Wooded part was excellent. Trail in prairie portion was over-run and needs attention. Easy walk.

What an amazing place! Very rugged and long haul. Very quite. Lots to see!

Much better autumn trail than summer... need to have long pants and long-sleeved shirt. Trail not cared for well... or well used... massive spider webs cross trails every few feet... poison ivy all over trail itself and thorns and nettles. Nice view, good exercise but not for summer hiking in shorts or t-shirts.

we had a great hike today! beautiful location!

Some confusion about the Mount Etna State Recreational Area. No horses allowed there, if you were on horse trails you were in the wrong place. Mnt. Etna S.R.A is on the southeast edge of Salamonie Lake. There is a 13 mile trail (hike, bike, snowmobile) that loops from Mnt. Etna through Lost Bridge East to Lost Bridge West and back. The Bloodroot Trail(s) can be accessed from any of the above locations. You don't have to walk the same trail in and out. A very nice trail, well maintained, mostly wooded. There are also 6 backpack campsites (walk in only) available from the Mnt. Etna location. The trail shown for Lakeview and Boundry Trail is at Salamonie River State Forest on the northwest side of the dam, and yes there are horse trails there. The DNR has maps and info available on their website.

could be nice but horses have the trail rutted so bad I can't recommend it.

This trail is very short and there is a spot that is completely blocked by trees, which incidentally made the hike way better. A couple more miles of trail would make this preserve way better

There were many downed trees (large sycamores) that covered the trails. However, it made for a more rugged hike.

I absolutely love this place. Great fall camping and can't wait to bird watch in the spring. Trails are very well maintained, much to do and see. I highly recommend this place.

Pehkokia is a pretty easy hike. A good warm up today before we visited Hanging Rock and the Hathaway Preserve at Ross Run.

there is a lot of down trees which made it difficult to get through some of the trail but made for some excitement

It is probably fine as long as you don't take the right fork, which goes steeply down hill and then you hit innumerable fallen trees and brush across the path, basically blocking the trail.

We went around three different blocks by climbing up around the ridge and one by just climbing through it, before we hit another huge windfall and decided to call it a day. If you come prepared it would probably be fun, if you come expecting a trail, take the left fork.

As Naomi indicated, the inner loops are difficult to follow. I had trouble with tracking both of them in the direction that I started and had to follow them the reverse direction to pick up the rest.

Additionally, the grassy spur trail on the northeast corner isn't being mowed. You aren't missing much if you skip it.

I saw a deer in the woods while hiking here.

Outer loop is nice- as is the meadow section, but the two interior loops are not maintained. Visit the ACRES land trust website for trail map.

Lots of wildflowers now & the natural springs are cool.

Be sure to check out Tel Hy close by (5 min away) Also mileage isn't accurate probably.

Nice set of looped trails. We went to see eagles, and while we couldn't see the nest through the trees, we did see a pair of bald eagles flying over the woods.

Storms must have hit this area pretty hard- river is high, trees are down on the trails. Bug spray is also a must. Pretty boggy in areas. Be prepared to get muddy but see a nice bit of woods. I would rate this trail physically harder than moderate. Mud didn't help though.
