and-forth so during much of the trail, you see where you’re going and that just isn’t a fun feature for me;
- during some of the hike you can hear the car traffic on 465 and surrounding streets and it takes away from the experience of being in nature.

Beautiful trail for Indiana. Mostly shaded in the summer. Slightly rolling in places but still an easy trail. Nice lake view for .75 mile

The best place to run in Lebanon; however, there were no water fountains along the trail, so it’s not a good place to get a long run in unless you have some type of hydration pack.
