path was not difficult. some mild hills and shallow ravines make path interesting, but not challenging. the path is mostly gravel with some grassy spots. the path is four to five feet wide throughout path. very enjoyable and just long enough to make the hiker feel it was worth doing, but with plenty of energy left for more. it took just over thirty minutes at a leisure pace.

This is a beautiful trail and an easy hike. Enjoyed the waterfalls.

Suggest taking the creek side first (clockwise) so you’re descending stairs and going down creek. Great trail with lots of creek walking.

Paved trail. Use the trail for a dog walking spot. Greenwood City Parks is developing pathways along Pleasant Creek. Great place for a walk while letting the kids play.

Trail 1 is beautiful and not as busy as the popular trail 3. It’s a nice hike to take 1 to 2 to 4 across the covered bridge.

8 is a great trail with lots of views of the gorge below. Clifty creek (trail 2) was running high and swift. I crossed it and did trails 3/4/5/6/7 to see all the falls and make a 9.5 mile loop.

This is a new paved trail. Wide lanes and great views.

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

Nice easy hike with a little pond along the way. Cant wait until it warms up some more and I can ride my new bike along here.

Hiked the entire trail on 2/09/18. Very nice views of surrounding knob country and farm fields. The lake is beautiful. The tower structure shown in one of the pictures is actually an old airway beacon. If you want to see it take a side hike north to the top of Rock Knob. The trail at the time I hiked was very muddy and it has numerous steep climbs..A pair of walking sticks come in handy, particulary for the descents on slick leaves.

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.

This is a short trail but it is the only woodland trail near this city. It is actually 2 trails, a nature trail and a fitness trail with activities you can do for exercise along the way. The trails are connected. If you bring your dog there is a small dog park also near the trail head. I was here after a fresh snow and there was no one around.

I find this trail not very challenging nor enjoyable. However, there is not much hiking in this part of the state without driving an hour to get to the bloomington area.
