Good, more natural trail in the woods. Nice to have a place to walk that’s not just a paved path!

Great trail with wonderful, woodsy, views. My pregnant wife and I walked at a relatively slow pace and completed it in an hour and a half.

Such a gorgeous trail, mostly all in the shade. Nostly for mountain bikes but an awesome hike as well, we loved hiking it!

This is a nice meandering trail. Use caution as it’s a MTB trail too. No benches or pic-nick tables on this trail.

Love the terrain and the trail- I was expecting more bikes but no issues. I was trail running and at some point I missed a sign. But it was a nice easy run.

Great trail. Took us approximately 1 hour to complete. Not too busy, but did step off trail to allow bikers to pass by. Would definitely do this trail again to train for trail running.

very nice surprise

Nice trail. Well marked. Very scenic with the water and birds.

Well-maintained and well-trafficked trail that’s good for hiking or trail running. Definitely would consider this to be more easy than moderate

This is the long trail in Fort Harrison. Beautiful trail with loads of trees and wildlife. Little slick in spots after the rain but not too bad

Loved it! Very kid friendly!

Nice trail. We got a bit turned around at one point and looped back to somewhere else on the trail. But we were able to take a shortcut back to our car from where we ended up. It was really pretty though. Nice flowers and beautiful trees. Very wooded, easy trail to hike.

Great Hike. Good for dogs. Only thing is to watch out for bikers. I met some speedy bikers along skinnier parts of the trail and they’re traveling pretty fast so just be careful. Also, many bikers don’t yield to you like they’re supposed to. Lastly, it’s not a really well marked trail. There are multiple splits that don’t tell you which way to go, so be wary of that.

Relaxing and surprisingly dry.

Nice trail with some elevation changes (a rarity in Central Indiana!).

Just discovered this trail on All Trails app and I live close enough to walk there! What a great trail for hiking or trail running. Lots of variation,ups and downs to keep your blood pumping, over many fallen trees on the trail, under them as well. Today the trail was muddy in several spots, difficult at times to know if you were on the actual trail, no markings.....but all that said, I can’t wait to get back over there and do it again!

I live near here so an annual pass is a must! This is a beautiful park 15 minutes from Downtown Indy, though you’d never know you were so close because of the setting! I run this trail often, it’s about 6.5 miles if you complete the loop. You have some slight elevation, run beside a lake, lots of variation. I’d rate it as a very enjoyable somewhat moderate trail. If you’re experienced more of an easy rating. It’s definitely worth your time to visit Eagle Creek Park and the Red Trail is my favorite of all!

Nice little trail. Very windy with moderate elevation changes. Hikers do not believe the title at the park, it is NOT difficult. What makes it difficult is that this is shared with bikers and very few follow the one way/yielding rules. All traffic is to go one way and bikers yield to runners and hikers but they dont. Like always, people are what is wrong with the trail. Would be a good workout for a biker with few obstacles but frequent and sudden elevation changes.

Super easy trail though most is near the creek so flooding can be a big problem depending on the time of year. Be prepared for it to be closed or very muddy. Other than that, very easy, wide, flat trail.

The trail is totally flooded today. Come prepared for a nice walk on the road. Wait till the waters recede and I’ll give it 5 stars !

Trail follows the western shoreline if Eagle Creek Reservoir. Trail maps are not available from Indy Parks. Outstanding views of the reservoir. Some low lying areas are extremely wet. Times of heavy rains will probable make portions of the trail underwater. Lots of blowdown on the trail.

This is a narrow benchcut singletrack built and maintained by Hoosier Mountain Bike association. It is of 3 serious mountain bike courses in Indianapolis (besides Town Run and Southwestway). Keep this in mind as there are MANY places exclusive to foot traffic in Indianapolis. It's not that it's popular with Mountain Bikers it's one of the few places they are allowed ... and they are required to buy an additional $20 annual pass for the privelege.

There is also hiking only off-road trails in the northeast section of the park along fall creek. The trails there are wider and it's easier to negotiate passes

A bigger version of the South Overlook Trail. More of trail is through Eagle Creek Park forest.. It partially follows what is called the fitness trail located in the northeast portion of the trail. Exercise equipment available for those that chose to exert themselves even more.

Portions of green trail share the same footprint as orange trail on the south and blue trail on the north. The north-south leg of the trail are within a few yards of I-465 and I-65. Very noisy and not to picturesque along that portion. Appears to be a good cross country skiing trail due to it being a flat trail. Someone has used it for that as there were ski tracks in the snow. Highlight of the hike, spotted a big buck crossing the trail. However, I was to slow to get a picture.
