Explore the most popular fishing trails in Indiana with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

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.

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.

A paved path the wanders along White Lick Creek and thru the woods. Hummel Park is a typical city park with the usual amenities. A playground for the kids. An outdoor performing arts venue. Athletic fields and picnic shelters. There is also a sizeable sledding hill when snow is on the ground. Spotted either a hawk or a falcon perched in the underbush beside a pond, ( I'm no bird expert but I believe it was or the other).

A great resource for this part of the state. The hiking trail was longer, more meandering, and more challenging than I had anticipated, all of which were nice. I first hiked this trail in January 2018, with a full backpack and trekking poles, during snow and cold weather. I saw only a few ice fishermen and one mountain biker when I was there, so lightly populated. I wish I had visited Westwood sooner and will definitely be back.

Theres a great fire tower that you can hike or drive too, really nice in the late summer

Very nice paved trail along White River. It is only 1.5 miles from Potter's bridge to Field Drive which would make it only 3 miles out and back. Not sure how this became rated as a 6.8 mile trail. There are quite a few benches to sit and rest. There is a mile marker every 1/4 mile.

Nice quite well maintained trails. Take our dogs ,lashed, here for cold weather outings. We avoid it in warm season because the place has extremely high tick population. You also must hick the Archery trail, provided they are not shooting.

Awesome one nighter on Dec 2 weekend. Beautiful views. Didn't see much wildlife, although we did see an eagle cruising over Lake Monroe. Last weekend of hunting season, we did hear numerous gun shots in the evening and morning. Encountered one hunter who was processing his deer on the trail. I'll do this trail again, but not during hunting season.

We loved this trail. Beautiful views around the lake, very peaceful. My golden retriever had a great time too!

Nice trail. Clean and marked well. Took four kids aged 12, 11, 9, and 6 and everyone had a great time. Beautiful views of the lake.

The trails are okay, not necessarily the best maintained, but still passable. The people who said they had to pay are in the minority, as the park is free 99% of the time.

Horse damage, and waste, is a rare problem.

Ok, but it is a small loop. Some houses on the edges.

A paved trail that follows the eastern bank of the White River. The covered bridge that spans the White River was opened in 1871. Parts of the trail are built on what used to be the Interurban Rail Line. The trail is dotted with several old sycamore trees.

Great trail with awesome lake views !! Easy hike and kid friendly

it's a great trail. A tip do not do it when it's hot out.and if you want to get a camp site the best ones are 6and2

Well maintained trail with clear signage. Good for beginners. Has six campsites and site 6 has the best view. You could easily hike the entire trail in a day, but it is also a great place to camp/test gear for larger backpacking trips.

Giving three stars because too much of the trail is prairie. The areas of forest are much more scenic (beautiful in the fall), but I'm not a fan of the prairie areas.

**Deer hunters are present in the fall so be aware and wear something bright orange.

The trail was beautiful! Well marked. It is also well maintained. We chose a camp site out by the beach. A great weekend!

We may have gone off trail, for sure. But going into the woods, there are some cool rock-faces to climb and just an overall beautiful area.
