nice little park plenty of trail running says you can ride a bike too but wouldnt be much of a challenge

Love this place as it's a nice escape to hike. Lots of wildflowers and some hills following the creek.

Moderately easy trail, good for getting out and close to the city. Some areas can get muddy so don’t bring your new kicks.

Great running trail. Super easy for a beginner runner. The trail does a lot of dips and small hills, but nothing too difficult. Very muddy because of rain in January and heavy foot traffic. Trail was pretty crowded on a Saturday afternoon and I could hear the cars on interstate for most of the trail too. But overall, really fun!

Well maintained

This trail was awesome! Highs and lows for Indiana. Quite a bit of mud, but that was expected after it rained for days here. I had a lot of fun with the family!

I agree I would not call this trail moderate. It should be easy. One hill with steps doesn’t qualify it as moderate for me. I like being “off road”

Nice hike but a lot of it was on asphalt which was a downer. I liked the woods portion.

Decent hike close to the city. some up & downs give a good workout. We went to the inside trails.

Really wonderful views throughout. Took the dog and he enjoyed it as well. Not muddy at all if you stay on the trails. Pleasantly surprised! Will be making multiple trips back.

Really good trail

Nice loop trail that encompasses a lake in NE Indianapolis. Very accessible to take a walk during your lunch break and/or before/after work to enjoy the outdoors. Plenty of various birds, ducks and geese visit the area along with the fish. Have saw a bald eagle fly overhead while walking here as well!

Nice, easy quick trail to spend some quiet time in the woods by the water. You may come across someone fishing.

For Indianapolis I give it a five star. Great for biking, walking or running. For a beginner biker I’ve taken a few brutal spills but this time of year (Nov) it is a great running trail due to less traffic. Doesn’t hurt that it’s also like 10 min from home. Only 20 min drive from downtown on a weekend.

fun place! wish the trails we're marked better, but otherwise they are very well maintained.

For being in Indianapolis, the trails are decent, but not nearly as good as Eagle Creek or Fort Harrison. Mosquitoes are a very real problem here. In the winter months it is kind of nice, but in the summer it is virtually impossible because of the mosquitos. So in the winter, if it is close to home, I recommend it. I definitely would not travel over 20 minutes to get here. There are much better alternatives.

Lovely hike. Very few people. Beautiful view of the reservoir particularly in the fall when all the leaves are changing.

Single track that is more geared for bikes than hikers, but still accessible on foot. Nice oasis in the middle of a lot of businesses. Definitely ensure that there has not been recent rain or you will have muddy pathes!

More bikes than runners / Hikers on this trail but its an awesome single track for the whole 6 miles. For almost being in the city this is a great escape.

They are currently expanding the trails here to make the course longer. When I wanted to get in some Vertical this is where I would go! The description says 2.1 miles but you can run the MTB part which connects the two trails to make it a lot longer and more difficult.

Awesome trail, not maintained as well as eagle creek but definitely more difficult with hills and tree jumping. I recommend this trail when Eagle Creek is packed on the weekends there is usually no one on this trail!!

Trail is short but there is other trails that connect to this one. Very secluded part of the park, I found myself coming here on the weekends when eagle creek was packed out!

Great for trail running very well maintained park! I suggest getting a season pass in the begging of summer for $50. Parking is usually $5 per car so be cautious of that!

Relaxing walk easy trails

First time in Fort Harrison. First time using this app. Enjoyed both. Chipmunks and squirrels and deer, oh my!
